Flex–the coiling of your body like a spring–bending at ankles, knees, waist, elbow.
Force–the power comes from the legs below.
Focus–keeping your eye on the prize, whatever part of the rim they choose or“ what you have taught your kids to zero in on.
Faith–again, belief in the final stages that it will go in, visualizing.
Finish–going from the coiled spring position to the fully extended.
Follow-through–body is fully extended, the only part bent now is the wrist!, snap = backspin, holding it confidently until the ball gets to its destination.
