The work studies the accuracy of performance of basketball shots and specifics of electrical activity of muscles when performing basketball shots under partial sensory deprivations. 40 male athletes, mean age - 21.06 ± 1.97 years, were examined. All research subjects were right-handed, did not have any disorders of vestibular, visual and motor systems. They were split into two groups based on the level of development of motor skills in the «free throw standing and jumper» exercises. The study group consisted of 20 students, who trained in the university's basketball section, the refernce one included 20 students and who trained in compliance with the conditioning physical education program. It has been established that in the absence of motor skill visual analyzer is crucial for ensuring corrective actions, visual deprivation violates coordination of all muscle groups and reduces the throw performance. The role of the visual analyzer is reduced in athletes, the reafference from vestibular and muscle-joint analyzers comes to the fore. The disorganization of muscular activity is expressed to a much lesser degree and is local.
