5 Point Guard Tips


At OtterBasketball Point Guard Elite Camps we have five foundational concepts at the heart of our Basketball training curriculum.


Tip #1 you have to be able to move with and without the ball offensively and defensively. Too often we hear people say he or she is not athletic enough to play at this level. Inside our Point Guard Elite system we specialize in maximizing a players athletic ability by teaching them how to reroute movement mechanics by Understand Point Guard Elite alignment and loading principles to change direction and accelerate

Tip #2 you have to be able to shoot it is no secret you have to be able to shoot. Not only to score points but also to be a constant threat on the floor it forces defensive players to guard you tighter making you quicker that you truly are. It makes it easier to create passing angles while also knocking down free throws and shots late in the game. It is no secret that players coming out of the OtterBasketball Training system knock down shots.

Tip #3 put yourself in positions that make the game easy. To often players have a tendency to make the game too difficult. OtterBasketball students Understand how to play in a way that slows the game down or makes the game easier vs. more elite athletes.

Tip #4 Make everyone around you better. We expect OtterBasketball Point Guards to put their teammates before themselves and to continually ask themselves after every practice if they made someone better today. Setting the example off the court, in practice and in the game.

Tip # 5 be disciplined. Player often are aware of what is expected of them but often take the easy way out. As a Point Guard we believe it is important that we demonstrate discipline in every part of our life on and off the court. It is very rare when we think of leaders that we would follow someone who appears to be undisciplined. We must be disciplined in our approach.
