Basketball Fundamentals

Defense First!

  1. Protect the rim/key
  2. Stop the ball, don't reach
  3. Know your check; See ball, see check
  4. Plant your feet; Slide with hands stretched out
  5. Hands up; Box out; Rebound
Note: A steal is just a bonus, reaching is too risky, results mostly in a foul, or you getting beat

On Offence

  1. Think ATTACK first; Penetrate/attack towards the basket
  2. Triple Threat: Always hide the ball
  3. Give and go; Off-ball screens
  4. When doubled, find your open teammate.
  5. Move the ball; Shoot open shots
  6. Don't know where to go? go back, get ready for defense, don't jam the key.
