TRAIN YOUR SENSES
This helps with focus, being able to block things out, and also to be able to switch “channels” very quickly.

Get some energy from the court!
Try to think of how it feels to hold the ball – when you are excited to go and start shooting hoops. As you think of that – when you step onto the court, hold that same feeling. So get excited, and as soon as your shoe hits the ground – associate that feeling with the court. Again, get excited and energetic (get hype!) and then do it as soon as your foot hits the court. Feel the energy and power of the basketball court!

How to Use YouTube: Echo Drill
Watch the videos below or to your right, pick a play/move you want to add to your game:
PART I: DO THIS WHILE AT HOME OR WHEREVER YOU ARE WATCHING YOUR VIDEO

Step 2: Replay in your mind the star player doing that move (rewatch the move if you can’t see it in your mind)
Step 3: See yourself, in your mind, perform the move. Watch yourself as if you are sitting in the stands.
Step 4: Go inside yourself and feel yourself perform the move.
Step 5: Do this 30 times
PART II: ON COURT
Step 1: Repeat Steps 1-5
Step 2: Do the actually 30 times on the floor, in between each shot do step 1-5. (It doesn’t take long to do this mentally)
