Stephen Curry Shooting Form Training Season 2 Test 8 – Sideways Release Point

It was a rainy day, I do not like rain, because this made my hand wet and cannot find the correct hand feeling easily.

This test still trained for the shooting , especially upper body's sideways range.



I want to keep my elbow and the right shoulder in the same height, took the right shoulder  as forward as I can, but must keep comfortable. The pure type always made your elbow too low, so keep the elbow and the shoulder in a horizon is really difficult.

After this, I still need to make my right forearm and upper arm in a small angle. Just as Steph's angle:

At the sideview, the ball almost hit forehead, the right hand just close to your right eye, almost in that height.

  1. Hi Coach Shotur,

    I observed Steph’s posture is a little bit leaning backward compared to yours. Leaning backward helps him a better arc and also a better site I think. Please advice.


    1. Right, the upper body a bit leaning backward will lead good upward jump force, make your shot more stable. This video is only test 8, I improved this tip in about test 20.
