Proper Rotation and Grip
The seams of ball should be horizontal. Spreads fingers wide on ball using fingertips only.
Shoot Shot Outside Eyebrow
Do NOT block your vision, keep the ball slightly off the edge of your outer eye’s vision.
Block and Place For Quick Shot Properly
Catch the ball correctly, keep steady on your feet with your weight evenly distributed.
Always Use The “L” Form For Your Shooting Hand
Extend the elbow straight from shoulder through to your fingertips in a straight line toward the basket.
All Shots Use Legs First
Your feet should be balanced properly. Keep your dominant foot 6 inches ahead of your other foot.
Both Hands Up
Now this is self-explanatory!
Index Finger into Basket
On the follow through, imagine placing your finger into the hoop.
2 Second Finish on Shot
Totally complete your shot. Do NOT drop your hands quickly, follow through. In training, count to two before lowering your hands.
Control Your Breathing
On Free Throws, shoot either between inhale and exhale, or after exhale. Get a tempo in your breath that allows for moments of intention.
Foul Lane Help From Teammates
Encourage the free throw shooter before and after every shot. Each shot is brand new. If you miss the first shot, the next is your “comeback” shot.
