14 Things Great Shooters Do
by Alan Stein, CCS, CSCS, and owner of StrongerTeam.com
In my opinion, truly great shooters will soon be on the World Wildlife Federation’s Endangered Species list. Players at every level are getting better
and better at scoring… but pure shooters are a dying bread.
If you want to play more minutes or to play at the next level, shooting is one skill that every team needs and every coach covets.
Like pure gold, pure shooters are at a premium these days.
Here are 14 Things Great Shooters Do:
My good friend, colleague and business partner, Drew Hanlen of Pure Sweat Basketball offered me these solid gold shooting nuggets:
If you practice shooting with bad form, all you will do is get good at bad shooting.
If you can’t make 60-70% of a specific shot during your workouts (when you are unguarded), you shouldn’t shoot that shot in a game!
Having a great shooting percentage comes from 3 things:
Developing a great shot through purposeful practice
Knowing your range and ‘hot spots’ on the court
Taking great shots within the flow of the game.
I highly recommend all players and coaches get Drew’s Competitive Shooting Challenges Drill Book. It is an invaluable resource http://tinyurl.com/PSshooting
All the best the rest of this season!
