just believe that you can make it and do a simple shooting workout

20 layups with each hand
20 elbow shots on each side
and 20 free throws

Only Perfect Practice makes Perfect.  Find a resource to break down the perfect shooting technique (book, internet, coach),  memorize the technique and then practice that technique perfectly until you do it without thinking.

Your mind and your muscles have memory and if they are taught to do something incorrectly they will always do it incorrectly.

As for jumping- sprints do a lot to help with fast twitch muscle strength.

Practice, practice, practice, practice, practice.  Get some instruction from a good technical teacher if possible.  PLay the game, etc.
Also practice. And practicing helps too.
