Shooting Analysis & Coaching, Coach Education & Consultancy
"Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away"....
Basketball shooting is both an art and a science, and arguably the most important skill in the game; however, analysing and teaching shooting mechanics, and developing the scoring abilities of players has long been surrounded by confusion and misunderstanding.
Shoot'n Hoops® have broken through many of the myths, misconceptions and conflicting information surrounding shooting mechanics, and have developed a unique methodology for analysing shooting form, identifying flaws and inefficiencies, and effectively teaching players the most comfortable, bio-mechanically efficient, consistent and reliable shooting form for them. We call this Perfect Form 4U©
Via our Perfect Form 4U methodology and support curriculum, we provide a learning experience second to none to help players, coaches, parents and sport educators develop a deeper understanding of the key principles of effective shooting, and acquire and apply the knowledge and skills to either improve their own individual shooting, or more effectively coach others.
Shooting Coaching (Live)
We provide a range of live specialist shooting coaching services, including:
Small group or team coaching
Specialist shooting clinics/camps
Individual sessions are typically a 1 hour service conducted on-court and incorporate:
Specialist coaching and instruction
Use of video feedback to enhance the learning experience
Production of "Video Lessons" which can be accessed online
Small group or team coaching
Specialist shooting coaching sessions can be tailored for groups of various sizes.
Training locations (Venues)
We are based in Pakenham, Victoria, Australia. We have access to training locations in the South East Suburbs of Melbourne, or we can come to you.
We are able to travel to deliver our coaching services, however (not unlike consultants in other industries) additional charges for travel or accommodation related expenses, travel time allowance and also court hire fees may apply if coaching is required to be conducted in remote venues. A quotation can be prepared for these additional expenses upon request!
PERFECT FORM 4U Methodology
Perfect Form 4U is our own, unique, proven and trusted system of methods comprising a comprehensive suite of innovative coaching tools including: techniques for effective shooting analysis, a range of unique verbal and visual teaching cues, exercises and drills, and our unique, copyrighted, animated video shooting model Peter Perfect™.
Via our Perfect Form 4U methodology, curriculum, and teaching resources, we provide a learning experience second to none to help players, coaches, parents and sport educators develop a deeper understanding of the key principles of effective shooting, and acquire and apply the knowledge and skills to either improve their own individual shooting, or more effectively coach others.
Our Perfect Form 4U methodology is structured and presented in a smart, yet simple and logical manner using our PERFECT FORM Acronym ©. This structured, systematic approach permits us to teach all the important elements of shooting, (and the most effective ways to analyse and teach them) in an easy to follow, understandable manner, and greatly assists player and coach understanding and retention of this information.
We examine and evaluate all aspects of shooting form utilising our PERFECT FORM 4U methodology and digital video technology. We consider each players’ unique, individual physical abilities; specifically eye/hand dominance, joint flexibility/mobility (particularly wrist flexibility), posture, balance, strength, stability, speed, power, timing, rhythm, etc.
We also factor in each players' preferred learning style, and cognitive, perceptual and motor abilities in order to deliver the most specific feedback in the most effective format, and prescribe the most appropriate training to educate and empower players to "practice with purpose" and develop the Perfect Form for them.
Team Shooting Analysis Service
We can come to you and film your entire team, then produce and deliver specialist shooting analysis and video lessons for each player.
Coaching staff can learn so much from studying the analysis and lessons we provide to their team that this service is also an invaluable professional development opportunity for coaches.
Remote Shooting Analysis Service
You can capture the vision we need for either an individual, small group of players, or an entire team, send us your video clips either via HUDL Technique or via uploading to Dropbox. We can then produce and deliver specialist shooting analysis and video lessons for each player.
We provide easy to follow filming protocols to help you capture the best quality vision from the best vantage points and enable us to perform accurate, detailed analysis and deliver you the best possible evaluation and review.
Remote Shooting Coaching
Thanks to ongoing advancements in technology, basketball players, coaches, parents and sport educators can now easily, and affordably access our unique and innovative remote coaching services from virtually anywhere in the world.
So many people seek professional advise on shooting, yet truly professional and reputable specialist shooting coaches are very hard to find.
With the advancements in video capture capabilities and internet connectivity of modern smart phones and other portable devices (iOS and Android), it has never been easier to capture and remotely share high quality video clips.
Using our remote coaching system, we make it easy and affordable for anyone, anywhere to access our elite coaching.
HUDL Technique is the worlds' leading mobile application for sport video skill analysis and coaching, trusted by millions of players and coaches worldwide; and is our tool of choice for professional and reliable delivery of our remote coaching services.
Side by side comparison with our PERFECT FORM 4U models
HUDL Technique provides the industry leading video coaching tools. Shoot'n Hoops provides the basketball specific expertise, knowledge and experience in shooting coaching. Together, we are able to provide one of the most effective remote basketball shooting analysis and coaching services available anywhere in the world.
A key strength and point of difference of our remote coaching service is our own unique, computer simulated, perfect form video models developed by Shoot'n Hoops. Our video models are anatomically and biomechanically perfect, animated visual representations of what we believe to be the simplest, most comfortable, and most efficient shooting form.
We have developed models for free throws and jump shots from various distances, and for various stages of physical development so that we can effectively visually demonstrate and teach PERFECT FORM 4U remotely

We synchronise videos provided by clients with our PERFECT FORM 4U models and conduct a side by side comparison and review.
This process provides a visual learning experience second to none, and makes our remote coaching experience often far more effective and meaningful than a live coaching session conducted on-court with a lesser experienced coach, not using video analysis.
Video reviews and lessons
Using HUDL Technique, we upload lesson files to our Shoot'n Hoops HUDL Technique account, and share the links with clients for them to view, study, and then implement our instructions into their training; essentially providing clients the expert advice they need to "practice with purpose".

Coach Education Workshops/Mentoring
Our mission is to contribute positively to the continued growth and development of the game of basketball both in Australia and world wide through the practical application of sports science and technology in basketball coaching and a commitment to ongoing coach education and training.
We understand that most basketball coaches are not sports scientists and have no desire to be! Our coach workshops are designed to educate and up-skill coaches, and can be delivered at a number of different levels ranging from beginner coach, or parent just wishing to assist their child, through to advanced, elite level professional coaches.
Workshops are as hands-on as possible; detailed technical information is presented in user friendly terminology using our PERFECT FORM 4U methodology with a key focus on providing lots of practical applications of how coaches can immediately incorporate information learned into their day to day on-court coaching.
Our coach workshops are an ideal way for clubs, associations, schools, and basketball organisations to provide their coaches with some valuable specific professional development.
