This study aimed at identifying the values of some kinematic variables to of jump shoot in basketballfrom three different positions (center, right side, left side) on distance (5.80 m) from the basket, as well to build a kinematic modelof jump shooting in at these centers.The subjects used consisted of (1) professional basketball player of the Jordanian national team (n=1)Individuals (age 35 years, and the height 197 cm, and the mass 92kg).The study examined the angles of flexion joints(elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle) at the preparatory phase, as well the angles of flexion joints(elbow and ankle) at the take-off phase, and the angles of flexion joints(elbow and wrist), as well the release(velocity, angle, height) of ball atthe release phase. The study sample was filmed by using Sony video camera (Sony HDR-CX220E) reached speed (50) frame/s.The study results showed that the values of the variables of the study in three positions were among the results achieved universally values and that's turn to make adjustments in body position to avoid obstruction opponent, also the player will increase the release velocity of the ball, and increased the release angle to avoid obstruction opponent. The researcher recommends the importance of necessity the variables that precede the launch of the release phase. As well as the adoption of these kinematic models in training plans.
