New 3-Day Shooting & Ball handling Camp in
Jordan Valley, Oregon - June 27-29, 2017
Elite Skills Coach Jeff Stapleton!
This is a hybrid of our popular "Shooting" and "Ball handling & Finishing" Camps.
With this 3 day camp in Jordan Valley, Oregon...
We will work on the foundation of shooting, developing a quick release, and shooting off the catch.
We will work on ball handling drills to beat your defender off the dribble, and finishing moves to become crafty around the rim.
In additional to all of this, we will focus on confidence, mental toughness, hard work, smart work, and other intangibles to develop great shooters & ball handlers. .
Here are a few things that you will learn at the camp:
Foundation of Shooting
This is the first step in becoming a great shooter. Some players will progress through this stage quickly, while others will need to spend a bit more time to correct some bad habits. You will also learn:
How your stance could actually be causing your shot to go left and right and how to fix it.
Why the parallel stance may not be the right fit for you.
How your legs and not just your follow through can actually cause a flat shot.
The proper release point and follow through.
How inflexibility in your legs can affect your shot in a negative way.
