Coaching Points

jump shot
- during forward run bring up the ball to shoulder height
- third step is explosive and large
- in the air the hip should go backward together with the throwing arm
- pull up other leg untill upper leg is horizontal
- screw back the hip
- the arm follows this movement explosively to the front
- point after the ball where it should go
- land on the same leg as you jumped off

center shot
- lefthanders : right foot in front. righthanders : left foot in front
- at the same time get your hand at the height of your shoulder and then backwards
- fore-arm should have a 90 degree angle with upper-arm
- hip goes turns backwards together with the throwing arm
- hand behind ball, fingers slightly spread
- the thrird and last step going foreward must be a big one and explosive
- foot into the direction of the goal
- hand,arm,shoulder,hips must move foreward explosively, with full force
- hand behind the ball, don't squeeze the ball
- when the other foot comes off the floor, the throwing arm should pass the head (ear height)
- stretch out the throwing arm, point towards the direction you want to throw it
- upper body part follows the throwing arm lightly downward

push pass
