Remote Shooting Coaching
If you're serious about getting better at shooting, there's no better way than with expert analysis, specific individualised instruction, and structured training provided by an experienced professional shooting coach.
Basketball Shot Coach™ offers a unique remote specialist shooting analysis and coaching service for players and coaches of all levels.
With the advancements in modern technology, it has never been easier to capture and share high-quality video clips and communicate remotely. Our remote video analysis and coaching communications are facilitated via an industry-leading online coaching platform combining user-friendly, in-app video capture and exchange, advanced video analysis tools, and chat messaging to facilitate simple, seamless real-time communication between coach and athlete.
Using this platform, our coaching communications can either be private “one-on-one” with just the athlete or can include others like parents, trainers, or other coaches in the conversation as well to permit multiple inputs; or even shared among a group or team.
Chatting and sharing of video clips are seamless and intuitive, and as easy and natural as a text-message conversation.
Most athletes are kinaesthetic (doing), or visual (seeing) learners; a key strength and distinct point of difference our remote coaching service has in the basketball industry is our unique, computer-simulated, Perfect Form© video models.

Our video models are anatomically and biomechanically perfect animated visual representations of what we believe to be the simplest, most comfortable, and most efficient shooting form, which we use for side-by-side comparison and overlaying with client's videos, and for extremely effective teaching and instruction.
As they say, "the video don't lie", "seeing is believing", and "a picture is worth a thousand words".
Basketball Shot Coach™ has developed Perfect Form© videos for free-throw shooting, short-range, mid-range, and long-range jump shooting. With professional consideration of each client's unique individual characteristics, Basketball Shot Coach™ combines our years of shooting coaching expertise with our unique suite of state of the art remote coaching and learning tools to assist any player, anywhere to learn, understand and master the Perfect Form for them, remotely!
We examine and evaluate all aspects of shooting form utilising our PERFECT FORM 4U methodology and digital video technology. We consider each players’ unique, individual physical abilities; specifically eye/hand dominance, joint flexibility/mobility (particularly wrist flexibility), posture, balance, strength, stability, speed, power, timing, rhythm, etc.
We also factor in each players' preferred learning style, and cognitive, perceptual and motor abilities in order to deliver the most specific feedback in the most effective format and prescribe the most appropriate training to educate and empower players to "practice with purpose" and develop the Perfect Form for them.
Team Shooting Analysis Service
We can come to you and film your entire team, then produce and deliver specialist shooting analysis and video lessons for each player.
Coaching staff can learn so much from studying the analysis and lessons we provide to their team that this service is also an invaluable professional development opportunity for coaches.
Remote Shooting Analysis Service
You can capture the vision for either an individual, a small group of players, or an entire team.
Video clips can be captured on iPhone, iPad, or Android devices and forwarded to us quickly and easily via our online coaching platform which is as simple and intuitive as attaching a video to a text message.
We then analyse your shooting form using the videos provided and create a series of detailed instructional video lessons plus prescribe and explain appropriate training including coaching cues, tips, drills, and exercises specifically aimed at your individual specific requirements.
We provide easy-to-follow filming protocols to help you capture the best quality vision from the best vantage points which enables us to perform a more accurate, detailed analysis and deliver you the best possible evaluation and review.
PERFECT FORM 4U Methodology
Perfect Form 4U is our own, unique, proven and trusted system of methods comprising a comprehensive suite of innovative coaching tools including: techniques for effective shooting analysis, a range of unique verbal and visual teaching cues, exercises and drills, and our unique, copyrighted, animated video shooting model Peter Perfect™.
Via our Perfect Form 4U methodology, curriculum, and teaching resources, we provide a learning experience second to none to help players, coaches, parents and sport educators develop a deeper understanding of the key principles of effective shooting, and acquire and apply the knowledge and skills to either improve their own individual shooting, or more effectively coach others.
Our Perfect Form 4U methodology is structured and presented in a smart, yet simple and logical manner using our PERFECT FORM Acronym ©. This structured, systematic approach permits us to teach all the important elements of shooting, (and the most effective ways to analyse and teach them) in an easy to follow, understandable manner, and greatly assists player and coach understanding and retention of this information.
Coach Education Workshops/Mentoring
Our mission is to contribute positively to the continued growth and development of the game of basketball both in Australia and worldwide through the practical application of sports science and technology in basketball coaching and a commitment to ongoing coach education and training.
We understand that most basketball coaches are not sports scientists and have no desire to be! Our coach workshops are designed to educate and up-skill coaches and can be delivered at a number of different levels ranging from the beginner coach, or parent just wishing to assist their child, through to advanced, elite-level professional coaches.
Workshops are as hands-on as possible; detailed technical information is presented in user-friendly terminology using our PERFECT FORM 4U methodology with a key focus on providing lots of practical applications of how coaches can immediately incorporate information learned into their day-to-day on-court coaching.
Our coach workshops are an ideal way for clubs, associations, schools, and basketball organisations to provide their coaches with some valuable specific professional development.

When I bought my son to Basketball Shot Coach™, I thought he was already a very good player. After two consecutive Vic Country State selections (now 3) and access to some of the best coaches in Australia I thought "how much more can a 16 year old learn". How wrong I was!
Under Coach Phil Shelley's tutelage, I watched and learned more about shooting skills and how to prepare for and play the game than I have from any other person over my last 45 years in basketball.
With Phil's teaching methods, his innovative use of technology and tools, I watched him transform not just my son's shooting technique, but every aspect of his game to become a significantly better player than he was before we met Phil.
Phil is much more than a basketball coach; he is also a mentor, psychologist, sounding board, and trusted advisor to my son. His attention to detail is second to none, his approach is not about winning, it's about developing the whole athlete, physically and mentally. If you want your child to learn correct technique, hone their existing skills and learn new ones, learn how to prepare and recover from games both physically and mentally, and practice for maximum benefit then I could not recommend Phil Shelley and B'Ball Shot Coach more highly.
