How to Shoot like Stephen Curry Shooting Form Blueprint

Hey I'm Coach Collin Castellaw with Shot Mechanics Basketball and today you're going to learn how to shoot the ball just like StephenCurry Alright so the first thing we are going to talk about is Stephen Curry's feet when he shoots the ball. now your feet are really important because they are kind of the base or foundation of your jump shot and that's where everythingstarts on the way up through So the first thing i wanna talk about is theturn now a lot of coaches will tell you that you need to square up to the basketwhen you shoot the ball meaning that all 10 toes are going to face the rim. Theproblem with this is it adds a ton of tension to your shoulders.

So when you go to release the ball above your head it makes it really difficult and that smooth one motion release that guys like Steph Curry haveso what I think yes you do and what Steph Curry does his you tilt your feetjust slightly off to the side if you're looking to three point line here you cantell my right foot is closer to my left foot and just having the flight killedin yours your feet back as soon as you bring the ball up here shooting hitalbum shoulder and all are aligned to the basket that's gonna help me shootthe ball straighter and eliminate a lot left to right missus I've seen playersthat have been square shooter their tire

life and increase their shootingpercentage maybe ten to twelve percent just by turning their feet immediatelyso it's something that's really really important and something that youprobably want to track so taking jump shots see what you got going on and thenkind of assets you know you wanna make sure you're not turn too far or toolittle you know some people like a small turnsome people like a bigger turn but where you want to be careful of is that you'renot turning too much I've seen players kind of start getting carried away andit's 90 degrees and that makes it pretty

hard to get all that power momentum intothe Basketball as well so generally want to turn your feet somewhere between likeit there was a clock on the ground somewhere between like 11 and 10 30somewhere in there but his players thought that different to think aboutturning your fetus or just like seven and can help unlock all that power yourshoulders to make it a lot easier she with range inconsistency parts of thenext thing you want to think about on your footwork much like Stephon curry ishaving your heels up at all times when you're getting ready to shoot thebasketball a major mistake that a lot of

players make his when they catch theball going into it is it a plant their heelsin the ground as they're stepping into it now the issue with this is as youplace your heels it sucks all your energy momentum into the ground it makesit that much harder to regather it slows you down a time you lose the latterrange and you lose a lot of quickness till one thing you can do is you canmake sure that you're always on the balls of your feet and heels like theground just like this you can tell him on the balls of my feet my heels can actas a natural springboard and allow my

ankles knees and hips to all worktogether to get that quick pop into the jump shot the ball makes it all the wayto the basket really easy really smoothly so a great way to think aboutit is like a diving board I would like to think about it like that if you'retrying to jump off the diving board you don't run player heels into it and tryto bring off you stay on your toes right and jump shots pretty much the samething as you're catching the ball you're getting ready to go into your shockspring off the toes a very little contact time with the ground and usingall three of those joined together get

Hi, this is Sean Hobson and what we're talkingabout right now is the proper mechanics behind making a great shooter. Now, we can talk abouthaving a good base. We've talked about picking up the goal with your eyes. Now, its the importantpart which is actually making the shot. So, first of all, we always want to catch theball and we want to get locked in the shooting form. We want to have our feet shoulder widthapart, good base. Now, we have our hands perfectly ready. Now is ready in time to make the shot.Now, there are a lot of ways that you can make the shot. We want to talk about the properway. There's kind of a difference that you have to find out. There is a common pointthat you need to practice over and over again.

And what I mean by that is some people shootthe ball way out in front of them. That's not where you want to go because what happenswith that is a) the ball is going to have too much velocity and you're going to havea flat shot. Its going to have a hard time getting up over the rim. Its going to hitthe front of the rim. So you don't want to come out of your shot and shoot it straightout in front of you. You also don't want to shoot the ball straight up top because what'sgoing to happen there is you're going to shoot the ball up high but its not going to havevery much distance. So you want to find a happy medium. And that release is going tobe about right here. All you're going to do

is you're going to take your hand from yourshoulder and just bring it straight out and that's about the proper angle to making ashot. So not too high, not too far out, but about right in the middle of making the shotand Hunter's going to demonstrate what that looks like. Good. You see his hand wasn'tstraight up, it wasn't straight out, its about 45 degree angle and that's the proper shootingstyle that we want you guys to use.
