What will players get out of the camp?

Foundation of Shooting
This is the first step in becoming a great shooter. Some players will progress through this stage quickly, while others will need to spend a bit more time to correct some bad habits. You will also learn:
  • How your stance could actually be causing your shot to go left and right and how to fix it.
  • Why the parallel stance may not be the right fit for you.
  • How your legs and not just your follow through can actually cause a flat shot.
  • The proper release point and follow through.
  • How inflexibility in your legs can affect your shot in a negative way.
  • Learn the Steve Nash adjustment that allows players to shoot accurately from further distances.

Shooting Off of the Dribble Like Russell Westbrook & Kyrie Irving
As the levels go up, it's very important to add a pull up jump shot off of the dribble. This gives you the ability to score as defenders rush out to defend the initial shot. You will learn:
  • The often ignored, but important progressions for the shot off of the dribble learned from legendary Hal Wissel who coached in the NBA.
  • Learn how to properly pick up the basketball and how doing it the wrong way could be causing your shot to miss to the left and the right.
  • Learn how the pace of the dribble can make your shot quicker.
  • Learn how to properly execute the sweep and step through to create space from your defender.
  • Learn the mentality needed to have a successful pull-up jump shot and how the wrong mentality can be easily defended.
Learn Advanced Shooting Techniques Used by the Pros
  • You will learn the keys to a quick release used by the pros such as Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. You will learn the Michael Jordan 1-2 step used to create space and hit the open jumper.
  • You will learn the details required to be successful with these advanced moves. If you're not ready for the advanced moves yet, we have a system set up that will progress players at the proper rates.
