Background: Scapular dyskinesis is prevalent in 54.5% of overhead athletes. Scapular dyskinesis is abnormal positioning of the scapula over the thorax and also abnormal motions of the scapula. Any alterations to the normal scapular position may alter the accuracy of striking and serving in basketball players. This study aims to find out the relation between the resting scapular position and the throwing accuracy of players. Results: The research suggests that there is a moderate correlation present between the resting scapular position and the throwing accuracy of the players. Conclusion: In this study, results state that the resting position of the scapula plays an important role in power generation and biomechanics of throwing in overhead athletes affecting the throwing accuracy of players.
