"Helps those players who are trying get from a two motion shot to a one motion shot. It works really really well and is simple to use. It's all about the angle of your shooting elbow. A lot of players get into the habit of catapulting their shot toward the basket. It locks your elbow into that perfect 90 degree shooting position. It helps with creating a smoother and faster shot giving you a fantastic one motion shot like Stephan Curry."

"The number-one reason why shots are missed long happens when the angle at the elbow is not L-shaped, but is V-shaped. This causes the ball to be flung or catapulted at the hoop at a relatively flat angle. A flat trajectory offers the ball only a small apparent hoop opening as well as often going long. We see this not only in the pinch into a V at the elbow, but also when the ball comes close to the face or over the dominant-side ear in the middle of the lift. The Shot Square is a very effective teaching tool to keep the elbow at an L shape, which gives a better lift, a better arc and better results. I have used it with many shooters with that shooting flaw with good success."
"Players have been told for years to get the ball off of the palm of your hand and to not dip the ball below your waist and yet Steph Curry sets the ball in his palm and Ray Allen dips the ball below his waist. Players see the best shooters in the world using different techniques effectively, but the one consistent characteristic is a squared shooting elbow.
The ShotSquare™ is a great accountability tool to keep your elbow squared to the rim, but that is just the beginning. The ShotSquare™ also forces players to get their strength from their legs, as the 90 degree angle forces the ball up instead of out, giving players a more consistent arc on their shot.
I have used this product on beginners all the way up to established international players and the results speak for themselves!"
"I get a lot of players who come to me and we have to correct the "Chicken Wing" (elbow's flair to the side). The ShotSquare™ allows players to keep their elbow straight especially when they are practicing on their own. Having this tool to reiterate keeping the elbow straight, especially in younger players is the greatest part of the ShotSquare™!"
"When I was first informed about ShotSquare, I was intrigued because of how it could develop players shooting mechanics. All my clients literally love ShotSquare because it is the most comfortable way to improve and change a players shot without any added frustration."
