There are two crucial things that build a great shooter. One is form and two is repetition. One without the other is meaningless for improvement. Not every shooter needs to have the same exact form, but there are some pretty definitive pieces that make up a ‘good shot’.
Once you have your form correct, then you need to gain repetition in that form with a lot of practice. Countless shots. Fall in love with the detail of your shot and the quest to perfect it with each good rep you take. The key here is to rep good shots with good form, as your skill will only get better with good shots, and only get worse with poor form or casual shots.
Form shooting close to the goal will help players grow comfortable and consistent with their form (from 3ft all the way out to the FT line, depending on age/strength). Do this every workout! And as you move around and shoot game shots to build repetition, stay in a range where your form is still true. Young players often want to shoot 3’s before they are strong enough and they develop bad habits. Building your shot as a young player is a lot like saving for retirement…the sooner you start investing (in good form with high reps), the much better chance you have of becoming a millionaire by 65!
