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 in a way that is age appropriate and leverages teaching methods that are effective with the age group they are working with.


ABOUT OUR SHOOTING PROGRAM: Over the past 5 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 used by over 100 youth leagues throughout the U.S. that use our digital coaching platform). In 2017 we created 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. We have done a custom video analysis and recommendation for more than 400 local players, and continue to evolve this market leading program. The program is extremely valuable for youth basketball players, most of which have developed some bad habits and "negative muscle memory" learning either on their own or without proper instruction.

SHOOTING PROGRAM OPTIONS:
- June/Summer Shooting Program: Players attend a 1 night session in June (before school is out) where they receive some critical education on shooting mechanics, a video analysis of their shot, and a detailed recommendations for improvement. Players have the option to also join a handful of shooting/instruction sessions over the summer.
- Blazers Shooting Academy: (exclusively for Club Team players) During most of the school year, we work weekly with Academy players on improving their mechanics, mental focus, and confidence.
- Youth League Hosted Shooting Program: A one night shooting program hosted by a youth organization in their local gym. See below for more information.


2021 SHOOTING PROGRAM DETAILS

Overview of Program: Players attend a roughly 2 hour session (choice of either June 14th or 15th) and during this comprehensive session we will use shooting drills, challenges, and contests to test their current proficiency, perform a video analysis of their current mechanics, educate players on the keys to shooting mechanics, make specific recommendations for focus areas, and provide them with some suggested drills to work on their shot and measure their progress.
Optional/Additional: if a player also wants to work with us on their shot throughout the summer, the player can pick 6 weeknight sessions throughout the summer to join an in person shooting workout (based on when they are available). This program is extremely valuable to players of all ages, and is being offered at a significant discount to private shooting lessons.
