Jr. NBA Jr. WNBA Training Videos: Shooting Pt. 1
Players must start in a shooting stance with shooting arm slightly in front and ball should be off shoulder height. The elbow must be in line with the front foot, which would be the same side as the shooters arm. The knee should be slightly bent just over the front foot and the opposite foot slightly behind to release the shoulder for a comfortable shot.
Players start in a basic shooting stance with basketball in shooting hand and the ball should be off shoulder height. Player performs a shot using shooting hand only with good extension and high release. Shooter must keep eyes on the hoop and use legs to get initial power for shot, then flick of the wrist for high accuracy and great form on shot. This drill is used for building strength in shooting arm.
Players start with basketball in shooting hand only while lying on their back. They attempt to use the same basic shooting principles only difference is they are laying flat on their back so they have to use their wrist and shoulder to perform the drill. This is used for building strength in shooters arm.
Players start in a basic shooting stance with basketball in shooting hand only using a wall to shoot the ball off. This is a drill plays can perform if they don't have a basketball hoop and still work on their shooting technique and shot form.
Player starts at free throw line stepping into the shot with left foot first then right foot and shot. The player must catch the ball in a ready basic shooting stance and extend to a jump shot. They must then continue the drill again by stepping back to the free-throw line and perform the same footwork and shot. If player is left handed, the foot technique is opposite.
Player receives the basketball at the top of the key and makes one right hand dribble in the forward direction to the right side elbow. Using the correct footwork, player steps into the shot with shooting hand. The player then continues the drill by back-pedaling to the top of the key but this time receives the ball and goes left side elbow with the one left hand dribble and shoots with shooting hand.
Player grabs the ball from the top right elbow and performs one dribble using the right hand. Player then performs a jump-stop going into a power lay-up using the right hand with shoulders square to the basket. The player then runs to the left side and grabs the ball off the top left elbow and performs the same motion, this time using the left hand. Power Lay-ups protect the ball from the defender avoiding the shot from getting blocked.
Coach picks five spots around the 3 point line where player receives the ball from. Player starts by receiving the basketball at the right side 3-point line, then takes one dribble forward with the right hand and goes into a shot with shooting hand. Player then runs back to the half-way line and runs back to point 2 which is the next position in the drill. Player then performs the same motion with one dribble forward and shoots. When player gets to the left side, the left hand forward dribble must be used before performing a shot with shooting hand.
