Description

Footwork is always important in executing a correct lay up shot.

Shooting from the right side, the player should lead off their left foot and reach up to the basket extending right arm up towards basket at the same time as keeping the right knee bent to aid lift.

Aim to place the ball on the backboard so that it rebounds back into the basket.
