Basketball Shooting - Jump Hook

In the jumper, your shoulders and torso are straight to the hoop. In the jump hook, you protect the basketball by holding your torso and non-shooting arm immediately between the basketball and the opponent defending you.

1. Coming set for the jump hook is equivalent to what was depicted in the jump shot point preceding. Stand 2 or 3 ft. Immediately before the hoop. To get set, carry out the paces explained in the jumper point preceding till you progress to shooting, then understand the directions here.

2. When set, revolve your torso ninety degrees so that the shoulder of the non-shooting arm is aiming straight at the hoop. When revolving the torso, slip the non-shooting hand on the surface of the basketball thus that it winds up immediately between the hoop and the basketball. The shooting hand proceeds to look at the hoop. Whenever you're shooting with your right hand, your forearm ought to be upright and the basketball ought to be immediately over your right shoulder. To draw yourself as big as imaginable, your shooting arm ought to be fully stretched out, with just a slim curve at the elbow. This is the position for the jump hook.

3. When set for the jump hook, jump and shoot as explained in the basic jumper. To protect the basketball, maintain the non-shooting hand's complete extension, till the basketball is well on its path to the hoop. Memorize how to shoot the jump hook with either hand.

After shooting from a fixed location, work at shooting by stepping on to your non-pivot foot and elevating your pivot foot away from the court (see my point the step cease layup in the shooting category). For instance, whenever you would like to shoot a jump hook with your right hand, then set up your left foot as the non-pivot foot. Then, make a stride on it, leaping vertically and shooting when you concluded the stride. To keep from traveling, be sure your non-pivot foot doesn't go down to court till after the basketball departs your hand.

To do the jump hook with a step-in, do the following. Along the left face of the hoop, stand at a 45-degree angle to the backboard approximately 4 or 5 ft. from the hoop. Get set to shoot the basic jumper. Rather than shooting the jumper, stride into the paint on your left foot on a line that's symmetrical to the baseline. When your left hits the court, perform the jump hook.

Come back to the beginning location. Get set. And then stride with your right foot towards the baseline with a line that's symmetrical to the out of bounds. Perform the jump hook on your left hand. After a few repetitions of each shot, perform this workout from the opposite side of the basket.

Exercise performing the jump hook after getting a pass or finishing a dribble adjacent the hoop from a layup perspective on the floor. Exercise the jump hook once your opposition refuses you from shooting a layup.

The jump hook will assist you versus bigger defenders, so do not undervalue or under apply it ... Learn the jump hook basketball shooting skills carefully.
