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.
Fortunately there are many things you can do as a player and coach to get an edge on the competition. And we're about to share many of those shooting tips and secrets with you.
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.
I don't want to belabor the point... But I do want to be clear as a bell that shooting the basketball is one of the most important things for any coach or player to master.
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
We have found that many of the basketball shooting DVDs, books, and programs on the market have great information. In fact, we highly recommend a few of them. But all the products seem to be missing a little something here and there. Some were complicated, some gave conflicting advice, some neglected shooting workouts, some left out advice for coaches, and so on.
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.
Not to mention, we have our own 20 years of first-hand experience playing, coaching, and teaching shooting skills.
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.
Here are the six shooting coaches that we interviewed:

Deanna Bradley from St. Mary of the Woods, IN says: 9/9/2008 at 9:59:32 AM
The shooting guide is quite good, especially for those dealing with youth, inexperienced players, or even those at the college level who need work on their fundamentals. We all deal with 'common' errors in shooting with our athletes, and this guide helps not only to identify and recognize the problem, but also provide simple avenues of correction at all levels.
I found the explanation and diagrams of the drills easy to follow. I will be incorporating many of them labeled Junior High+ into my practices at the college level. I'm VERY PICKY about the drills I use because I believe you need to incorporate conditioning along with the drills for equal success throughout the game. Everything needs to be game like once they have the proper technique. This guide provides drills that cover many 'repetition' drills as well as game situation drills, both 1/2 and full court.
I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to take the time to teach their players proper technique for shooting, and to become a better shooting team with the drills involved. I
Stan Shrader from Knoxville, TN says: 9/9/2008 at 11:09:16 AM
Excellent drills for high school and jr. high teams. Using these drills to improved scoring and the kids seem to respond. I'm always looking for different drills/methods to accomplish a goal so the kids won't get bored doing the same thing over and over. This guide gives many good drills and each is well explained and diagrammed.
fr. leonido c. dolor from Lipa City, Philippines says: 9/9/2008 at 6:31:16 PM
The compendium on shooting is definitely a big help to young coaches (and players, of course). It boosts their confidence in what they are trying to impart on kids who would rather imitate what they see among their idols, without realizing that their idols were started with the basics of shooting before they managed to come up with their own brand of shooting.
The books themselves are useful for their accompanying visuals, aside from the easy-to-follow instructions. What else could a coach ask for?
gary fraser from melbourne, victoria says: 9/9/2008 at 7:04:15 PM
another excellent video,particulary liked the inside pivot shooting drill off the chair which will improve footwork and squaring up to the basket. all of these shooting drills in some way or another must improve your teams overall shooting ability when taught properly. can be taught to players of all ages and skill level. another fine product and remembering it was free good to see you rewarding loyal patronage. thanks guys . cheers gary fraser braybrook victoria australia.
David from Kalispell, MT says: 9/10/2008 at 5:37:34 PM
I really liked the pictures that accompanied the instruction. This helps visualize the setup or cause of a missed shot. This really helped me in communicating the corrections that were needed to make them a better shooter. I enjoyed the variety of drills that help teach players the shots to be used in games. These drills will make my team much more difficult to defend and open up more oppurtunities for each player.
chris Hart from Brookings, OR says: 9/11/2008 at 1:08:35 PM
I thought it was great. It explained how to shoot the basketball very well. I learned alot more about how to teach someone how to shoot the basketballball. I use what I have learned with my daughter and her shot is coming along very well. I have her useing the individual shooting drills and I have been charting her progress. I would of never of thought of that with out the e-book. great job, thanks
Steve from Valparaiso, IN says: 9/16/2008 at 7:51:39 PM
Most of the book is quite good. There were some parts that I need to reread but for the most part, I found very little that I can't use.
The team I coached last year didn't have any confidence in their shot and it was frustrating watching some of our games. I will use many of the tips and teaching aids on them this year. Also, I'm thinking of holding a shooting camp during the offseason. I plan to use many of the techniques described in the book to make them better shooters.
Carlos Lopez from Pueblo , CO says: 4/19/2011 at 3:28:49 PM
I especially liked the section on how to maintain confidence using verb age that changes the way a shooter should be self talking to themselves.
The author was straight up when saying that a lot of the material was a combined effort of assorted videos and instruction from top shooting coaches. I just wished that this book was available before I purchased thousand of dollar of video to get what you will be receiving from all the info provided. You will not only save money but time (All the research is done for you).
As spending a large amount of money on basketball videos and materials, I found the e-book to be a great asset to my collection.
Donay from charlotte, NC says: 4/19/2011 at 8:32:38 PM
I found this e-book to be excellent. I love the variety of workouts that are provided for the athlete. The drills and explanations are excellent. The different books give you a great resource to improve your coaching and the athlete
This e-book was an EXCELLENT purchase. I expect I will use it for a long long time!
It gives step by step instruction on how to teach shooting in an understandable way.
The improvement in my teams' shooting increased EXPONENTIALLY due to the concepts I learned and applied from this e-book.
The trick was to keep it simple and "actually apply" the knowledge it shared.
Just to give you an idea, my own twin Daugthers recently left our Province (Newfoundland, Canada) for a high level tournament. They are 13 and competed at the 15 year old age. One twin won the three point competition and the other was second in the free throw contest. Our team was by far the best shooting team at the tournament.
The season before, at 12 years old competing in the 15 year old division, at the same tournament one of the twins shot approximately 38% from the three point line and hit eighteen threes in six games and we NEVER practice three point shooting. Actually, all the the team can knock 'em down!
More importantly, I learned how to teach the mental side of shooting to the athletes such as how to handle it when they miss.
For example, one of the girls I coach had a tough shooting game during a travel tourney and was only two for seven from the three point line. However, they were good shooting choices that just didn't go down. She knew how to handle it and had the confidence to shoot two three pointers in the last 15 seconds (she hit them both) and put us within a point in a tight game. She ended up shooting 4 for 9 (44%).
