Great shooters take pride in the way they think, train, and feel. To be a great shooter like Steph Curry, you need to develop a shooter’s mindset. Join PGC Director Matt McLeod as he shares four steps you can take to learn the mindset of and become a great shooter.
STEP 1 – BUILD CONFIDENCE THROUGH PREPARATION
Confidence comes from preparation. Great shooters spend countless hours in the gym to prepare for that one moment their team needs that special shot.
STEP 2 – PRACTICE GAME SHOTS
Too often, players practice shots they’ll never take in a game. Practice shots you’ll take in games, and only take shots you’ve practiced.
STEP 3 – TRAIN EVERYDAY
The trademark of every champion is consistency. Work on your technique and shot every day.
STEP 4 – FORGET THE MISSES
The best shooters miss more shots than they make. To develop a shooter’s mindset, forget the misses and focus on the makes.

I want to share with you a problem I have faced. It’s a problem all athletes face, and one that can be extremely frustrating and discouraging throughout a career.
The problem is players put in an immense amount of time, energy, and effort, but struggle to see their improvement.
