Shooting Program Overview:
Being a consistently strong shooter can make the game of basketball a LOT of fun for a very long time...and it's clear that the game has evolved and that perimeter shooting has become the strategic weapon! This change has opened up lots of opportunities for players that can become consistently strong shooters. But the reality is that becoming a better shooter is not easy. A player needs the correct instruction on hand positioning, footwork, rhythm, arc, and other aspects of shooting....and then needs very focused practice and feedback in order to "burn in" good shooting form. Given this, few youth players have a consistent shot. Unfortunately most youth coaches don't have nearly enough expertise or practice time to be able to effectively focus on developing good shooting form. This promises to be a valuable yet really fun program - we hope your son or daughter can make it!
Format: This program will combine video analysis and arc analysis, sound instruction, plenty of practice, and some shooting challenges and competitions that will make it fun for players to truly improve their shot!. We will spend 1 on 1 time with each player to look at their mechanics and make suggestions for improvement. We will use a variety of form shooting drills and other shooting drills/challenges to make sure players get plenty of practice. We will also be using a number of shooting competitions to make the practice fun and mimic the intensity and pressure of a real game.
We plan to offer 2 levels of the program as defined below. During the first day, we will identify those players who are ready for the Intermediate Level:
- General Level: for players who are looking to understand and develop very strong foundational mechanics, and are still working to develop or "burn in" the core elements of strong mechanics (whether or not they've joined our shooting program in the past).
- Intermediate Level: for those who have been to one of our shooting programs in the past, understand AND demonstrate strong foundational shooting mechanics, and are ready to move on to more advanced shooting topics and competitions (shooting off the dribble, preparing the shot, etc.)
Program Fee: TBA
About Our Shooting Program: Over the past few years, we've developed and have been refining a teaching method and shooting program that instills sound foundational mechanics in young players (this teaching method is now now used by over 100 youth leagues throughout the U.S. that use our digital coaching platform). In the past year we've developed an in-depth program for local players that leverages our proprietary shot analysis and teaching method, along with both video analysis and arc analysis technologies. This unique program has been very well received as it helps players understand the keys to being a consistently strong shooter, what they are doing today, and what they need to work on to improve their shot. This program is extremely valuable for young players, most of which have developed some bad habits and "negative muscle memory" attempting to shoot from too great a distance at a 10 ft rim.

Youth League Hosted Shooting Program: For Massachusetts youth basketball organizations that are interested in improving the shooting proficiency of their players, we will be offering a limited number of leagues an opportunity to host one of our 2.5 hour shooting programs in their local gym. Youth league directors that are interested can contact us at email@example.com for more information.
