Basketball Shooting Course & Practice Drills - Discover How to Improve Your Shooting Stroke and Become a Lights Out Shooter!
Plus Special Material for Coaches: Discover How to Develop Your Entire Team into High Percentage Shooters (Step by Step)
From: Jeff Haefner & Joe Haefner
Dear Basketball Coaches, Players, and Parents:
Is there any skill that's more important than shooting?
I think we all know that shooting is important but take a second to consider these three points:
- Great basketball shooting can literally get you a college scholarship, even if you're short and slow! Countless players in the past have earned themselves scholarships, simply based on the fact that they can shoot a very high percentage from long range.
- Great shooters usually get more playing time because coaches always want players that can stretch out the defense.
- A very small improvement in shooting percentage can easily add another 10 points your teams score and help you win more games.
But before getting into the details of this new basketball shooting system, I have a few more important points that I want to convey (whether you order our new shooting system or not).
We want to share with you the...
5 Dead-Serious Truths About Basketball Shooting That ALL Coaches And Players Should Understand and Accept
FACT #1: Shooting is the #1 most important skill for basketball players to master.
FACT #2: More players have poor shooting strokes and detrimental flaws today, than they ever have in the past. This is primarily because kids start playing at such an early age and they try to mimic NBA players before they are ready. The sad truth is that these bad shooting habits stick with them.
FACT #3: Proper shooting form is the #1 most important skill for youth basketball coaches to master and teach.
FACT #4: A team with just a couple of good shooters on the floor will make your offense infinitely more dangerous and actually give your team more lay ups. Good shooters stretch out the defense and can dramatically improve your team offense.
FACT #5: A small improvement in your teams shooting percentage, will allow you to win more games. Simple math tells us that teams with high shooting percentages tend to win a lot of games.
That's why we have devoted so much attention and spent so much time developing a basketball shooting program for both coaches and players!
We have literally spent thousands of hours researching, writing, and preparing this system for you.
How This Unique System Was Developed
So we did extensive research and gathered all the best information in ONE place. We conducted fairly extensive interviews with some of the best shooting coaches in the world. Some of these guys will blow you away. We feel lucky that they talked with us.
We have prepared this system after:
- Thoroughly studying TWELVE major professional DVDs and books on shooting.
- Studying TWO on-line programs on the topic.
- Interviewing SIX top experts in the field.
So, you can be confident in knowing that all of the information represents the best advice you could hope for on this important topic.
Some of the most exciting information came from interviewing these 6 experts in the shooting field. We wholeheartedly thank them for spending time with us and sharing their advice.
