Wissel shooting DVD


BASKETBALL SHOOTING: MAKE YOUR SHOT AUTOMATIC
DVD, 2009, 90 minutes. Great shooters are made, not born! Dr. Hal Wissel's Basketball Shooting: Make Your Shot Automatic is a must-have DVD for any player who wants to become a pure shooter and for any coach who wants to improve his or her ability to coach shooters.

Filmed at one of Coach Wissel's SHOOT IT BETTER Mini Camps for NBA players and prospects, the DVD features a series of innovative lead-up and challenge drills along with demonstrations of shooting errors and corrections. Dr. Wissel emphasizes confidence as the most important factor in being a great shooter. Players are not simply told to be confident, but shown how to foster their confidence through the use of positive self-talk and the use of key words that trigger correct mechanics, rhythm and range. Coach Wissel teaches players how to integrate the mental and mechanical aspects of shooting.

Correcting shooting errors are also demonstrated. Learn how to correct a missed shot and to always act like a shooter. Learn how to correct: a slow rhythm, not using legs, incomplete follow through, low arc, side rotation of shooting hand, ball shot off wrong finger, hand moving on ball, thumbing, lowering, swiveling, ball on palm and/ or watching the flight of ball. By watching the demonstrations in this DVD, players can recognize an error they may be making and learn how to correct it. Players will gain a better understanding of their own shot and learn how to become their own best coach.

A number of innovative lead-up drills are presented.

BASKETBALL SHOOTING: CREATING YOUR SHOT OFF THE DRIBBLE
DVD, 2009, 55 minutes. This is a great DVD for players and coaches. Players will learn to create their shot of the dribble and coaches will learn to teach players moves and drills for shooting off the dribble.

Coach Wissel teaches players how to pick the ball up off the dribble using key words that trigger correct shooting mechanics. Key words of "Front and Top" are emphasized to promote picking the ball up in front of the shooting knee (preventing floating) with the shooting hand on top of the ball (fostering back spin). Coach Wissel also teaches players how to create space away from the defender when driving to the strong-hand side and weak-hand side.

Drills in Basketball Shooting: Creating Your Shot Off the Dribble include: shot fake jump shot, step-back jump shot, step-through leaner, drive middle jump shot, drive middle step-back jump shot, step back and drive, drive middle runner, drive middle reverse down lane hook, drive baseline jump shot, drive baseline step-back jump shot and drive baseline reverse middle hook. Drills to improve finishing with either hand include: reverse lay-up, hook and runner.

BASKETBALL SHOOTING: POST MOVES AND DRILLS
DVD, 2009, 52 minutes. Dr. Hal Wissel's Basketball Shooting: Post Moves and Drills is a great DVD for players and coaches. Players will learn post-up scoring moves and coaches will learn to teach players post-up moves and drills. Coach Hal Wissel starts by teaching players how to make their strong hand and weak hand hook shot automatic with a series of hook shooting lead-up drills including the hook shot warm-up, hook shot warm-up with crossover step and the alternate hand hook drill.

With detailed instruction and demonstration, Coach Wissel teaches techniques that will improve a player's ability to score in the low post using post-up moves without a dribble and post-up counter moves with one dribble. Low post moves and drills include the drop step baseline power move and the drop step middle hook. Front turn baseline moves include the shot fake bank jump shot, the crossover middle hook and the counter spin back power move. Progression includes the read and react drill to post defense.

Coach Wissel advances to teaching moves and drills from the pinch post. Detailed pinch post (elbow) moves and drills that are taught include the shot fake jump shot, crossover step drive, back crossover drive and hook, step-back jump shot, step-through leaner, crossover step drive bank jump shot and step-back jump shot off the dribble.

Coach Wissel teaches players how to create space away from the defender when driving to the strong-hand side and weak-hand side. Points of emphasis include picking the ball up off the dribble in balance and with correct hand position on drives. Players learn to use the jump stop and crossover dribble when driving to their weak-side. Players are shown how to finish their drive with a jump shot, leaner, hook, reverse lay-up or power move.

Next, Coach Wissel teaches scoring from the midpoint and off a pick and pop to the corner with detailed moves and drills including the shot fake front turn one dribble middle hook and drive baseline reverse lay-up. Also included in the DVD is the one versus two read and react drill.

Basketball Shooting: Post Moves and Drills DVD is the third in the 3-DVD series that includes Basketball Shooting: Make Your Shot Automatic and Basketball Shooting: Creating Your Shot Off the Dribble. This 3-DVD series shows players and coaches how Coach Wissel integrates breakthrough mental and mechanical techniques to improve shooting and scoring skills.

Two Original DVDs...
Wissel shooting DVD


BASKETBALL SHOOTING: CONFIDENCE, RHYTHM AND MECHANICS
DVD, 2005, 65 minutes. This is the first of the two original DVDs and it will show you how Coach Wissel integrates breakthrough mental and mechanical techniques to improve shooting confidence and skill.

Coach Wissel explores the psychology of becoming a great shooter and provides physical actions and auditory triggers (key words) that teach players how to "act like a shooter", bolstering confidence, while eliminating negative thinking.

Holding the follow-thru until the ball is in the hoop and achieving a free-flowing rhythm are keys. The role of the index finger is something new that I took away from the video. The shooter is taught how to become his own coach and how to correct errors. Many drills are provided. Free-throw shooting tips are given. Tips for coaching shooters are given.

Wissel shooting DVD

BASKETBALL SHOOTING: OFF THE PASS, OFF THE DRIBBLE AND IN THE POST
DVD, 2005, 75 minutes. This second original DVD is more advanced and takes the player to the next level. Perimeter players will learn how to properly catch the pass so as to be in correct position and ready for the quick release and shot. Learning to shoot off the dribble, off the cross-over, and off the shot-fake are demonstrated. There are pointers on how to shoot when coming off screens, as well as how to correctly use the screen. Various chair drills are included.

Post players will benefit from this video as well. The detailed instruction on the hook-shot is the best I've seen. Several important post moves are demonstrated including pivoting moves to the baseline and to the lane, and one-dribble moves to both the baseline and lane. I highly recommend this DVD for players wanting to move to the next level.
