One of the most important skills in basketball is shooting. This is a skill you should be building year round. What is your plan for getting in shots up during your season? Is it after practice with your coach or a teammate? Do you have a hoop at your house? Can you find gym space on the weekend?
A serious athlete that wants to be great and wants to help their team win will carve out some time each week to shoot. Track your shooting and be disciplined and efficient. Shooting after practices and on the weekend will give you more confidence in games to knock it down.
My advice: find a routine you like that offers you different lengths of time to spend working out (15 minutes, 25 minutes, and 40 minutes). Put up game speed shots from spots you are going to score on your team (be realistic!). Stick with form shooting to get your mechanics grooved, and then dive into your game speed scoring (yes, include finishes!). Don’t shy away from short workouts…making 50 or 100 shots in a short workout is much better than doing nothing!
