The word "touch" is used in basketball all the time, but for the purpose of this basketball drill it is talking about the players ability to put the ball up on the rim with the right amount of touch. If the player shoots it too hard it will clank off the rim/backboard, or if they shoot it too soft it will come up short and hit off the front of the rim. This mid range shooting area is all about developing the right touch and feel for the shot, and this basketball shooting drill will help to work on that.
This baseline touch curl basketball shooting drill will help you work on your touch, warm up your shot, and also help you focus on your shooting mechanics. Even if you have been shooting a basketball your whole like, it is still important to refresh yourself on the proper shooting mechanics. This drill should be used before a workout or game to help the player warm up and start to feel good about their shot.
