The Pro Shot Shooting System is an advanced shooting program based on biomechanics and mental focus. The System is currently being employed by thousands of professional, collegiate and high school players and hundreds of AAU, high school and collegiate teams.
At Pro Shot, we truly believe that the majority of today’s coaches don’t teach concepts displayed by the best college and professional shooters on a daily basis.This is the reason why the majority of youth and high school players continually struggle with their shooting.
This site is designed to educate players, parents and coaches about not only the Pro Shot Shooting System, but also the past, present, and future regarding the art of shooting.
We truly believe that anyone that has an open mind will improve their shooting by learning new concepts and techniques from our videos, articles, and eBook.

Three Shooting Videos That Will Change Your Mind!
Coaches, Players and Parents,
This summer I decided to focus on video tape. There is an old saying in sports that “film doesn’t lie.” After watching hundreds of hours of video tape on shooters, I truly believe this adage to be 100% true.
When I coached high school, I believed film was the “truth”. My opinions on this matter have only become stronger.
During the past three months, I decided to breakdown the best college and professional players. I studied both genders and focused on players from the past four decades.
I focused on three components that we teach on a daily basis: the turn, the dip and the sweep & sway. What I discovered was truly amazing.
After watching all the video and taking tedious notes, I discovered the following to be accurate: 100% of all great NBA and college shooters use at least one component of the dip, turn and sweep & sway, 98% use two components and 95% use all three.
At the WNBA level, 90% use one component of the turn, dip and sweep & sway, 80% use two components and 70% use all three.
Those totals are pretty staggering especially at the mens levels. Now, here is what I believe is the most alarming figures. ONLY 5% of all high school and college coaches teach any of these components. Two percent teach two and less than 1% teach all three.
If you look at these numbers, you have to wonder “What is really going on here?” How can coaches not be teaching shooting principles that the best shooters in the world use?
It’s really simple. The majority of coaches never got the memo that basketball has evolved. We have dinosaurs out there walking the face of the earth with short pants and a whistle. They are teaching shooting concepts that are 60-70 years old.
Today I am presenting three videos that explain in detail the turn, dip and sweep & sway. If you watch all three they will take up 20 minutes of your time. I truly believe if you watch these three videos you will be surprised at what you see.
I am trying to change the mindset of shooting across this land. Trust me–It’s VERY difficult. We come across many “dinosaurs” who have all the answers in regards to shooting, but their players CAN’T shoot a lick.
Hopefully these videos give your team and players additional shooting success this upcoming season.
The best shooters in the NBA and WNBA turn their feet and square their shooting shoulder and hip to the basket. While this is controversial, it is really happening!!! And it works!
VIDEO: THE TURN
Players are told by their coaches to never dip the ball and yet, the shooting dip is one of the most important shooting concepts. It DOES NOT slow your shot down and it gives a shot great rhythm and power.
VIDEO: THE DIP
SWEEP AND SWAY
The best shooters in the NBA, WNBA and College Basketball sweep their feet forward and sway their shoulders back. They DO NOT shoot straight up and down! This helps increase range and better the shooter’s arc.
