Description

An independent study by Columbia University discovered that free throw percentages have not gotten better for over 50 years in the NCAA nor the NBA. The New York Times reported that since the mid 1960's there has been no improvement in free throw percentage while there has been vast improvements in every other aspect of the game. Why?

The free throw is a static erratic process. The player is stationary before he shoots. Whereas every other aspect of basketball is a reactive athletic process. The player catches and shoots, the player dribbles and shoots, the player steps into his/her jump shot. Over the last 50 years, basketball has only intensified this static erratic process by shooting hundreds of free throws during practice time. One after another, reinforcing free throw shots that re enact game situations therefore not being productive in the pursuit of making free throws in a game.

iFreeThrow makes the free throw a reactive athletic process by giving the player a feeling that transfers from practice to game situations. It is the key to the free throw revolution. To be able to step up in the game and have the feeling that transferred from the right practice.

So how does iFreeThrow give the player the correct feeling in a game situation?

We have studied the best free throw shooters in the world in game situations. They all have a common tempo/rhythm to their free throws. This consistent rhythm, or tempo, is a 2 to 1 ratio from the time they start the ball up to when they set it (2 parts) and the time from the set to the follow thru (1 part). So if we were watching on video for example, the player would take 20 frames from start to set, and 10 frames from set to follow thru. Each player's mechanics vary so maybe another player takes 16 up to set and 8 to follow thru. The speed at which they shoot may vary, but the ratio of tempo is consistent.

Great Basketball Instruction

:
I have a 10 year old son that is very much into basketball and ifreethrow has been a fantastic learning tool to help him improve his game. Developing consistency and learning to perform a sports action at the same rythym regardless of the game situation or pressure is something every coach wants to help their players develop. This is an absolutely super learning tool that I would recommend to any player at any age and any level.

My percentage of made shots is way up!

:
After shooting to the tones of iFreeThrow, I have increased my free throw percentage. I feel like it helps me shoot with great form that is totally efficient... no wasted movements... just simple perfect form. I would say that now I am consistently making at least 9 out of 10 free throws on the average.
