What is One Motion Shooting?
"One Motion" is a shooting technique developed and taught by Coach Rick Penny.
Several coaches at Breakthrough Basketball now use One Motion when teaching technique to young players. We like this technique because it's simple, easier to teach, and very effective.
It's based on the premise that your shot should be "one fluid motion" from beginning to end. No hitches, pauses, or wasted movements.
One motion synchronizes body movements and energy flow.
This technique is based upon a simple concept: shooters that utilize the path of least resistance along the shot line get better results. Proper execution allows the player to experience:
a quicker release
optimum results ...
Players like Stephen Curry, Steve Nash, and Diana Turasi all have quick and compact shooting motions. Allowing them to shoot very quickly and accurately without jumping as high as they can.
One Motion Shooting allows you to develop a VERY quick release.
One Motion gives all players the best possible chance to make their shot. Why? The ball does not deviate from its path or speed along the shot line. Momentum flows freely throughout the process, giving shooters better "touch" or "feel." At the release point, the ball is on an arc path between 42 and 48 degrees. This has been proven to yield the most baskets.
What Separates "One Motion" from Other Techniques?
Two factors separate One Motion from other techniques: 1.) Less effort is required
when shooting and 2.) It produces a quicker / smoother release. The entire shooting
process is non-stop which allows energy (power) to easily flow up the shot line.
This is vital in achieving an effective shooting motion.

Very well explained and clear. I think Rick is perfect for a Demo Video as he takes the time with Detail . I've worked through it with my 2 sons whom I also Coach and it's working well. It also helps to engage the kids when they know it's a similar technique to Steph Curry !
Simple and easy to follow instructions. Sample execution from several students helped clarify the nuances of different body types. My son improved his shooting percentages from the field and the free throw line in his first day of learning the one motion. He spent more time putting the ball through the net instead of chasing them. The warm up workout was a helpful starting point but I wish he gave a sample workout that maximized the one motion shot. Highly recommended!
