If you want to function as the sharp shooter of one’s team that the coach turns to each time a big shot will become necessary, it’s going to have a serious commitment. Day in and day out. Practice, Repetition, Practice, Repetition!!
As a freshman I was considered a great shooter, but I wasn’t even near to being on course to holding my senior school 3 point record! I began the summer season whilst the kick off point guard for the JV team. For the summer season I shot 30% from behind the arc, nearly hall of fame percentages. I did so get pulled as much as Varsity for sectionals and saw 1:33 of action at the end of the overall game trailing be double digits. I squeezed one shot up that happened to become a 3 pointer and I made it. It was a great feeling to have hit my one and only shot attempt at the varsity level. It gave me an enormous surge of motivation going into the off-season.
One thing I was conscious of going into that off-season was that my form was not exactly Steve Kerr Text Book form. I knew if I needed to become a consistent, dependable shooter I’d to fix my form no matter how hard it absolutely was to change something I have been doing for years. I was comfortable shooting with my elbow out and my off hand totally out of place. I really was made aware with this at a Purdue University Basketball Camp where they recorded our form and would help us correct it.
In the beginning I didn’t like the notion of changing my form because I really didn’t think I would have the ability to get comfortable shooting a brand new way in real game situations شارب شوتر. That thinking was counter productive. Once I realized the change could be worth every penny when my teammates and coaches took notice of my perfect form and trusted me in pressure situations. I kept that in the back of my mind throughout the change of form.
I would begin literally two feet from the hoop and release the ball with perfect form and I was sure to follow along with through on every shot. It’s hard to stress how important repetition was in this process. I would shoot 100 shots from 5 feet and in until my arm would get tired. I would slowly work my in the past to the free-throw line and just continue to shoot, follow-through, shoot, follow-through, over and over and over.
Once I completely committed myself to the newest form I was able to get comfortable with it much earlier than I thought possible. Before when I would try to enhance my form I would always return to my old form, and never stay glued to it. This time I stuck to it and I refused to hold a go with bad form. Within one month I was comfortable in scrimmage games shooting the ball, and I was getting special notice from my coach at the positive change to my game. Much more important than that, my confidence begun to skyrocket! I couldn’t wait to have on the court and practice my new form. It was amazing, I was hitting my 3’s consistently and began to have very excited to start the newest season.
I believe two 3 point shooting drills I did so made the difference for me. The very first one I call it the Bryce Drew Drill. I was told Bryce Drew from Valporazo used to produce 100 three pointers moving around the arc in 7 minutes with anyone rebounding. I used to love achieving this drill, it requires serious concentration to get to 100. Not to mention your arm is completely exhausted by the time you finish. My best time ever completing the drill was 7minutes 18 seconds. It really increased my confidence and paid down when the summer season began.
The second drill I would do on a typical basis was also considered a stamina drill. I would placed on of my favorite songs and run the size of the court shooting 3’s at each basket. I would do this for the size of one song then rest for a few minutes and do it again. Usually anywhere from 5 to 10 times. This drill really paid down for me during my Senior year. I’d defenses put up not to i’d like to catch the ball in rhythm denying me from getting the type of shots I was used to getting as a sophomore and junior. There have been many times when I would bring the ball down the court and be open at the 3 point line and knock down the shot. It became an easy shot from so much practice achieving this drill.