Without this e-book I would not have been able to teach her the mental side of shooting and she would have stopped shooting after she missed a few.
In particular, the charting technique taught in the e-book was critical in developing my teams' "supreme shooting confidence."
Again, a great resource. Buy it!
Mark Baker - Director & Head Coach The Basketball Academy Conception Bay South Youth Basketball Newfoundland, Canada
The shooting guide, drills and practice plans were excellent. Great fundamental tips and organizational structure that allows coaches to help their players and players help themselves. I'm looking forward to using and applying with my team soon.
Steve Swartzendruber from Paonia, CO says: 9/9/2008 at 10:51:19 AM
Haven't finished looking through all of the information yet, but what I have reviewed is excellent information and drills for my High School team. Will be passing some of the information and drills down to our Jr. High coaches and Pee Wee program.
Jose Cardenas from Los Angeles, CA says: 9/9/2008 at 11:16:53 AM
Excellent drills for youth of all ages who are trying to improve their shooting. I've tried this on my travel ball team and I have seen the kids shoot more accurate. It also helped with their confidence level.
Dave Fredrickson from Shorewood, MN says: 9/9/2008 at 11:48:54 AM
Still working through all the information provided, but what I have seen so far is excellent. I am a girls basketball coach at the youth level, young players require & need a great deal of fundementals teaching. Your books is a great guide to help mix up the drills and provide a great variety of teaching techniques that all of my players will be able to relate to, we will use your book all winter during the travel season.
Since I only started my practice this week, I hadn't time yet to try any of the exercises, but since there are some of them that I didn't know yet which should be easy to do even with quite young kids, I'm shure, that I shall use lots of it.
Michael Newham from ASHTONFIELD, NSW says: 9/9/2008 at 5:59:03 PM
This is helping the team I coach greatly. Shootting has never been a strong point in our association and this is giving my team the edge. Great product. Keep up the good work for us in Australia. Regards. Michael Newham
Excellent drills for youth of all ages who are trying to improve their shooting. I've tried this on my travel ball team and I have seen the kids shoot more accurate. It also helped with their confidence level.
Eddy Rillaerts from Kontich, Antwerpen says: 9/10/2008 at 5:11:30 AM
Very clear and and an excellent guide to teach shooting. I've used the principles already in my practice. The inclusion of some video material concer- ning shooting completes this great product. Thanks al lot, Greatings from Belgium, Eddy
Alex - West Lakes Academy England from Egremont, Cumbria says: 9/10/2008 at 9:46:43 AM
An excellent 'no-bull' guide to shooting which has made it a lot easier to plan practice sessions. I particularly like the breakdown of technique and mental focus sections. Looking forward to more guides - passing etc.
KEITH E STARR from Henderson, NV says: 9/11/2008 at 9:04:10 AM
I was very much impressed with the areas of concern in the shooting technique and the ways to correct the problems. I am so happy to have ordered the E-Book so I can keep it on file and go back to it often. I never heard about the techniques of coming out of a slump. I hope I never have to use it with my players, but we all know I will, but I am eager to find out if it works.
wayne from WOODSTOCK, GA says: 9/16/2008 at 3:39:15 PM
Since I work with younger girls, the tips and the material have helped me to better explain to the kids the points that I want to make. Our team finished 5th in the nation last year, and I think that with a lot of hard work useing some of the material in this, we will improve our shooting. Great job on putting this togather,
David Axford from Warragul, VIC says: 11/18/2008 at 4:45:00 AM
I thought it was a comprehensive review of shooting fundamentals and reinforced a lot of what I believe shooting is about. I will definitely use some of the shooting drills with the junior squad team I coach. A great and essential resource for basketball coaches. Well done!
Colin from Apperley Bridge, West Yorkshire says: 2/26/2009 at 3:54:27 PM
An excellent resource and have implemented many of the drills and used the videos with my high school senior team, and it has helped incerase the points per game. The guys are now starting to have more confidence in themselves as well, which helps a lot!! Thanks heaps for the help and guidance!
Larry Knutson from Waltham, MA says: 4/13/2009 at 11:02:49 AM
As usual with your products, I found many helpful concepts and ideas. I conduct a very detailed shooting clinic and I was able to use several things from this offering in addition to my material. I love your attention to detail, from the very basics, to the mental and visualization techniques required to master this skill. Well done!!!
Rados from Toronto, Ontario says: 4/13/2009 at 5:25:04 PM
Haven't finished looking through all of the information yet, but what I have reviewed is excellent information. There are some of the drills that I didn't know yet which should be easy to do even with quite young kids, I'm shure, that I shall use lots of it.
I am very impressed. In only a few weeks I have seen great improvements in my own children as well as in the 3rd graders, 4th graders, 6th graders and 8th graders that I coach. They are really improving every day. I wish I would have had a coach when I was a young boy who had this program. I can't wait until next game season rolls around, I believe I will see incredible improvements in all of my teams shooting percentages.
Stoney Hiljus from Cambridge, MN says: 4/14/2009 at 9:41:28 AM
The shooting guide is excellent. I am the parent of a 7th grader and coach my son's travel basketball team. The season is over but I've started using the drills with my son in the driveway. His shooting percentage on the drills is already improving and his form has improved. It certainly helps to have the guide re-inforce what I've been trying to get him to do all season. He has even picked up the guide and is reading it and I see him implementing the drills when he is outside shooting. I am a big fan!
Jason Lewis Basile Louisiana from Basile, LA says: 4/14/2009 at 10:07:46 PM
I think it is a great product. I am implementing some of the shooting tips with my son and I see a major improvement in his shot. I really learned alot from this product. I can not wait to put it in with my high school team.
Romaro Smith from Durham , NC says: 4/19/2011 at 10:15:39 PM
I find this e-book to be very helpful. It has helped me to simplify my work outs for all my youth groups. (ages 5-12) I love the sample workouts provided. Anyone involved in youth basketball will find the Shooting Guide as a great resource.
Maxim Yap from Gadong, None says: 4/21/2011 at 2:53:26 AM
This e-book has helped me tremendously! I coach Youth Basketball, as well as National Basketball as an assistant. The compilation of data, drills, analyses, goals, etc was superb! Definitely highly recommended for all levels of basketball coaching, as well as for players to build up their knowledge base.
Darrell Alexander from St. Louis, MO from Florissant, MO says: 5/14/2011 at 1:01:01 PM
Excellent drills for youth of all ages who are trying to improve their shooting. I'm using this with a few players on my High School team and I'm seeing their shooting improve and their confidence increasing.

