Suggested Grade Level:


Start with your shooting hand on the bottom of the ball and your "support" hand on the side of the basketball.

Your shooting elbow should be directly underneath the basketball.

To shoot you should bend your knees and jump up in the air.

"Push" the basketball towards the back of the rim while at the top of your jump.

Follow through and finish with your hand in the "Cookie Jar."
