  • To initiate the jump hook turn your left shoulder towards the defender so your body is sideways to both the defender and the basket. Jump straight up in the air, while carrying the ball over your head, with your right arm extended upwards, at the top of the jump you will use your wrist to power the shot towards the hoop.

While basketball drills are put in place to help hone skills, drills such as the jump hook are done in order to practice different ways of getting your shot off. Start with one minute on the clock and stand in the triple threat position. Dribble off to a corner, then make sure you relocate yourself to another corner. When you get within 5-10 feet of the hoop, use this move to make a shot. In order to initiate the jump hook, turn your left shoulder towards the defender so that your body is sideways to both the defender and the basket. Jump straight up in the air while carrying the ball over your head with your right arm extended upward. At the top of your jump, flick your wrist forward to power the shot towards the hoop. Mastering these basketball basics will set you up for success on any court!
