Basketball: Free throw shooting

Very useful format and descriptions of drills. I am using Sportplan...
Tony, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Ensure the player's shooting arm has the elbow at approximately 90 degrees underneath the ball.

The wrist should be cocked back underneath the ball.

The non shooting hand should only be used as a guide to stabilise the ball.

COACHING POINTS

Teach this skill to players individually, getting them to throw the ball in the air to themselves.

Once your players are used to this movement they can start to work in pairs, shooting at the basket.
