Just Hoops 7

Translating your skills from practice to the game is an extremely important part of being an efficient basketball player on the court. The most productive way to make that transition is to practice how you play and practice the shots you will see during a basketball game. This is why we created the Just Hoops 7. 

The Just Hoops 7 is a workout program that consists of touch shooting, off the catch shooting, off the dribble shooting, the Weekly Challenge, drills on the Gun, and ball handling. The Just Hoops 7 will have 7 days of workouts for you to complete. Each workout will consist of 7 drills for you to work on. Every 14 days we come out with a new workout plan so athletes can add new skills to their arsenal and get out of their comfort zone. 

One thing we will always emphasize at Just Hoops is game speed. Game speed means exactly what it sounds like, practicing how you play during a game. To get the most out of the Just Hoops 7 we will always encourage everyone to go game speed on every drill.  

The Just Hoops 7 is a great workout plan for athletes who are willing to expand their game and challenge themselves. At Just Hoops we have seen that a plan and routine will lead to a more productive workout. If you have not tried the Just Hoops 7, I encourage all athletes to try this program and allow themselves to get out of their comfort zone. 

Every Just Hoops 7 will have a different quote at the top of the page, this week’s Just Hoops 7 quote is “Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character”- John Wooden

Ask Yourself Why?

“I think the biggest thing for young players now is to ask, “why”?”- Kobe Bryant 

This was Kobe’s answer when he was asked about air-balling four shots in a row during overtime in a playoff game. He explained that he asked himself why he air-balled those four shots. The answer to his “why” was “my legs were tired”. He didn’t make excuses like “it wasn’t my day” or “ I just couldn’t shoot  today” , instead he figured out what he needed to improve on. That off-season, Kobe worked on his leg strength and conditioning so that next year he could make those shots. 

The last few weeks you may have participated in tryouts for your school’s basketball team. If you didn’t make the team ask yourself “why?” If you know what your “why” was, you know what you need to work on to improve your chances of making the team next year. If you don’t know what your “why” was I know someone who does… the coach! If you are serious about wanting to make the basketball team next year, ask the coach why you didn’t make the team this year and what you can do to improve. One of the keys to improving is knowing what you need to improve on. You can improve all of your skills, but it is important to improve your weaknesses first. That way your weaknesses can catch up with your strengths.
