|About Rick Penny

Rick knows shooting! He has a unique
ability to work with players of all ages, improve their shooting
mechanics and get results.
Coach Rick Penny is now retired from active
coaching to pursue his passion - teaching shooting!
As Rick puts it:
After retiring from coaching, I went to the
gym and shot quite a bit just to pass the time and because it was fun.
At some point I realized that basketball was still important, and it
struck me that I could teach shooting and be in touch with the sport
and kids. I decided to teach others to shoot the way I did. So I
analyzed my shooting mechanics and the One Motion Technique was born!
