B.E.E.F 2.0



I believe you can improve B.E.E.F  if you teach the S.E.D.R.S concepts with in its framework. I call this B.E.E.F 2.0 the new and improved B.E.E.F.


Balance= Stance

  • The concepts that are used for stance will transfer over towards balance.  Shooting hand on the side of the ball feet can be turned or squared.  *If you teach feet to be squared they will be turned mid air during the Elbow portion of B.E.E.F  Ball on the palm of the hand.

Eyes= Eyes

  • This one is the simplest, you teach the 3 concepts of eyes from the S.E.D.R.S philosophy.

  1. Establish which eye is your dominate eye and have your shooting motion shoot through that eye.

  2. Eyes target 11″ past the front of the rim (The Sweet Spot)

  3. Eyes follow the flight of the ball

Elbow= Dip & Turn

Elbow portion gets a little tricky but I’ve broken it down into 2 parts which are in specific order.

  1. Dip the Ball, no need to dip if you are dribbling the basketball because you are already in your dip.

  2. Shooting elbow turns/rotates towards the rim out of your dip. This action is Turning portion of the sweep and sway in the S.E.D.R.S philosophy. Remember as the elbow turns towards the rim so do the hips, feet, palm, and shoulder.

Follow Through= Release and Sweep & Sway

  1. Lock elbow out wrist flops down (Never snaps) palm rotates towards the rim 70% of maximum speed,

  2. Feet Sweep Forward Shoulders sway back.  The longer the shot the greater the Sweep.

I have no problem with the B.E.E.F system its been my experience that these specific concepts haven’t been taught within its framework.  Any system of shooting will work if you teach these concepts. You can use other terms if they can convey the concept. You can use S.E.D.R.S or another systems as long as you teach these 5 fundamental concepts. These concepts have the biggest impact in determining whether or not your shot will go in.
