Videos Hide Videos Show Videos
In this video, Coach Jim Larranaga provides a comprehensive guide to improving the shooting skills of every player on your team. The video is designed to help coaches develop specific goals and habits to challenge and focus their players, and transfer practice improvements to game results.
Coach Larranaga starts by discussing the importance of developing habits when working on a player's shot, such as footwork, balance, follow through, and focus. He then proceeds to demonstrate a series of drills that work all phases of shooting, including making players better from key 3-point spots and off the dribble.
He starts with a drill called "Six in a Row" which is a simple but challenging drill that forces players to execute proper footwork while going back and forth trying to hit six shots in a row from game spots. This drill is not only a great warm-up but also a challenging drill that will help poor shooters realize they need to put in more work. He also passes on nine other great shooting drills that challenge players while giving them a great workout.
Another great aspect of Coach Larranaga's shooting workouts is how he consistently has players compete against themselves or their teammates. This competition is important to prepare players to hit big shots in big moments. In one drill, Coach Larranaga adds a defender against two shooters to force players to make good decisions while preparing to shoot. This helps players to practice shooting under pressure, which is a key skill for clutch situations in games.
This video is an excellent resource for coaches who want to improve the shooting skills of their players. Coach Larranaga provides clear and detailed instructions on how to develop specific goals and habits to challenge and focus your players, and transfer practice improvements to game results.
