10K Makes Shot Club

The OYB10K Makes Shot Club is a prestigious club of basketball players. These players are willing to separate themselves in commitment and dedication to the game. The OYB10K Makes Shot Club is a summer program designed to challenge our players to practice excellent shooting form and to improve that shooting form by shooting and making a lot of shots during the off-season.

The goal is to MAKE and RECORD 10,000 or more shots during the Summer off-season.

FAQs:

What are game shots?  Game shots are different for every player.  To be successful, you should start in close to the basket working on proper form for a warm up.  Once you have established your range (distance from the basket where you can shoot the ball with proper form) you are ready.  But remember - any shot you shoot, whether it’s while warming up or playing pick up ball, counts toward those shot totals.

Note: only game shots made count toward 10K goal.  Flipping the ball up from underneath the basket and half-court lightning shots are examples of shots that do NOT count.

Why game speed?  You should shoot all of your shots at game speed because that is what will help make you a better player during games.  Standing around and playing “HORSE” with a friend is fun, but really isn’t helping you come game time.

Do free throws count?  ABSOLUTELY!  Ideally free throws will consist of approximately 25% of your shots taken.  When you shoot shots at game speed for a long period of time, you will need to rest.  Free throws are a great way to rest during a workout.

Can I just guess how many shots I shoot and make?  The idea behind the 10K Shot Club is to give you, the player, the confidence and the knowledge that you deserve to win because you put in time to improve your game.  You must be true to yourself and be honest about what you want to get out of doing this.

What do I get for making the club?  You will successfully complete the program if you turn in all your tracking reports, making sure all shots have been verified by a parent or guardian. Members who make 10,000 shots will receive a 10K Makes Shot Club T-Shirt and will be recognized for their accomplishment during an OHS Varsity Basketball game.
