Forming a C to Get Better Lift on your Shot

What letter of the alphabet do you want to form when shooting? The best answer is “C.” When forming a C, the player will have a wrinkle in their wrist & their elbow will be directly underneath the basketball.

Helpful teaching points regarding the elbow that impact your arc include:

-Elbow is underneath the ball = LIFT

-Elbow is in-front of the ball = SLING SHOT

-Elbow is behind the ball = PUSH
