The fact is, that with sports it's important to practice until the point where you can do something well without thinking about it. It's all muscle memory. You can't get good overnight and you won't be good if you have to think about what you're doing. Your mind should be on anticipating plays and things of that nature, not on how you're shooting, passing, stickhandling, etc. Those things should just happen.

When you practice with each shot you take, you should think about what a proper shot looks like and coach yourself to figure out what you're doing improperly. What do you do that makes the shot go where you want it go or how hard, if you got it right, what did you do that time that you're not doing this time? Self-coaching is a lot harder than when someone coaches you (a luxury that adult league players don't have), but it's still very important.
