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!

DETAILS:

We have opened up registration for our Shooting Program with a choice of Monday June 10 OR Tuesday June 11 as the kick off dates for this summer long program (combination in person and at home teachings and skill development). We've continued to enhance this market leading program and are offering a summer long program that works for players that are busy with Camps and Vacations. Our Shooting Program has sold out every year, so please register early!

The program format is as follows:
  • Personalized Video Analysis (6/10 OR 6/11): Our Shooting Program kicks off with an in person session on either Monday, June 10th or Tuesday, June 11th - Players will attend a teaching session which includes personal video analysis, 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.
  • Virtual Component: Players will then receive a personalized recommendation via email after their session. Throughout the summer, they will receive weekly emails with drills and/or shooting challenges that they can participate in. They will be part of a "virtual group" using the MaxOne app so they can compete against other players of similar age on shooting challenges. They can work on these drills/challenges whenever they have free time between vacations/camps.
  • In Person Assessment (7/23 OR 8/13): Over the summer we will have an in-person assessment of the player's development. You will have your choice of July 23 or August 13 for this session and we will check on the players progress and mechanics, work on specific shooting drills, and provide direction on what to work on for the remainder of the summer to get ready for AAU/Travel/School Team tryouts.

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.
