- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$150 - 90 Minute session.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Shooting Instruction Session: Your introduction to my shooting method involves your total participation. You learn by DOING! 1. We begin with an assessment of your original shot as you will shoot 10 shots from 4 spots on the floor (40 shots total). We will record this benchmark and its results to measure your progress before and after ACES. 2. As training begins, I step you through the fundamentals of "The ACE Shooting Method" using exclusive and proprietary properties that include: - The 25 Basic Principles for Mastering the Jump Shot - The 7 Essential Keys for Controlling the Jump Shot - The Dynamics of the Shot Pocket 3. We start from the bottom and work our way up. Starting with the base, I guide you through various positions and techniques used in "The ACES Method" that impact the feet, legs, hips, back, shoulders, arms, hands, shot pocket, shooting motion, release, body synchronization, follow through, etc. 4. Next, we begin to apply these new mechanics with repetitions of shooting from designated positions on the court. Modifications and corrections usually take place at this time, but repetitions are crucial when learning something new. How quickly one adopts and locks in the ACES Stroke depends entirely upon the individual. 5. If necessary, we might need to utilize the Pocket Pointer, a proprietary device I invented. The Pocket Pointer is an extremely effective tool that neutralizes the old shot's "muscle memory" and accelerates learning of the ACES. 6. At some point in the lesson, you should be able to demonstrate how to make shots with your eyes closed using ACES. This is an indication that you are reaching a comfort level with your new shooting stroke. 7. We also might include some light weight training in our training regimen to strengthen the muscles groups needed to support the ACES Stroke. 8. Other unique offensive drills designed by The Shot Guru are incorporated that include: dribbling (with both hands); the "Iron Bar Drill", mastering moves off the dribble; exploding to the hole and others. This lays a foundation for some of the more advanced shooting skills such as creating your own shot. 9. Defensive training is also featured in my player development program. Playing pressure man-to man defense requires conditioning (preparation), skill (knowledge) and heart (determination). Players are trained in maintaining a good defensive base, how to move their feet, how to improve lateral movement, just to name a few. Defense provides players with a comprehensive skill set that increases their value and confidence. 10. We generally close most sessions with free throw shooting to simulate game conditions. When players are tired, the ability to focus on the mechanics of ACES really comes into play. 11. Once you can demonstrate a command of your new ACES Stroke, we use the benchmark from your original shot that we recorded in your first session to assess your improvement before and after ACES. You will again shoot 10 shots from the same 4 spots on the floor, using your new ACES Stroke. When this takes place depends entirely upon the progress of the individual player. Time permitting, players can expect a very extensive workout. It is recommended that the first session be at least 2 hours so a thorough evaluation and introduction to ACES can be completed.
