Abstract

Basketball play is classically accompanied with a significant loss of body water with a potential negative impact on both physical and cognitive performance 1. Very few studies have examined the impact of dehydration on biomechanical adjustments required to score in basketball, though joints angles, the position of the centre of mass and ball release parameters (i.e. height, release speed and angle) are among the best predictive factors of success in basketball shooting 2. Dehydration might alter the biomechanical requirements of successful shots and especially three-point shots (3PS) which generate 16% of points scored during a match. However, only 35% of 3PS are successful in game. Within this framework we analysed the effects of a controlled dehydration protocol on the success and technique of 3PS in elite basketball players. Changes in shooting technique were analysed through changes in body kinematics (i.e. 3D angles of the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist, and the height of the centre of mass) and ball release parameters (i.e. height, velocity and angle of the ball at release) of 3PS in a dynamic playing condition.
