Here’s an idea if you’re coaching a youth basketball team: assign them a video clinic to take from the comfort of their home.
I was looking for an instructional video on shooting form and came across one prepared by Kansas City Basketball Training. The 10 minute video below was just what I was looking for. Using the acronym: “BEEF,” the instructor discusses fundamentals like Balance, Eye on target, Elbow in, and Follow-through. Presented in an understandable fashion, the points made by the instructor should give my players a good foundation before the next practice on basketball shooting form.
Across YouTube and other sites, there are many great instructional videos to choose from to help your team. Follow up on the key points communicated in the videos at practices to make sure your players have watched the video(s) and to reinforce concepts. It’s a great way to take advantage of all of the excellent videos available. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel — take advantage of what is already available.
