There is no question that self-confidence plays a key role in how well athletes perform. Whether the athlete is a professional ball player or a middle school child who just joined the team, self-confidence doesn’t always come naturally to everyone.
To anyone, lack of confidence can be devastating on your mental well being as well as your daily performance, but to a child it can be especially crushing.
Imagine being a child or adolescent who loves playing basketball, but just can’t seem to get the shots he or she needs to make the team. How would that affect you? Each day you try harder and harder on the court with no results.
One of the greatest opportunities that sports give our children is the ability to believe in themselves and to be confident.
How can you increase confidence in your basketball player and improve their game? Find out more about our Dr Dish Shooting Machines.
Practicing without a machine, your all-star could be shooting for hours without the proper arc to make those baskets and wasting energy running around chasing missed shots.
With the Dr. Dish Shooting Machine, your basketball star will see increased reps, proper shooting arc because of our net collection system, and with our Pro or All-Star series machines, you can see the number of shots made and shooting percentage. You can track the improvement with our downloadable stats.
What does that mean for your child? Increased confidence because of the ability to make the shots properly and carry that on to the court.
“We developed the Dr. Dish because we saw a need for a basketball drill machine that could add value and improve skills quickly,” said Doug Campbell, President of Airborne Athletics.
Confidence is a feeling inside that you are ready to perform, no matter what you encounter. It is a feeling of certainty, of control, and provides an athlete with a positive outlook regardless of the situation.
