"BASKETBALL - IMPROVING YOUR SHOOTING SKILLS"



1. Get open.
Create a lead before you receive the ball. Set up the shot you want. "Hoped Shots" rarely end up in the basket.



2. Shot selection.
Know your ability. Practice and employ your best shots. Some good practice shooters may become only average game shooters, but there are no poor practice shooters who are excellent game shooters.

Know where your teammates are before shooting. Make sure no teammate is open for a better shot. Know when to shoot. Passing up a good shot is just as important as taking a bad shot. Be aware of defensive players' and offensive rebounders' positions.





3. Shoot with consistency.
Be on balance. Take off is with opposite foot of shooting hand. Hold ball high with wrist back and elbow pointing directly at the basket. Release ball quickly but do not hurry. Ball should have good back spin. Follow through. Keep shooting hand and fingers extended until ball goes through the basket.



4. Concentrate on shot.
Shoot with touch. Focus on the rim. Do not watch the ball - a shooter that take eyes off the target usually blows the shot.

Concentrate on every shot in every practice and every game. Concentrate despite any distractions of noise and movement. You should have only one thought on your mind, and that is making the shot.



5. Shoot with confidence.
To be a good shooter, a player must have the confidence in his shooting ability. "You are only as good as you think". Practice. "Shooters are made - not born." The secret to good shooting is countless hours of hard work and concentration. This why coaches love to see baskets in player's backyards. Use the "Beef" principle to analyze and improve your shot.

6. Acknowledge the pass. Will result in receiving more and better passes. Become a proficient passer. Passing will build better shooters because the principle of throwing to a teammate is the same as shooting at the basket.
