The J-Glove is a revolutionary shooting aid designed to teach a player how to correctly grip, set up, and release a basketball. Used by a number of successful college programs, professional teams, and multiple trainers and players, the J-Glove utilizes its finger splint design technology to prevent early finger flexion at the base of the finger joints. This premature action is the #1 contributor to improper side to side wrist mechanics during follow through. The finger splint design also works to create the perfect shot set-up while keeping the ball off of your palm.
The J-Glove allows you to finally take control of your jump shot. No longer do you need to put up with inconsistent form, release, and accuracy. The days of "hoping" a shot goes in are over! Now you can trust your jumper and shoot with confidence and control. We also highly recommend the Millennium Shooting DVD (sold separately). This insightful DVD uncovers the science behind the J-Glove and includes shooting drills designed to correct biomechanical errors of past muscle memory circuits.
There are many different shooting aids on the market today. However, most of those aids are designed to only correct one area of the jump shot, such as keeping the ball off your palm. But no other shooting aid provides the key to fixing the most vital aspect to being a consistent shooter; an open-hand, square wrist follow-through.
Most often, the primary contributor to inconsistent shooting lies in the side-to-side wrist flaws that occur during follow through. For an illustration, let's look at right-handed shooter. If this player prematurely flexes his/her index finger during follow through (most common), then the result will be the wrist finishing toward the outside, away from the body. If the ring finger is flexed early, this will result in the wrist finishing toward the inside, toward the body. In either scenario, the wrist is not flexing on a frontal plane, leading to inconsistent accuracy and form.
But that's not all the J-Glove is capable of doing. It also develops proper finger separation on the ball and guarantees maximum extension at the wrist joint to create the perfect "trigger position". With its finger splint design, if the ball is in contact with a player's palm then it will be impossible for the player's index finger to be touching the ball. This works to reinforce proper shot set up with each shot taken.
The J-Glove will help you:
Eliminate finger flexion at the base of your fingers, creating an open-hand follow through with each and every shot.
Prevent improper side-to-side wrist mechanics.
Achieve maximum extension at the wrist joint and, in turn, keep the ball off the palm of your hand. This will work to create more arc and better power on your shot.
Obtain ultimate control of the basketball through proper finger separation.
Begin to experience success in just a few short weeks and build the confidence and trust necessary to be a great shooter at all times.
How Sizing Works:
Please refer to the sizes below. Be aware that these sizes are not a perfect science. Exceptions will occur based upon hand and finger variations of player's body types in a particular age group. We also recommend that middle school and adult females order medium and large sizes only.
Size Small: Grade school - Elementary (ages 8-10)
Size Medium: Elementary/Jr. High- lower High School (ages 10-14)
Size Large: High School (ages 15-up)
Size XL: High School - College/Pro (large, thick fingers)
Please note that the only difference between the small and medium sizes is the finger elastic width. They are constructed from the same glove size template. The same is true for the large and XL sizes.
"Don't let the look fool you, the J-Glove really works. It has really helped our players this off-season become aware that they were having follow through problems with their shots. It really forces them into correct shooting positions during the shot set up and their follow through."
- Josh Pastner (Head Coach Memphis University)
"Several of our players at Stanford have used the J-Glove with excellent results. It is a very useful training tool for the player looking to improve both their shot and their percentage. I would recommend it to anyone looking for that extra edge."
"Though usually skeptical about training aids, the J-Glove was suprisingly very effective for the players we recently had using it during our workouts. It really forces the players to release the ball in the proper manner. It is definitely something we will continue to incorporate into our skill training programs for our guys. I was so impressed by its results, that I even have my two sons (Jordan and Jonah) using it daily as well." - Phil Mathews (UCLA - Assistant Coach)
"The J-Glove is a revolutionary product that increases muscle memory and sensory perception for players at all levels. It is simple to use and through virtual reality, can teach the proper shooting release without a coach being on the floor. With continual repitition, the J-Glove will assist your players in becoming consistent shooters and game changers! The J Glove works for the National Runner-Up Cardinals, it will work for you too!"
- Jeff Walz (Head Coach University of Louisville - 2009 Runner-Up National Champions)
"Not only has the J-Glove helped many of our players improve their form and follow through, it was also very useful in helping one of our guys in particular re-train his stroke after wrist surgery in the off season."
"What makes the J-Glove such a great and unique shooting tool is that it helps and corrects so many fundamental aspects of the shot without feeling cumbersome on the shooters hand. Anytime a player can work out with a shooting tool like this, and not feel affected by either thinking about the feel of the glove or compromising the intensity of the workout . . . you KNOW it is a GREAT product! Everybody wants to become a better shooter, and that's exactly what the J-Glove can help players achieve. Our program highly recommends it and it really does fix follow through issues immediately!"
- Michael Schwartz (Assistant Coach University of Miami Men's Basketball)
"The J-Glove helps our players practice shooting correctly until it becomes muscle memory. In a game I don't wanth them thinking about the mechanics of their shot. I want them to read the defense and take good shots. The J-Glove makes good shots a habit. Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect. The J-Glove helps our playes shoot consistently perfect!"
