Basketball Drills Long Range Three Ball

Objective of Drill: We all like to shoot three’s but, what happens in those circumstances when our defense is playing face-up defence,or when you need a quick “winning shot”, or just to simply amuse your teammates and astonish your opponents?

Action of Drill: 1) Read Basketball Shooting Tips and understand them.

(2) Make sure you have your legs bent. Most of your power comes from your legs.

(3) The arm action should be more of a push out in front of you, as opposed to a throw.

(4) Do not fade away.

Coaching Points: This type of shot is not recommended as a regular shot, its percentage is too low unless you’re Reggie Miller.
