Shooting/Dribbling Classes

Shooting Classes

 

Players who make the most shots, have the most fun!

These classes break the art of shooting a basketball down to the basics and offers three unique levels for shooters of all skill levels. Each level is made up of 1 hour private sessions each one week apart (minimum). This gives students the opportunity to practice their new skills before the next session.  

Level I - Shooters are taught the fundamentals of shooting, including stance, proper hand positioning, the shooting pocket and release point, proper footwork, and the timing and rhythm needed to become a great shooter.

Level II - Students will master the jump shot and shooting on the move. A jump shot is an absolute necessity for boys over age 11 and girls over age 13. This level will prepare you to shoot in game situations and give you the moves and footwork needed to get and make open shots.

​Advanced - Shooters will master advanced moves, learn to speed up their shot, and also work from 3-point range and beyond. This level is reserved only for students who have perfected all of the techniques in Levels I and II.

All students must begin in Level I shooting. Exceptions will be made for advanced shooters at the discretion of the HCE staff. 
 

Dribbling Classes

 

Confidently handle the ball in any situation and get past defenders with ease!

This is a comprehensive dribbling program created to give basketball players the skills needed to handle the basketball on the move, get past defenders, and the confidence to handle the ball in any situation. The program is divided into two levels and each level consists of 1-hour sessions each one week apart (minimum). This gives students the opportunity to practice their new skills before the next class.

Level I - Dribblers start with the fundamentals of stationary dribbling and progress to dribbling on the move. Proper stance, the arm dribble, ways to move the ball from hand to hand, two-ball dribbling, and hand-eye coordination will all be covered. Students will also learn the difference between closed-court and open-court dribbling moves and the proper technique for each.

​Level II - Students will take the skills and moves learned in level I, and apply them to full speed, game-like situations. More advanced moves will be covered including double moves and dribblers will learn the proper way to use ball screens as well as learning to handle ball pressure and trap situations.

Advanced - Players will learn advanced combination moves, master footwork, and gain high-level knowledge in how to use pace to keep the defense off-balance. We will also focus on different scoring moves and finishes around the basket that can be used after beating a defender with the dribble. 

All students must begin in Level I dribbling. Exceptions will be made for advanced dribblers at the discretion of the HCE staff.
