Take your daughter to a game!!!

It's a little different watching a game, than on the floor. Most people watch the ball and the shot, try not watching the ball and look at the other players trying to get open and set up the play. Or watch the defense and how they communicate and guard the person or a zone.

What can my child do at home?

How to help your child:
  • conditioning - a big thing, have them do laps around the house. It is hard to concentrate on the skill at hand if they are working too hard to keep up. I usually tell them to run around the house 5 times without stopping everyday when they get home from school.
  • dribbling - have them dribble the ball for 10minutes or so instead of watching TV. 70% of the game is ball movement, being able to handle the ball well is a must. Just walking around dribbling and not looking at the ball will increase their skill (even if its only 5 minutes)
  • passing - pass with them for a few minutes, chest pass and bounce pass. SSP (squeeze, step, push)
  • shooting - you don't need a hoop to develop your shooting muscles, just pushing the ball up(with proper form) in the air improves their control and strength.
  • bottom line - every little bit helps, you don't have to set aside an hour, just when there is 5 minutes of "being bored" pick the ball up and dribble.

                        10ft for 5th/6th grade
