3 C’s of Shooting
First thing a good shooter must do is to create a standard of personal excellence. 8 out of 10 or better is the Watts Basketball standard. We want you to make 80% of your shots consistently in drills at game speed in game situations. You must work to this standard consistently developing your range and arsenal.
Range= 8 out of 10
Arsenal = Creative shots you can make within your range in game speed situations.
To achieve this standard, the 3 C’s of Shooting and Development are critical.
Consistency works in 2 layers:
1. Execution of shot and training your shot. Training your shot by practicing and doing your shot over and over to develop the brain connection of consistent movement. People often refer to this as muscle memory.
2. Making a commitment to consistent daily routines that compounds the efforts of daily movement.
Concentration at Watts basketball means focusing on elements of your shot not specific results of making a basket. You must knowingly my a commitment to this type of focus because what you focus on is what you bring attention to. We want to focus on shots that have a perfect feel and rhythm. It is alright to have a long goal of making a certain number of shots, but we do not want to obsess over it every day. Instead, we want to establish goals and milestones you can track and see steady improvement towards your 60 / 90 day goals.
Confidence at Watts Basketball means following the process will lead to not only confidence, but Supreme Confidence. This is knowing when called on in the most high impact, high intensity situation you will come through. This is confidence in yourself plus your teammates and coaches having confidence you can and will come through in clutch situations.
Following the Watts Basketball process will develop this Supreme Confidence in yourself.
