"Coach, can you help me with my shooting?"
These are two common questions that aspiring young basketball players ask. So we go out on the driveway, or court, and try to explain some basics in shooting, with maybe some shooting experience of our own (but really without a repeatable "system"), and then tell 'em to practice a lot.
Sounds good? -- well, no... first, get Tom Nordland's SWISH DVD(s). After viewing and studying Tom's DVDs, you will actually understand shooting mechanics, the basics in becoming an excellent shooter, and the basics in how to teach it.
Personally, I wish I had a video like this years ago when I was a kid! Not only would I have become a better shooter, and known HOW to practice, but also I would have had a better understanding of how to teach and help the players I have coached over the years. Having studied Tom's video, I will be a better shooting coach with future players.
Tom Nordland was a great player and scorer in his own playing days, and has coached shooting skills to many advanced players, including collegiate and NBA players.
The Swish videos take the viewer through the principles of good shooting. Its four keys are to:
(1) shoot from a strong power force (UpForce),
(2) minimize variables with a constant release,
(3) aim high and be ready to vary the height or arc of the shot, and
(4) vary the timing of the shot as required.
The correct release is demonstrated and is shown how this can be taught systematically to players with simple drills. Then the UpForce is described, and then the coupling of the UpForce and release in the jump shot. Free throw shooting is also covered.
Mental aspects of shooting are touched upon. And the basics of shooting -- the grip, stance, vision (aim), set position and release and follow-through are reviewed. Finally, drills and fun shooting games are added for practicing.
If you are a player wanting to learn to shoot, or a baffled parent wanting to help his/her kid, or a coach who really wants to be able to help players develop their shooting skills, definitely look at the Swish DVDs!
When I was a kid, coaches often thought good shooters were "born", a God-given talent... not something you could really teach. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Excellent shooters are not "born", they become great shooters by using correct, simple, repeatable shooting techniques, coupled with hours of practice, drills, and eventually, confidence. Just about anyone can be taught to shoot correctly if the motivation is there!
