UNDERSTANDING YOUR SHOT AND BECOMING YOUR OWN BEST COACH

December 13, 2011


Becoming a better shooter takes self-discipline, hard work, and correct practice. Most of the time you will be practicing alone without a coach to help you. Learning to understand your own shot and become your own best coach will help you practice correctly and improve. Here are some tips to help you do this:

Have confidence in yourself. Always start with what you are doing well.
Ask yourself, "When I am shooting well, what am I doing?"
There is no wrong answer to this question. It simply gives an indication of your confidence level and what you know about your own shot.
If you respond with the answer "I just shoot," this may indicate that you have confidence and that you are not over thinking when you shoot.
If your answer is "When I'm shooting well, my hand is going straight toward the basket," then you have an idea of what you want to do when shooting.
Tell yourself, "I want to shoot with confidence and rhythm. I want to focus on the one mechanic that helps my shot the most. I want to learn to coach myself." Select two or three one-syllable key words that you associate with what you want to do.

Keep it simple. Too much thinking causes paralysis by analysis. Shooting should be smooth, free flowing, and rhythmical.
Your key words are short, concise, and positive. Say your words with confidence and rhythm from the start of your shot to the release of the ball.

Be positive. Eliminate thinking about the shot or shots that you missed. Negative thinking distracts you. It makes you tense. It causes you to lose your confidence. When you miss a shot, immediately correct it with a positive key word that you associate with making the shot. Visualize a good shot and always act as if you made it. Act like a shooter!

Strive to keep your confidence level high. Keep reminding yourself that you can and will achieve your goals. Motivate yourself to consistently do what it takes to reach your goals. Commit to daily, specific, measurable goal setting and correct practice. Commitment fosters confidence. Never think for one moment that you will have anything less than success.

Constantly tell yourself, "I am a shooter!"

Be enthusiastic, energized, and tenacious to inspire yourself to reach new heights. This will also inspire your team.

Above all, make it enjoyable! You become a better player when you have high spirits, a bright smile, and a sense of humor.

PANTHERS PREPARE FOR ENGLAND CALL

March 16, 2011

Since Nov 2010 Oxford HOOPS junior girls have been invited to represent Oxford in the Southern Region APC (Area Performance Centre). Unfortunately the APC is on the last Sunday of every month and Coaches have been too involved with other games and game preparation, leaving them unable to take the girls to APC in Southampton.

Finally in February Coach Marulanda took 6 girls to their first APC and they had a great time, as well as competing at every stage and did OXFORD HOOPS proud. APC Head Coach CJ Lee has been in close contact with HOOPS Head Coach Franky Marulanda ever since.

There are rumours that Coach CJ is talking to Coach Marulanda about coaching at the APC. We'll see what develops.

The girls: Sofie Nissen (13), Hannah Grieve (13), Emma Roby (14), Megan Gold-Blyth (14), Katie Fleming (14) and Sofia Marulanda (14).

This is a great advert for the BASKETBALL SCHOOL of EXCELLENCE (Oxford City), The Coaching Staff and of course St Gregory the Great School who have supported this initiative over the last 8 months. Without them, we would not have any girls potentially representing England next year.

Thank you all !

ENGLAND SCOUTS CALL UPON OXHOOPS JUNIORS

January 8, 2011

ENGLAND BASKETBALL RUMOURS ...

Oxford HOOPS has been informed that apparently ENGLAND SCOUTS have called upon 3 of our best Junior Players to try-out for England. "Although HOOPS does not currently have any teams in the National League, the way the Club seems to prepare players is paying off." Chairman Peter Egawhary

Amir Courkhalag, Louis Goodgame and Jordan Higgins have been requested to turn up for the try-outs in Birmingham later in the year. Some of our U15 girls will also be attending the Area Performance Centre in Southampton to see if they are able to make the trials too.

"These guys have been working on their game so hard for the last 12 months that it has shown. I moved them up to the Men League and even Louis is playing with Braves as starting 5. They have a lot more work to do, but just to be called upon is an honour. I am still awaiting firm confirmation of this before I celebrate for real." Coach Franky Marulanda

"We are still working on some of the younger ones as we believe we have a few more England candidates to follow, HOOPS has without doubt the best junior development programme around. The programme, together with the extra work offered by Player/Coaches like Amir Boucenna, Joe Wells and even NCAA Harvard Star Maxi Kenyi makes a huge difference to the overall development and basketball IQ for the juniors. I am so grateful and proud to have them with the Club." Coach Franky Marulanda

We will keep you informed.
