Shooting Topics Covered In Camp
Foundation of Shooting

- How your stance could actually be causing your shot to go left and right and how to fix it
- Why the parallel stance may not be the right fit for you
- How your legs and not just your follow through can actually cause a flat shot
- The proper release point and follow through
- How inflexibility in your legs can affect your shot in a negative way
- Learn the Steve Nash adjustment that allows players to shoot accurately from further distances
Shooting Off of the Catch Like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant

You will learn the details required to be successful with these advanced moves. If you’re not ready for the advanced moves yet, we have a system setup that will progress players at the proper rates.
