    Not sure what you're trying to achieve here?

    There's one thing being quick at snapping, there's another for being accurate with it.

    Start off with snapping in slow-motion with a target. Ensure that you form is good. Then slowly (I mean slowly) increase the speed of the snap. Repeat. You will probably get to a position where your form and accuracy goes to pot once you reach a certain speed of the snap. There is where you need to slow it back down, regain your form and accuracy.

    Practise Practise Practise, but make sure you're maintaining the form and accuracy.

    Also, practise your snapping (snap, post, wrap) with a opponent... this is what you should be doing, as its what this is more likely the skills you'll required during a game.

    Always train for accuracy first and foremost. No point snapping at nothing.

    Like Gavin says, slow it right down, and work it up from there. If you are accurate, the speed will come.

    Remember to do more with your off hand.

    start or closer than gradually move your target away ! start at 15 or so foot as if you get that close to someone and you havent shot them already i will give up and play golf ! lol

    We did some training with Clint Moore a few months back, and snapping was a big part.
    Set up behind a bunker (we used a small cake- train in the hardest bunker and the bigger bunkers will feel easy!), and shoot at a cone, or pole, behind another bunker a sensible distance away. Start slow, and try and hit every time, preferably with someone watching and correcting mistakes. 5-10 shots from left, right and above, trying to hit within 5. If someone doesn't hit all three in those shots, punishment lap of the field! Makes it more realistic if there is some pressure on each time. move the target further, or tighter behind the bunker to up the challenge, or lower the number of shots for success. Also try rattling off ten very quick shots each side of the bunker, and then starting to count the shots to simulate being tired/stressed as in a game. Finish with some one on ones to put it in context - only shoot it you see you opponent to ensure they are playing tight.

    After a few training sessions i find Snap shooting getting easier and easier, We normally use a small cone on a pole just set behind a bunker at head height and practice trying to hit the top of the cone 1 balling,

    After a while, Try some 1v1 ? this adds the pressure of another playing shooting at you, and helping you trying to keep cool and focus on your technique
