The Rick Barry DotShot Basketball Shooting Aid combines a compression sleeve with visual reference points (the Dots) to improve shooting accuracy by giving basketball players the ability to"See and Sense" their shooting arm.  

The Dotshot helps you shoot the basketball with Proper Alignment (see the dots in straight line with elbow pointing down) and Proper Arc (see only one dot after you shoot).  If you see more dots, you shot the ball flat.

Five Fundamentals of Shooting 
          by Rick Barry
1. Ball in open hand (not on fingertips)
2. Wrist cocked (parallel to the floor)
3.Arm straight (Elbow pointed down)
4. Shoot the ball UP, not at the basket
5. Follow Through
The DotShot Basketball Shooting Aid is a patent pending training aid to help basketball players improve their shooting form and increase their shooting accuracy.  

The patent is a sports aid and method and claims a multitude of designs and applications.  It employs the powerful affects and effects of compression technology along with a unique visual design to improve elbow alignment, ball arc, arm awareness and shooting accuracy.

The DotShot is designed with simple, solid dots that your eye easily sees and your mind quickly processes allowing you to instantaneously use this information during the shooting motion.  The dots are aligned along the forearm giving you the best opportunity to see them at different stages throughout the shooting motion. The contrasting colors of the sleeve and dots can be readily noticed on the shooting arm using your peripheral vision.  Read more about this on the Proper Alignment and Arc page.


The DotShot compression sleeve stimulates your arm and increases your arm awareness. The DotShot improves your ability to sense your shooting arm position and movement during the shot through this “feeling” mechanism.   This is also called "proprioception" or the ability to sense body position and movement through stimulation. . 

Always keep your eyes on the target!  When you shoot the basketball while using the DotShot, focus on the rim (or the backboard for bank shots), but “see and sense” the DotShot without looking at it directly.  See the dots with your peripheral vision and sense the sleeve stimulating your arm.  Practice with the DotShot and “train your brain” to be more aware of your arm before, during and after your shot.

DotShot technology is based on the scientific discovery of 'Proprioception' (prō-prē-ō-sĕp-shĕn) or the  increased ability to sense body position and movement through stimulation. 
The DotShot uses physical, visual and mental stimulation.


SEE.  The DotShot improves your alignment and arc by helping you see (using your peripheral vision) your arm position and movement.  The dots give you visual reference points to remind you to properly align your arm (see the dots in a straight line with elbow pointing down) and to shoot the ball with proper arc (see only the dot closest to your elbow after you shoot  and hold your follow through).  If you see all the Dots while you are still looking at your target then your shot the ball flat. 

SENSE.  The DotShot improves your awareness by helping you sense the compression sleeve on your arm.  The DotShot stimulates your mind and body to better feel your shooting arm and shooting motion.   

SCORE!  The DotShot improves your accuracy by helping you practice with better shooting form.
