The objectives of the Jump Shot Warm-up Drill drill are to develop confidence, rhythm and range in shooting jump shots. Start in a balanced stance with your knees slightly flexed about nine feet in front of the basket. Use your non-shooting hand to place the ball in your shooting hand. Do not reach for the ball with your shooting hand. Rhythm and range come from the down and up action of your legs. As your legs go up your shooting arm goes up. Say your three personalized key words in rhythm from the start of your shot to the release of the ball. Recommended key words for developing range are “Down and up! Hold your follow through straight up until the ball goes through the net and bounces back to you. is not only mechanically correct, but you will look and act like a shooter.
