What is the Pro Shot Shooting System?
We get asked constantly by players, trainers, parents and coaches, “What is Pro Shot?” Why is it different than most shooting programs?”
The Pro Shot Shooting System is a self-correcting shooting program based on biomechanics and focusing. The System is based on problem solving. The three steps to becoming a good shooting are as follows:
1) Identify the direction you are missing
2) Figure out why you are missing
3) FIX IT!!!!
Most high school and middle school players struggle with shooting. Most high school and middle school teams struggle with shooting. We ask coaches constantly, “What is your biggest problem that your team has on the court?” The answer is almost always, “We struggle to score” which always means, “We can’t shoot.”
In the past 20 years the Pro Shot Staff has researched the jump shot like no other organization. We have spoken to great shooters and coaches. We have broken down video frame by frame to determine how the best shooters actually shoot the ball. I know that I am in the infamous 10,000 hour club in regards to breaking down the jump shot.
Here is what we have discovered. No two jump shots are the same. A jump shot is like a finger print. It is impossible to have two players shoot exactly the same. We also believe there is no such thing as the “perfect” jump shot. We hear that all the time. What a bunch of hog wash.
What we have learned is that great shooters generally possess four shooting components on each and every shot. They are: a quality release, body alignment to the basket (hip, shoulder, elbow and release to the basket), a dip when shooting off of the pass (for rhythm and power) and great arc (which is dominated by extension and swaying the shooting shoulder back).
This is how the shooting greats of the past shot (Maravich, Jordan, Kerr, Mullin), the shooting greats of today (Kobe, Durant, Curry, Korver, Redick) and the best women shooters (Katie Smith, Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore. Elena Delle Donne). There will always be a few outliers that possess 2 or 3 of the four qualities, but usually they are few and far between.
With Pro Shot you love our System or hate our System. There’s usually no in between. Yesterday I was speaking with my friend Dean Lockwood from the University of Tennessee womens program and he remarked, “I don’t know how anyone can disagree with you. You have done the research. You have video proof. It is how the best shooter’s shoot.”
We wish more coaches that were as accepting as Coach Lockwood. Unfortunately many live with the belief that “those players are professional players. They can break the rules in shooting. My players need to square up AND land squared up, start your shot high and never bring it down, land in the same spot as they started, and shoot in a nice wide stance.” So how is that working for your players? How were your shooting numbers last year?
Last year we had had multiple high school teams shoot between 40-45% from the three point line. We had teams improve their field goal percentage by 10-20%. The System does work, but in anything in life you have to believe for it to work.
We give everything away for free because we truly want to change the disaster that we see everyday called shooting. Our two eBooks, “Pro Shooting Secrets” and “Coaches Handbook” are complimentary. They are easy to download and offer 200 pages of important information on shooting.
Also, check out our website (wwww.proshotsystem.com). We offer 240 instructional videos on shooting that include NBA/WNBA player breakdowns, drills, Ten Shooting Lies and the mental side to shooting series. There are 23 hours of video content on the website.
Lastly, if you would like to host a 3-4 hour camp at your gym for your program, please let us know. Pro Shot will travel to all 50 States (we have a camp in Alaska in September). Our camps/clinics are affordable and we offer a money back guarantee. We 100% guarantee that there is a not any better shooting instruction in North America than the Pro Shot System.
We hope you check out our information with an open mind. We have a saying at Pro Shot: “Seeing is believing.” If you watch the videos and read the eBooks, you will truly believe in the Pro Shot Shooting System.
