P-15 Workout: October 26, 2014

The P-15 Workout is an opportunity to get an extra 15 minutes of individual practice in before or after team practice. You decide if you want to do the workout everyday this week or come up with your own schedule.

This Week’s P-15 Workout: Shoot Free Throws. After a missed free throw, run a down and back sprint.

Tip: Take advantage of the 10 second count you have to shoot free throws. You should have a routine established, where as, you do the exact same thing every single time you shoot a free throw. Setting your feet. Bending your knees. Number of dribbles you take. Looking at your target before taking the shot. Lastly, following through.

Your talent can only get you so far. It can get you notoriety in the city, on MemphisGirlsBasketball.com and even nationally. Sometimes it can get you college basketball scholarship offers. SOMETIMES!
