Blaine Youth Basketball - Boys
10,000 Shot Club
For all Boys entering grades 4-8
April 1, 2019 - September 7th, 2019
To 4th-8th Grade Bengal Youth Boys Basketball Players:
After each season, we will be challenging players from April until early September each year to join our 10,000 shot club. To become a member of our 10,000 shot club, you will need to take and record 10,000 MADE basketball game shots between through the time period mentioned above. You will need to record not only the number of shots attempted, but the shots MADE. Recording your makes gives you the opportunity to see if you are improving your efficiency.
- Write down long term goals- ex. Out of my 10,000 made shots, I will Make 500 FT’s, 40% from 3 point area, etc.
- Set a daily goal- ex. 50 Free Throws, 25 made 3’s, 25 Post moves, etc. and record them.
- Use the correct form when taking your shots. –100 quality shots is better than 1000 sloppy shots!
o Eye on Target
o Stance and Balance- Square up
o Shot pocket
o Balance Hand
o High release
o Follow through
- Shoot a variety of shots- Always start closer to the basket where you are most comfortable and move out only when ready!
- Go full speed- maximize your shooting session.
- Enjoy the process! The results will come.
Record and email your calendars to our VP or to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15th each year. We will start this program up again April 2019. In the meantime, have a great season.
If you achieve the goal of 10,000 shots you will receive a Blaine Bengal Club T- Shirt.
