About Rick Penny

Rick is known as one of the purest shooters, with the quickest release,
to ever play the game. His shooting technique is timeless; it worked when
he was younger (see Playing Days below) and it works today.

  •  988 of 1,000 free throws -- age 56

  •  490 free throws in a row -- age 50

  •  97 of 100 3pt. shots (top of the circle) 56 in a row -- age 50

  •  1774 of 2000 3pt. shots (top of the circle) -- age 50

  •  77 of 100 NBA 3pt. shots -- age 50

Rick knows shooting! He has a unique ability to work with players of all
ages (boys or girls) no matter their skill level. Coach Penny retired from
coaching in 2000 and is now pursuing 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!"
