Improving Basketball Skills : Basketball Reverse Layup


Hi, I’m Travis Corpening, and I’m about to
teach you, just how to do a Reverse Layup. Here we are at Carolina Beach Recreation Center,
and the first thing you want to do, when you’re trying to do a Reverse Layup, is you want
to be able to jump from one side of the goal, at least to the other side of the rim, so
once you take off, you want to position yourself to where, when you’re taking off, you’re already
prepared, before you even jump. You’re all ready prepared, to make it, on the other side
of the rim. Now, by preparing yourself before you get to the other side of the rim, what
you do is, you allow yourself more time to adjust to the defense, to have your mind and
body adjust to the defense, for whatever may happen, while you’re in the air, so that you
can complete the shot, so what you do, is you take off, reach with your opposite hand.
If you’re coming from the left side of the basket, you want to complete it with your
right hand. If you’re coming from the right side of the basket, you want to complete it
with your left hand, but you can interchange, if you’re skilled enough. After you come from
the other side of the basket, you want to reach around, and you either want to spin
it, or you want to tap it, right in the middle of the box, over the top of the rim. Once
you do this, practice it a few times, and it’s a really effective shot, during the game,
when you’re in a tight squeeze, and the defense is really playing you down low. There you
have it, the Reverse Layup.
