Perfect facts-NO fiction

Why is form and hand position on the ball so important - really!


The "Art of the shot"!   

Fact: how and where you position your OFF hand is a large part of the errors in shooting! The OFF hand is not really needed but for competition . 



  • All of these parts SHOULD line up, over and/or under each other!
  • The shooting hand and same side foot are lined up,  BUT,  the toes always point toward the basket-ALWAYS!!! 
  • The body is at a slight angle as in shoulders and hips. 
  • Body mechanics - SUPER important!

Fingers on the ball


Point the shot thumb toward the holding hands' thumb(knuckle). DO NOT "grip" the ball with this thumb!

  • Your fingers are Perfectly lined up and relaxed! Placing your NON-shooting hand on the back and side of the ball creating no drag or friction!
  • The thumb(s) steady the ball !!!
  • The ball should be "sitting" in your fingers-no parts of palm touches the ball. If you turn the palms downward, the ball should fall out of your fingers!
  • The INDEX finger is the last to touch the ball during a shot! Wrist is allowed to cock back and upon release, the wrist is "snapped forward as if it will break on the rim itself!
