ABSTRACT
The effect of 10 weeks free-throw training program on shoot techniques and the rate of successful shoot of young basketball players were investigated in this study. In addition to this, four thousand free-throw during the 10 week training period was analysed to find the improvement in successful shoot rate and to determine the number of shoots to improve the correct shooting technique including the time taken for this. Participants, Whose average age was 14,82±0,32 years, sport age was 5,29±1,57 years, height was 183,43±6,13 cm, weight was 68,05±7 kg, participated 30 young man basketball players as voluntary. Sportsman were divided 2 groups as experiment and control. Experiment group was made free-throw training before and after general training. At the beginning of the study, While there was a higher success rate and statistical significance (p≤0.05) among the control group compared to the shooting only training group in the pre-test results, at the end of the training period shooting only training group showed a higher statistically significant (p≤0.05) success rate. As a result, general basketball training does not show a significant effect on successful free-throw rate but free-throw training programs have positive results on successful shooting rate among young basketball players and four thousand free-throw training for the period of eight weeks is enough in increasing the successful shooting rate
