Secret to Improve Girls Basketball Skills

I watched a youtube video of Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies point guard, going through some basketball dribbling drills. This young man has some great dribbling skills.

He is dribbling the basketball in front of his body, to the side of his body, between his legs, around the back, using both hands at the same time. He can handle the basketball just as effectively with his left hand as his right hand. You can tell that he has been working on his skills for a long period of time because of how confident he looks.

In his message about the video, he describes that the video is just the beginning of his workout routine he performs EVERYDAY of the summer. The video was just the warm up. It was a very intense warm up.

How does this relate to improving girls basketball skills? Mike Conley said that the video was a part of his everyday summer workout routine. Mike Conley knows the key to improving his game and reaching his goals. He did something everyday. To improve your skills do something everyday. Or do something consistently.

I was known as a great shooter. But how did I become a great shooter? I did what Mike Conley said he did during the summer. I was consistently working on my shooting. I would practice my free throws. I would practice my 3 point shots. I would practice shooting from the corners.

Basketball Techniques That Amaze Even Professional Players

Professional basketball isn't only about who runs faster or jumps higher, it is about making the right decisions on court based on the player's game intelligence skills. An innovative technology claims to skyrocket the player's basketball techniques and game intelligence by developing his or her brain-skills.

Acquiring superior basketball techniques requires at least some basic natural born talent and a daily hard work on court and lots of it! No matter how hard you practice, how good you memorize drills, moves and work on your techniques, it all comes to the point where you need to execute it all on court, under intense pressure with minimum court time.

Basketball dribbling, shooting, moving on court while “reading” the game and executing it all precisely and effectively, is about a player’s brain-skills and game intelligence.

A team of cognitive “brain-training” scientists claim to have identified the brain-functions responsible for those skills; together with a team of leading basketball coaches they developed a unique software system that enables any basketball player, at any level, to dramatically improve his or her basketball techniques and game intelligence.

Basketball Coaching Video Game

The system was designed to feel and look like a video game, while the player is shooting spaceships and chasing the “bad guys”, it stimulates the exact brain functions required of a basketball player on court, the system analyzes the player’s performance, it spots weak points or setbacks, finally customizing a training program, tailor-made to fit that individual player.

After 6-8 weeks of “brain-training”, the player unconsciously and surprisingly executes much better on court in the areas of: decision making under pressure, improved shot selection, enhanced movement anticipation, heightened court sense and pattern recognition.
