An Introduction to Basketball 2

Basketball 2, An Introduction to

Basketball is a physically demanding sport that rewards polished technique and coordinated team play. In this program viewers learn more about positioning, passing, dribbling, shooting, defending, and attacking. Viewers see how a balanced initial body position - legs flexed and torso straight - will speed up reaction times for jumping, rebounding, and defending, and how proper handling of the ball, using wrists and finger tips, is essential for good dribbling, passing, and shooting. Players demonstrate several new passes that viewers can add to their arsenals, including the roll pass, behind-the-back pass, delivery pass, and hook pass. Viewers see the advantage of being able to dribble the basketball with both hands, and they learn several dribbling maneuvers designed to facilitate movement toward the basket, such as the front change, behind-the-back change, and between-the-legs change. Viewers learn new tactics for confusing the defenders, including variations of the fake and several team attack moves, such as the pass and cut, the indirect and direct blocks (picks), and the middle break. Viewers also learn the fundamentals of effective team defense. The program ends by emphasizing the importance of refining individual skills and team play through structured practice sessions that not only raise the level of performance but also increase the enjoyment of this fast-paced, confidence-building sport. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
