The issue in this study is shooting skills of basketball players which are low categorized. The aim of study is to determine the relationship of hand-eye coordination and arm muscle explosiveness to the shooting ability of basketball players. This is correlational research design. Population is a group of basketball players at a school with 15 players as a sample who taken by saturated sampling technique. The instrument used to collect the data are followings: (1) ballwerfen und-Fangen used to measure hand-eye coordination, (2) basketball throwing is used to measure arm muscle explosive power, and (3) one-handed penalty shooting used to measure shooting ability of basketball player. The data were analyzed by using statistic analysis of Pearson Product-Moment to see whether two independent variables were related to the dependent variable with significant level α=0.05. The result of the research showed that (1) there was a significant correlation between hand-eye coordination on shooting ability (r=0.657 with tobserved=3,258 > ttable=2,145), (2) there was a significant correlation between arm muscle explosive power to shooting ability (r=0,712 with tobserved=3,794 > ttable=2,145), (3) there was a significant correlation between hand-eye coordination and arm muscle explosiveness to the shooting ability (R=0,747 with Fobserved 8,206 > Ftable 3,880).
