Impact’s Winter Skills Tune-Up Basketball Camp is for players that would like to stay “game ready” during their high school and middle school seasons. The Winter Tune-Up Camp is also a great tool for players to stay in shape for their AAU season.
This basketball camp will work on ball-handling, guard skills and post skill techniques and shooting, as well advance move techniques.
Campers will participate in one hour of skills & drills and one hour of control scrimmaging against man-to-man defense and zone defense. Learning these skills will show players when to attack or when to setup into team offense or formations.
FEBRUARY SHOOTING & MOVEMENT CAMP
4th - 9th Grade
First 2 Saturdays in February 2pm to 4pm.
First, in this basketball camp, we cover the basic hand placement of the shooting hand and the guide hand. This will be the same for the vast majority of our shooters. There are a few variances for special needs athletes. (For example, if one player has a different angle to his wrist, we will slightly change his/her hand placement.)
Shooting pocket is the point from where a shot is started. The player's shooting pocket will vary depending on their age, skill level, and strength
Alignment may very well be the single most important part of the shot. Assuming our shooter has established a good center of gravity, their hand, and most importantly, their elbow, must be aligned with their shoulder, which must be square to the basket. Our younger athletes tend to lack the necessary upper body strength to keep the elbow properly aligned on outside shots. However, they can have proper alignment when working on their form and while "form shooting". This is the goal of this part of our February basketball camp.
The release point is that point at which the shooter releases the ball. An improper release point is one of the reasons the ball will have little to no rotation. We'll work on this during the camp.
Follow Through with proper forearm and hand techniques will be covered in our February basketball camp. This is what causes the ball to have great rotation. Proper rotation is what will cause the basketball to have proper angle to grab the backboard or rim and look like a great shot. This is done by proper shooting drills with homework assignments. A good shooter must have Balance, eye contact with rim, elbow position and follow through.
Footwork skills will be honed, such as moving into your shot off the dribbling, proper Jump Stop as well as turnaround Jump shots.
