Conditions for Change

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The following is a low level reproduction of my notes that will hopefully lead to a book someday. Pictures are not available yet. Conditions for Change Three conditions should exist for the player to produce positive change. 1. The player must be willing to change 2. There needs to be a period when the player can accept taking a step backward. 3. There must be constant feedback between the teacher and player. The Willing Student The biggest obstacle to change is accepting that change is necessary. We make our decisions based on how they affect us in terms of pain and pleasure. Does the perceived pleasure of a new, more effective shot outweigh the pain of change? In the case of shot change, the player must deal with an ego that has told the player that he doesn't need to change. He also must be willing to take a step backwards as a shooter. This is hard when there is an ego to support. In the lessons I give, I charge a fee. When someone is willing to pay a fee for change, they are showing a level of commitment. A coach or parent would hope the player approaches them about wanting change. Good luck, when trying to help a player that isn't interested in change. I have had many students that were not as motivated to change as their parents wanted them to be. I needed to get results quickly or I would lose them. By getting the player to see more pleasure in change, you can prepare him for instruction. Try talking about goals. How many free throws out of one hundred does he want to make? What kind of shooting percentage does he want? Does she want to be a starter, a star player, a three-point threat, or maybe a player at the next level. If you can push the right button, you will have a much more receptive student. ...read more.

Use the following as your tests: 1. Longest Streak The student shoots alone at one basket for 5 minutes. All shots are between 10-14 feet. Start with the ball under the basket. Flip the ball with some back spin into the shooting range. Run to the ball, grab it, pivot to the basket, and shoot. Rebound the shot, flip it to another area and repeat. Keep track of your longest consecutive streak of made baskets. At the end of 5 minutes, your longest streak is your score. 2. Free Throws The student shoots 25 free throws with a rebounder. Record the number of made shots. The free throw line should be selected relative to the size of the shooter. 3. Lay Ups The student shoots 5 lay ups from the right side using the right hand to shoot. Next, the student shoots 5 lay ups from the left side using the left hand to shoot. Each lay up should be preceded by at least two dribbles with the corresponding hand (left on left side). Record the results separately. Pre-Test Post-Test +/- Longest Streak 5 Min Free Throws 25 Right Lay Ups 5 Left Lay Ups 5 Lesson #1 Shot Build Up Red Block 1. Start the lesson with the student standing on the first lane block (about 4 feet at a 45-degree angle) 2.Help the student into the shooting position with the backboard as the target. 1.Start with the feet pointing at the target. Explain why this is important. 2.Next work on the "shot pocket". The ball should be placed comfortably on spread fingers. Show how the shooting line goes through the right foot, knee, right elbow, shoulder hand and ball. 3.At this point, only the right hand should be holding the ball. The student should be able to balance the ball easily in the right hand. Use a smaller ball if this is not possible. ...read more.

Conclusion

Have shooter focus on the shooting line. Provide feedback until the shooter can set up correctly. Feet may be pointed left of the target. Ball follows shoulders. Shoulders follow feet. Do drills that focus the shooters attention on the square up. Misses consistently to the right. Elbow may be out of line to the inside. Have shooter focus on the shooting line. Provide feedback until the shooter can set up correctly. Feet may be pointed right of the target. Ball follows shoulders. Shoulders follow feet. Do drills that focus the shooters attention on the square up. Misses are usually side to side. No dominate side. Look for left hand interference. May be slight. Have the shooter try using the index finger on the left hand as the only part of the support hand touching the ball. Do this until the shooter is confident that the left hand can hold the ball without pushing. Result Problem Remedy Misses are straight but are hitting the front or back rim. Check the arch. Probably too low Have the shooter shoot with more arch than they feel is comfortable. When they are shooting at the right arch, let them know and try to get them to learn the feel of the new arch. Misses even though shooting line is intact. Check for balance. Does the shooter lean during release or need to regain balance after follow through? Have shooter focus on good base and balanced upward, inward movement. Drill until shooter can identify and control. Targeting. Ask the shooter about their target for each shot. Watch the eyes. Are they fixed on the target or do they follow the ball? Help the shooter develop targeting habits by frequently asking them about target. Create a drill where the shooter only focuses on target while shooting. Hand/ball contact may need to be checked. Make sure fingers are spread and that the ball rests in the hand instead of being on finger tips. Have shooter focus on last release point. Should feel contact with middle or index finger, whichever is the chosen release finger. ...read more.
