This week's 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..

To give your team the best chance at scoring when faced with the basket this session teaches them the basics of shooting. By working on their body position and shooting technique you'll 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

Find out if your players have got BEEF with this week's session!
