There is no such thing as a wrong foot. It should be called goofy foot. That is the problem with coaches after they teach young kids the basics on how to plant their inside foot and drive their outside knee toward the basket.

If you are coming in from the right side, you will essentially be shooting a left-handed lay-up on the left side using the same footwork you would use for any left-handed lay-up - plant and jump off your right foot (inside foot) and your left knee and leg come up.
Shoot the ball in one smooth motion from the ready position to the follow through. Concentrate on shooting the ball UP first, then OUT. Once again, shoot the ball UP, then OUT, (Think about shooting out of the top of a telephone booth.) Concentrate on getting more power out of your legs.