- Sylvia Crawley Head Coach Boston College University (ACC)
"The J-Glove in my humble opinion is the Best Basketball Shooting Training Aid of the New Millennium. The J-Glove sells itself and Jeremy is a tremendous young teacher and coach of the game, evidence by his unique yet effective view on shooting in his shooting DVD."
- Herb Welling (excerpt from his respected b-ball blog)
"Jeremy Russotti [J-Glove Inventor] has been training me since I was 13 years of age. I went from a player that first picked up a ball in high school to an NCAA All-American (honorable mention) by the time I left college. His teaching principles and the J-Glove are no doubt some of the main reasons why I was able to continue to play basketball at the professional level."
- Josh Akognon 2009 NCAA Leader 3-Pointers Made - (138), Current Professional B-Ball Player
"I recently came across a program that has simply revolutionized my thought process on the proper way to shoot the basketball. The J-Glove is flat out the best shooting tool I've ever seen. I've been working out one of our players almost every day this spring as he tries to make the transition from a post player to playing on the perimeter. This player has worked his tail off shooting thousands and thousands of shots this spring, but progress and improvement has been relatively slow. After 20 minutes using the J-Glove my player was making over 60% of his shots from all over the floor with range out to 25 feet - a far higher percentage than he had ever shot in previous practice sessions. The rapid shooting gains this player made after just a week of using the J-Glove has made me a strong believer in a number of Coach Russotti's ideas, in particular his concept of "premature finger flexion.Furthermore, Russotti's ball-handling program contains the most progressive, innovative dribbling drills I have ever seen."
- Geoff Reed: Attack Basketball Blog
"That J-Glove is unbelievable! I was skeptical at first but that little glove really fixes problems with player's follow through instantly. Our guys have really gravitated toward it and asking to use it daily. In our league, we need every advantage we can attain. The shooting DVD has principles that I have never seen before but make absolute perfect sense."
- Kevin Mouton: Rice University Men's Basketball Assistant Coach
"Jeremy's J-Glove Shooting Aid drastically helped us improve our overall field goal percentage as a team to 51% for the season, and in particular helped two of our players increase their individual percentages by over 12%. It's simple design and high level of comfort make it the best shooting aid I have seen in my 20 years in the business. The perfect training aid for any level!"
- John Peterson (Head Coach Ohlone Junior College - Top 10 California JC)
"As an engineer and basketball skill trainer, I have an active and well-developed BS-detector which I constantly rely on to filter through all the gimmicks and hype associated with many of the basketball training products on the market these days. I'm very particular about the training equipment that I purchase and need to feel confident that its use will be effective. I can honestly say that the J-Glove provided the physical aid needed by certain clients to correct specific flaws in their release mechanics which they were not otherwise able to correct. I have found that some athletes can change the necessary neural circuit firings without the need of an aid, while others have a harder time changing these habitual movements. It's nice to have a device that can provide aid to those that need it. The J-Glove provides the needed constraints that I have been looking for to help reinforce proper shot release mechanics."
- Rick Allison, Owner, Founder and Lead Trainer of LoneStar Basketball Academy
"I got the ball handling video today and in my opinion it is better than any tapes I have seen in regard to individual skill development, and I have them all: Josh Akognon is a freak with his ball quickness, and is really fun to watch. Unlike so many other tapes, you slowed the stuff down, and then explained what to do, which truthfully is missing in a way too many of today's "instructional videos". I can't wait to watch the J-Glove Shooting DVD."
- John Jordan: 21 years Varsity Boys Coach St. Francis HS (Los Angeles, CA)
"My son just got the J-Glove and I just can't tell you how much he loves it! You should see him shoot with it! I always thought he was a pretty good shooter before he got the glove, he is so much more accurate since getting it. Unbelievable how quickly he has shown improvement."
- Email form Marty Woodard (Ohio)
"The J-Gloves help our teaching and results a lot. We try to get the guys to use them every day in practice. This season we made 312 3-pointers (39.2%). We would like to continue to increase the percentage but keep in mind teams focus a lot more now on defending our shooters so they have to shoot them under more duress and from further out. Our scores on our shooting drills in practice have gone up across the board and it is in large part attributable to the J-Glove."
- Email form Randy Bessolo (California)

My son has improved his shot drastically in three days. The glove is keeping his fingers spread and keeping the ball off his palm. What we noticed most as we practiced both with the glove and without it, was how much his index finger and thumb moved, which was effecting his shot in a big way. I think this works both because it makes him aware of what he should be doing and the correct muscle memory is kicking in. I've always told him, what's the point of practicing your shot if your doing it wrong. Now he seems to get it.
THANK YOU from a pap that was concerned about his grandsons shooting mechanics

My grandson was shooting a a push shot off of his palm. The j glove was put on as soon as he received it. He practiced and amazingly he didn't miss a shot. The glove corrected his shot by shooting over head and off of his finger tips. I hated his shot before the glove.He scored a lot of points before the glove, but his pap told him the truth that the mechanics of his shot was bad and he knews it. Thank you for this corrective tool.

if used properly to glove does help with accurancy and form. I wish it it extended to the wrist, so it can keep it form moving sideways. have used it at our practice.
The right tool

Solid product to help a young player focus on the key pieces to their shot. Well done!
