National Basketball Shooters Association

The NBSA was established in November of 2009 by a group of free throw masters and world record holders with a mission to improve free throw shooting at all levels of competition. The NBSA will accomplish its mission by:

  • Collaborating with free throw experts around the world to organize, develop, and provide the best free throw instruction possible via expert articles, books, videos, clinics, and practice programs for individuals and teams.
  • Making free throw shooting fun and competitive via individual and team competitions and ranking systems.
  • Publishing research, news, and stats that validate the importance of free throws in winning basketball games.
