A floor chart can be used to track more than shooting percentages

A blogger with an account titled High Basketball IQ created and shared a floor shot in a post on August 21, 2010.

The basket portion of the chart can be found here. The mid court can be found here.

This chart was created on the approximate dimensions for an NBA floor, but it could just as easily be created with a college or high school floor.

The beauty of this floor chart is that it can be used to track all statistics, not just shooting percentages. For example, rebounds, assists, blocked shots, steals, deflections, hustle points, recovery, and so forth. The chart works best if it is used for just one individual, or, if it is used for just one statistic. All of the stats require more note taking than usual. For example, if a rebound it recorded, it should be noted where the shot came from when it was taken. Multiple charts can be used simultaneously. If multiple charts are used it would be easiest to record statistics from a video of a game rather than a live game. The reason it works best with either one player or one stat is because there is not enough room to record all of the information.

The blogger pointed out a few great uses of the chart:

  1. To track where a player is most often scored on. This could be an area of the court or a specific side of the player's body.
  2. To show if a player ever secures rebounds outside of his/her general area on the court.
