After you register, download this Tracking Sheet which includes suggested 50, 100, 150 and 200-shot routines to help players work on a variety of shots and more easily track their sessions. Links to dribbling drills and routines are also provided.

Grade-level goals have been established for both MADE baskets and dribbling minutes and players will receive prizes and recognition for meeting their shooting goal or dribbling goal or both. For players who want an extra challenge this summer, special recognition and prizes will be given to those who achieve a stretch goal of 10,000 made shots and 1,000 dribbled minutes.

Congrats again to all of our participants and we look forward to seeing more submissions and results next month!
