As in all the 99 "How To Play Better Basketball" brochures,
each section makes Players very aware of
what they need to do to succeed
on the court.

Take a look at this excerpt from "Effective Shooting Mechanics"

Two Factors to Shooting Well
A player needs two elements to shoot well (1) proper alignment - all body parts line up with the basket and (2) judgment - how hard, how far and when to make the shoot.
A Playing Tip: The most consistent shooters use a compact movement, they use the same muscles and a limited amount of muscles each time they make a shot.


Our exclusive 8-panel, pocket-size brochure allows
Basketball Parents, Developmental League Coaches and Self-Coached Players to readily reference each Player's shooting decisions ...
  • How is the Player's alignment?

  • Is the motion concise and compact?

  • How balanced is the Player when making a shot?

  • etc.

Besides knowing factors to shooting well, when you get this copyrighted brochure, you'll learn these other easy-to-follow shooting mechanics ...

  • a sequence for better shooting,
  • the shooting range,
  • when to shoot,
  • shooting off the dribble,
  • 4 types of shots and
  • shooting checkpoints.

Success is your only option!!!
Fail to see something that's not quite right or struggling to get the Player to perform proper defensive actions, then use the skills outlined in "How To Coach Better" to develop better skills, more awareness and improved results next time on the court.
