TOM NORDLAND'S “SWISH” METHOD
Dedicated to Learning and Coaching “Pure” Basketball Shooting
Tom has endorsements from top college and professional coaches and players. Here are some of them:
"Working with Tom Nordland has improved my Jump Shot and Free Throws more than I could ever have imagined. He is a phenomenal shooting coach!"
-- Mark "Mad Dog" Madsen, now with the Minnesota Timberwolves, formerly a Stanford All American and the Los Angeles Lakers' #1 pick in 2000
"Your tape is something every NBA player should have. I would be glad to endorse your film for you as I know it would help NBA or college players to realize the necessary mechanics for successful shooting. Obviously the NBA is aware of the failing skill as shooting percentages continue to drop. What you offer is something sorely needed."
-- Pete Newell, Sr., legendary coach, his teams have won NCAA and NIT Championships, Coach of the gold-medal-winning USA Olympic Team in 1960 with Oscar Robertson and Jerry West. He has spread basketball wisdom across the globe with clinics in Europe, Central & South America and Japan and he runs an annual Big Man Camp in Hawaii.
"Just a note to say hello and to thank you for sending me your excellent video & workbook on shooting. After reviewing both, I definitely feel they would help anyone who is interested in improving their shooting touch and fundamentals. I feel [Swish] is one of the best shooting videos I have ever seen. CONGRATULATIONS on your personal success, and putting together such an outstanding (useful) video."
-- Bill Sharman, Boston Celtic Legend and Special Consultant to the LA Lakers
(Bill is considered to be one of the greatest shooters of all time!)
"The proof is in the pudding - look at the stats! I've made a major improvement and expect to improve more by continued working with Tom. His technique is different from most shooting coaches. He does a combination of form (technique) and the art/science of repeatability. It really works!"
-- Dale Davis, NBA power forward, Portland Trailblazers (former Indiana Pacer)
"I am thrilled with what Tom Nordland has done with me. His coaching method is amazingly simple, easy to apply, and the results are easy to see. Anybody can improve their shooting with his approach."
-- Adam Keefe, formerly an NBA power forward, Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz
"Every NBA team should hire you as their shooting coach!"
-- Jim Barnett, longtime NBA player, former Golden State Warrior, one of the better shooters in the NBA, and now TV Analyst for the Warriors
"I think it [the Swish video] is excellent. I would recommend it highly for players and coaches on any levels."
-- Lute Olson, University of Arizona (former National Champions)
"Coaches and players have been searching for the secret to great shooting for as long as the game has been played. Tom has managed to simplify the technique that is both understandable and practical in its usage. This video can be a great tool for anybody looking to learn how to shoot."
-- Mike Montgomery, Head Coach of Golden State Warriors, formerly with Stanford University
"After 30 years of coaching at the Division I level, I've discovered the finest shooting coach in my basketball career. Tom Nordland's video, 'Swish -- A Guide to Great Basketball Shooting,' simply demonstrates the keys to success for shooting a basketball. If you're a beginner, Tom will build the foundation and focus for career-long shooting success for you and your team-mates. Don't miss a clinic if Tom is speaking and demonstrating. He'll excite you with his outstanding teaching methods."
-- Stan Morrison, long-time head coach at USC, Univ. of the Pacific, and San Jose State, and member of the 1959 NCAA National Champ, Univ. of California at Berkeley, now Athletic Director at Univ. of Calif. Riverside
