IF YOU ARE IN 7TH GRADE OR ABOVE - GET A JUMP SHOT

May 30, 2018

 

Advantage of a Jump Shot

 

The jump shot raises the starting position of the ball such that it is more likely to clear defending players.

 

In order to properly defend a jump shot, an opposing player must also jump. This means that there is a possibility that a defender could jump too early or too late to block a shot.

 

The player has the option to release at various points during the jump giving more options to evade a defender.

 

A jumper can move away from a player during the jump to give more room for a shot (fade).

 

Finally, the ball can be released at a location that is closer to the same height as the goal.
