2 Deadly Girls Basketball Shooting Mistakes

I have been involved in girls basketball for quite a while. As I watch girls basketball, it is hard for me to look at a game for pure entertainment. I am always looking at the little things like does a young lady get in triple threat, are the teams running plays, and the attitude of players. I especially look at the way a young lady shoots the basketball. Here are 2 deadly mistakes players make in shooting the basketball.

Wrong Attitude

The first mistake a player makes in shooting a basketball comes before they even shoot the ball. They don't believe in their ability to shoot. They run through their head over and over and over again such thoughts--

"I am not a great shooter.

"I can't shoot 3s."

I worked with a young lady during a training session and she told me that she could not shoot 3s. I had her go through a series of shooting which were only 3s and she knocked down the majority of the shots. But this young lady had just told me and more than once that she could not make 3 pointers.

You are what you think about. If you think you can't do something, you won't even try to do it. Which leads me to the other deadly mistake.

Not Working Extra

If you already have in your mind that you can not do something, you probably will not even work on it. This is the complete opposite of what you should be doing.

Get in the gym and work on shooting the basketball. It is the only way you will get better at shooting.
