page id: 234694 Shooter (shooting the ball)


The player that shoots the ball. Shooting the ball is a basic “art form” that takes a great amount of practice to perfect.

The main parts of shooting the basketball  (external link) include:

a) hold the ball with fingertips ( not with the palm ),
b) elbow in,
c) opposite hand is only used to help balance the ball and never to assist with the shot,
d) eyes on the target (front or back of the rim, just use the same target each time),
e) follow through (shot hand stays up until the ball goes in the hoop or misses).

Remember... “ BEEF ” =

  • Balance ( bend your knees slightly ),
  • Elbow in,
  • Eyes on target ( front or back of rim, stay consistent ), and
  • Follow through !
