Basketballs

The sport of basketball was started in 1891 in Canada by James Naismith, a Canadian physical education instructor. He was the physical education teacher at Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts (1890 to 1895). He was in search of an indoor game for the winter months. The game was a combination of football, soccer and hockey and the first basketball was actually soccer ball. Teams had nine players and the goals were wooden peach baskets fastened to the wall. In the beginning the peach basket bottom was intact and the referee had to climb a ladder to retrieve the ball after each basket. The game of basketball has grown in popularity over the years to be one of the most favored sports in the world.

Some fun basketball drills compliments of Stack.com & Bob Foley:

 

Weak hand: Most players can dribble okay with their strong hand, but the great ball handlers can dribble with either hand. Try dribbling using only your weak hand. It won’t be easy at first, but keep at it. Your weak hand will become stronger and soon you will be able to use it in a game. You can do this by just dribbling around and only using your weak hand.

 

Moving on out: Start around 5 feet from the basket. Take shots until you make 4 in a row (you can change this to 3 or 5 depending on your skill level). Once you have made 4 in a row, take a step back. Keep doing this until you reach the free throw line. Now do the same drill from an angle on each side of the basket. Make shots by banking the ball.

 

FIVE IN A ROW  Start directly in front of the basket and shoot the ball from 6 feet. When you make 5 in a row, take a step back. Continue moving back 1 step each time you make 5 in a row

If you spend a little time watching youth games, practices, or pick up games in this country…. you’ll see that most young players use the wrong size basketball.

And using the wrong size often leads to bad shooting habits (incorrect technique).

This is partly because most websites (and basketball manufacturers) give recommendations that are frankly out of whack.

Some basketball drills to try out from Stack Training Center:

 

Around the legs: Keep the ball low and dribble quickly around your legs and feet while standing still. You can even do a figure eight around both legs. Be sure to switch hands as you move to each side.

Cone drill: Set up cones (anything you can dribble around will work) in a line. Dribble between the cones switching hands with a strong cross-over dibble at each cone. Try dribbling fast on one pass and then keep the ball low on the next.

Speed drill: Work on dribbling at full speed. Dribble as fast as you can in one direction. Try to keep your head up and not look at the ball. Use your right hand in one direction and then your left on the way back. Time yourself to see if you are improving.
