Left-handed students place left foot a little in front of right foot, place feet shoulder-width apart, and bend knees. o Students should hold basketball with the hand they write with (which should match previous step). They place fingertips on ball with palms pointed toward the ceiling. Palms should not be on the ball. o To keep elbow straight, turn ball and hand back with wrist and arm in an ;L” position with ball just below eye level. The elbow should be above the knee and foot and over shoulder at eye level. The other hand is used as a guide hand, barely touching the side of the ball. o Eyes focused on the target, students bring the ball upward, straighten their knees, and shift their weight forward. They then flip the ball toward the basket by flexing their wrists. o Students control the direction of the ball with their fingertips and follow through to the basket while leaving the guide hand back. o In follow-through position, students should keep hands up, pointed toward goal, and act as if they are putting their fingertips in the basket. o Teacher will emphasize Balance, Eyes, Elbow, Follow Through.

 Partners stand ten feet away from each other. Students shoot ball in air, which should land on a line three feet in front of partner. Partners will shoot ball back and forth to each other. Students form two shooting lines ten feet apart and ten feet away from basket. Students shoot, follow rebound, and then pass to next person in line.
