CREATING PRESSURE SHOTS IN PRACTICE

"Anyone can develop the proper shot mechanics, given just minimal amount of athletic ability. The key to shooting, however is not just the mechanics, but being able to utilize proper shot mechanics under pressure. One fo the most important things that a coach can do is develop situations where pressure exists in all shooting work. The atmosphere surrounding a game producdes its own pressures and tension for all of the players involved. We as coaches have to devise substitute pressures in practice for our players to be able to perform at maximum efficiency under the pressures of game play. In no area is this factor more important than in the development of good shooting."
