Your Off-Shooting Hand

When shooting a basketball be sure to use your off hand as a guide only. Most of the work that is done to shoot a basketball takes place with one hand. Your off hand is simply there to balance the ball. To practice the right hand positioning stand right in front of the basket with arm out and palm facing up. Place the ball on your fingers, bend your knees, bring the ball up to the side of your head and shoot the ball with your off-hand simply being there to make sure the ball doesn't fall out of your fingertips.
