Coach Sadler shares his thoughts on one of the most important factors in developing into an elite shooter...
Form shooting could possibly be one of the most important exercises that you can do as a basketball player, yet is constantly underappreciated due to its simplicity. Whether form shooting is used as part of your game prep, warm up before practice, or as part of you individual workout it is an excellent tool to use to improve shooting.
It may seem like a boring mundane task that coaches have you do at the start of practice, but it plays a much bigger part in the overall success you will have as a basketball player if done right.
When form shooting you must remember:
Form shooting shouldn’t really take up much time either. Look to shoot around 50 shots from 5 to 10 feet, facing up at the basket. Not only will this help your form improve it will also help you develop an amazing confidence from seeing the ball go in the basket over and over again.
