How to shoot 3s to the best of my ability?

How can I improve my ability to shoot threes more consistently?

Hi Jamal,


When looking to improve your performance of a key fundamental skill then repetition is vital to seeing improvements.


I'd suggest staying behind for a couple of minutes after a session and practice shooting around the circle to fine tune the skill. Practice really does make perfect. Here's a good drill for you to start with!
