Diversify your Shooting with Kyler Edwardsby Kyler Edwards
The most significant area of shooting that is disregarded when practicing is creating the space to get a shot off. To become an elite shooter, you need to perfect all the elements before releasing the ball. In this course, we will not only talk about shooting technique and mechanics but also the 10% that none of your competitors are working on that will allow you the space to take the shot.
To do this, we will cover:
- Working at the rim and layups.
- Long and mid-range shooting.
- Footwork combinations and body movements to evade defenders
- ...And more.
