Get Fouled
This is a strange step, but in game situations you cannot get to the free throw line without getting fouled.

Collect Yourself
You may be mad about the foul or tired from running back and forth. Take a deep breath and enter the half circle.

Perform your Pre-Shot Routine
You should have a routine that you do every time you receive the ball at the charity stripe (free throw line). You might dribble with your left hand, spin the ball, and then shoot, or maybe you take one dribble, pass the ball around your body, take one dribble with each hand, and then get ready to shoot. Make your routine fast. You only have roughly 15 seconds to do it. It should be comfortable and easy to do each time.

Bend your Knees
Many people come up short on their free throws because they do not use their legs. They are an important power aspect.

Tuck your Elbow
It helps you use proper form and make a good accurate shot.

Shoot the Ball
Don’t wait too long or you will psych yourself out. Do what you do best and shoot the ball. Don’t hesitate or rush it. Take your time and execute.

Get Back on Defense
Don’t let the other players rush back on you after you make/miss your free throw.
