SHOOTING outline:
Our shooting re-fresher and drills will re-inforce the B-E-E-F principles as shown below.

B – BALANCE:
1. Make sure you are "squared-up" to the basket with your feet shoulder width apart.
2. The "shooting foot" (the one on the same side as your shooting arm) slightly in front and both feet pointed towards basket. 
3. With knees slightly bent jump off both feet equally straight up & straight down from where your jump started (do not drift). 

E - ELBOW
1. Keep the elbow of your shooting arm close to your body and pointing it at the basket, no "chicken wings".
2. Proper shooting alignment; ball should be directly over the elbow with the wrist cocked, elbow pointing towards basket.
3. During the shot the elbow should come up to your eyebrow level rather than going out in front of your body. This makes sure you get plenty of lift on the ball rather than pushing it out in front of you.

E – EYES ON TARGET:
1. Keep your eyes on the target (the basket) !
2. Pick a spot (front of the rim, back of the rim, etc.) and focus hard on that target as the shot is being attempted. 
3. Don't watch the ball!

F – FOLLOW-THROUGH:
1. When you are holding the ball your wrist should be cocked in "shot pocket”.
2. Release the ball off the fingers and snap the wrist to put some backspin on the ball.  Wrist should come fully forward.
3. Keep your shooting arm up in the air for a second looking like a "gooseneck"!
4. Ball should come off pointing finger aimed at target.
