August 10, 2007, Newsletter Issue #307: Proper Wrist Technique for Shooting the Ball

Tip of the Week

Repeating basketball shooting drills is one of the only ways to perfect your shot. Consider this basketball shooting drill without the ball.

Begin by relaxing your hands and with your arms at your sides, start to shake your hands forward and backward.  Place your feet shoulder width apart and raise your arms straight over your head with your palms facing forward.  Your elbows should also be pointing forward and be slightly bent.  Rotate your hand and forearm outward so the palms face forward.  Begin to flick your wrists directly back, not forward or the sides.  Let the wrist move forward effortlessly with no motion in the arms.  Allow your wrists to sway back and forth.  Practice this basketball shooting drill for one minute at a time.
