fundamentals and constant practice that championships are won."
Dr. James Naismith, The Inventor of Basketball
Since basketball was invented players have
had the desire to become better at the game. Some players understand
the importance of the perimeter game and shooting the basketball and have
worked to develop their shooting capacity. These would-be shooters
work countless hours hammering fundamental principles without truly understanding
what they are executing due to limited visual feedback that is given from
a brown or orange basketball.
Players call out release, rotation, and follow-through without truly understanding
what influence they are having on the ball. These players, through
sheer determination, lock into these principles, however, without true
knowledge and understanding of these principle fundamental components a
players results are "hit" or "miss." At this point the only way a
player can measure his/her successful is if the ball goes in the basket.
However, this form of feedback only helps a chosen few and does not provide
all shooters with the information needed to make the required adjustments
to receive the desired result of more made baskets. To provide greater
assistance to the shooter he/she needs a visual aid to help him/her identify
what is taking place when the ball is released. A traditional basketball
does not provide such feedback. That is why “The Shooting Coach”
was invented. Invented and developed by the Fundamentals
Basketball Academy "The Shooting Coach" is a basketball shooting training
aid with a patented shooting method designed to help a player visually
read his or her current shot release and rotation with every release of
the ball. This training aid takes the fundamental elements of shooting
the basketball and provides an avenue for the shooter to ensure immediate
visual feedback each time the ball is released until the desired result
of more made baskets is achieved.
"THE SHOOTING COACH". . . IT STARTS WITH FUNDAMENTALS!!!
How "The Shooting Coach" was developed and how it works:
Please note: The information listed is about developing a player that has the capacity to shoot the basketball in any given situation. When we shot the basketball we are talking about more than just standing there and catching the ball and shooting it in the basket. Players that can do it all are rare and valuable. Interested, then please continue to read on . . . . . .
Practicing to acquire a skill is most effective if a proper technique is properly executed numerous times. Among other things, practice strengthens required or useful muscles. Practice also creates control. However, practicing a wrong technique or executing a technique improperly teaches wrong technique and is counter-productive. In fact, bad practice may be worse than no practice. Poor practice limits an athlete’s ability to perform or to improve in any sport or activity.
Practice should employ proper technique for each basketball shot. There have been many "how-to" books and manuals written about learning how to play the game of basketball and proper form and technique in shooting the basketball. However, such writings fail to include means for ensuring that the technique employed by the athlete is proper and consistent with the writings’ instructions. When shooting the basketball, in order to control the shot with repeated, identical, correct, and habitual positioning and movement, immediate feedback is needed for the athlete to be aware of whether the balls flight and rotation is proper. Such immediate feedback immediately informs the player as to whether the shooting technique was properly executed. With proper technique, properly executed, the technique becomes habit, even reflex, resulting in the desired result of a made basket.
