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 6 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 youth organizations 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" without proper instruction.

- Local Shooting Program: The focused Shooting Program that we offer to our local players is now part of the Blazers Skills Academy, with a big focus on working with players during the offseason to make material improvements in their shooting mechanics. During the offseason program, players attend a 1 night session (generally in late June right as school is getting out) where they receive some critical education on shooting mechanics, a video analysis of their shot, and detailed recommendations for improvement. Players are provided with specific drills/measures to drive their at home work to "burn in" improved mechanics, and review progress/tweak approach with their shooting coach at regular intervals during the offseason.

- Youth League Hosted Shooting Program: A one night shooting program hosted by a youth organization in their local gym. See below for more information.

YOUTH LEAGUE HOSTED SHOOTING PROGRAM: For youth basketball organizations that are interested in improving the shooting proficiency of their players, we will be offering a limited number of organizations an opportunity to host one of our 2 hour shooting programs in their local gym. Youth league directors that are interested can contact us at info@blazersbasketballclub.com for more information.
