The EBA 10,000 Shot Club Challenge is a chance for you to improve your shooting skills over the summer with a goal you can achieve! Those who get to 10,000 shots over the course of the summer will receive a T-shirt and will be announced at halftime of a Varsity basketball game next season. Here's how it works:
- Tracking your shots is based on the honor system. Please estimate the number of shots as accurately as possible. For reference, if a player shoots 10 shots per minute, that is about 200 shots per 20 minutes or 600 shots per hour. That would be if the player is constantly shooting continuously, which is difficult to keep up for long periods. A good guess is about 200 shots in 30 minutes, or about 400 shots in an hour. Players can certainly do more or less than that depending on the workout.
- To get the most benefit, players should shoot a variety of shots. Layups, form shooting, free throws, three pointers, baseline jumpers, elbow jumpers, etc.
- Players should concentrate on using proper form when shooting. It doesn't do a player any good to shoot 10,000 shots if their mechanics are wrong. There are a few videos below that describe proper shooting technique.
- Please record your shots on a weekly or monthly basis. After a month is completed, we are going to lock down the numbers for that month so they cannot be updated. This will help ensure that previous data won't be mistakenly erased or changed.
