OMG! This is awesome. I learned how to make perfect shots all the time and even if i miss now i know what went wrong for me and what i need to fix. When i just started to play basketball my team couch always taught to shoot whole team with a rebounds. But flawless shots is more better.

The classes that i attend do not teach individual skills but focus more on team play.This class has helped me focus on my personal skill development

Great !!!! breaks everything down that will help my boys become better shooters and players over all.

I started Playing Basquetball Because of this Masterclass i found a Court near my house and I get in love with the sport, although i know i am not tall enough that won't keep me away from trying to improve in the game. And also i can apply this knowledge to my acting career. So thanks a lot Stephen and Thanks you masterclass. I love you all

This was very helpful. I never realized that dribbling harder is better control. This was very basic and foundational and I liked it. Personally I am at this level of dribbling, but it was good to review the details of my foundations, because sometimes you can get to comfortable and get lazy.

1 week in, once a day 3 reps of this basic ball handling drills. So frustrating!

Wow. Wow. Wow. For me, Stephen's guidance on shooting form as foundation is good, but already known and could be a little bit better. Shooting drills explained by him are exactly what i need to help me improve my game. But his ball handling. Seeing him dribble so extremely efficiently blew my mind away!!!!! It's insane. The foundations are extremely solid. On the surface, it doesnt seem like much but damn.. in reality, thise is truly a masterclass

I think the order of the bullets in the workbook is incorrect (Section labeled Training: Phase 3 (Cont.)) - I'm guessing it should read: 1. Warm-up and Stretching 2. Stationary ball-handling circuit (1st Rep) a. One-ball pound right: 30 seconds b. One-ball pound left: 30 seconds c. Crossover: 30 seconds d. Between the legs (alternating): 30 seconds e. Behind the back: 30 seconds 3. Form shooting Progression: 100 Total Shots 4. Stationary ball-handling circuit (2nd Rep) 5. Four-way form shooting: 25 total shots a. 1-2 Step (straight up and down): 5 Shots b. Toward the basket: 5 Shots c. Away from the basket: 5 shots d. Lateral left: 5 Shots e. Lateral right: 5 Shots 6. Stationary ball-handling circuit (3rd Rep).

I think that these tips are very good. They have helped me a lot in basketball. It takes one to know one😺

I found this to be much more useful and informative than the shots-based practice. Super!

After these 6 lessons, I've realized I've been playing basketball ALL WRONG my whole life. Loving the focus on fundamentals, but it's gonna take time and patience to break a 42-year habit.
