RICK TORBETT: BUILDING A GREAT SHOOTING PROGRAM

Reviewing some old notes from a PGC/Glazier Clinic I attend.  Here are some gems from Rick Torbett, founder of www.BetterBasketball.com:

8 Secrets to Training:

Preparation
Repetition
Attitude
Concentration
Technique
Intensity
Conditioning
Expectations

Can't create time...have to give things up.

If you want to be exceptional, you can't be normal.

Don't shoot to get in shape -- get in shape to shoot.

Ready -- get hands right
Set -- knee bend
Fire -- breaking of wrists w/feet leaving the ground
Post -- follow through...both arms

"Catch the rim between your wrists."

Eliminate excessive motion to increase accuracy.

"Pivot square up the most important thing in shooting." -Steve Alford

Train your vision.

Mel Gibson in "Patriots" -- "Aim small, miss small"

Aim at center loop

Concentrate so hard you get a headache.

Concentrate on straight -- don't worry about long & short

Train to ignore closeouts and fly byes
