Shooting and Rebounding

This Session looks at the Shooting Fundamentals. By the end of this training your players will be scoring with a flick of the wrist and a swish of the net.

People who say "Teams that don't shoot, don't win games" are only half right - A more accurate statement is "Teams that don't score, don't win games!"

To give your team the best chance at scoring when faced with the basket it's best to teach them the basics and to teach them right. By working on their body position and shooting technique you will be able to lay a solid foundation for your players and give them an excellent starting base from which they can continue to grow as a player.

To teach correct technique we use BEEF:

Balance - Good balance, weight on the balls of your feet, just over shoulder width apart

Elbow - Want the elbow tucked into your side. Want to keep everything in a straight line

Eyes - Looking up and straight at the front of the rim

Follow through - The ball should come off of the index finger and the follow through should be pointing at the basket