I had never coached basketball and had not played much in the last 45 years (I am 68). Due to some unfortunate timing I had to take over as coach of a Christian middle school boys basketball team for 1 year. I ordered this shooting program to make sure I was up to date on the latest shooting wisdom. I was extremely pleased with the training information provided in the material, especially the 5 interviews. Thanks to this shooting guidance I can have a clear conscience about having provided the players I coached with the best shooting practice advise for their current and future development. Thanks.

These e-books are wonderful! I found them easy to understand and follow. These helped me out in my first year of coaching and I've kept them in my coaching binder to refer back to each season. I have even suggested to other coaches to get on the website and order the e-books.

Great books on the philosophy of shooting. I do not like to change the kids' shooting form during the season, and these books are great to give the kids after the season so they can get themselves ready for the next year. Very easy to read and understand as a coach and as players.

Great to have references and extra drills for the different age groups, All the drills fit well into my practices and and gives a wide variety to keep the girls moving. Shooting has to be one of your top skills to emphasize at the basics level.

A very good resource that backs up some of the fundamentals I currently use and expanded a bit more with some of the mental side of shooitng. Great information and a resource that can be used across multiple ranges of players.

I have read through all the material and plan to do so again in order to condense and put together a teaching plan. Very comprehensive and well put together. I do not like to change or alter kids shots during season, but their were some good points related to minor adjustments which I found useful and could be used during the season, especially related to arc. Would definitely recommend this product, especially to new coaches.
This is a great package. I was looking for something for my 11-year-old son to practise and develop his shooting over the off-season. The written material is excellent and the detail on fundamentals and good shooting form is exactly what I was looking for.
The only reason for four stars is that one of the interviews (Danny Miles) is such poor audio quality that I couldnt listen to it. The others are excellent and have really useful content. You can see how the interview content is used in the materials and that gives reassurance that the package is based on really sound ideas.
In three days of training using these materials my sons shot accuracy is already improving!
