The Relationship of Shooting Skill with Functional Movement Performance and Attention Level of Basketball Players

Umut Canlı, Çalık Veli Koçak


The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of shooting skill with the functional performances and attention levels of professional basketball players. Sixteen male basketball players (age = 20.6 ± 2.30) from university basketball team who were trained on regular basis participated in this study as volunteers. Participants' body height and body weight were measured and body mass indexes were calculated. D2 test of attention was utilized to determine the focus levels. Shooting skills were determined by shooting tests. Spearman Correlation Analysis was utilized to determine the correlation of shooting skill with functional movement performances and attention levels of participants. There was a moderate level of negative correlation (rho = -0.57; p<0.05) between the shooting skill scores and deep squat scores which is one of the functional movement performances. A moderate level of positive correlation (rho = 0.54; p<0.05) between TN-E (Total number of items processed-Total error score) scores and shooting skill scores were determined. Consequently, as the deep squat values of professional basketball players increases, the shooting skill decreases and with the increasing attention level, shooting skill increases.
