The fundamentals of basketball are the foundation for every individual play, offensive or defensive strategy, and every move that your players make. The best players have perfected the basics of the game.
Learning and mastering these basics make the rest of the game much easier!
ABSL’s number one recommendation when coaching basketball is to focus on the fundamentals. Spend at least 75% of each practice on them.
If you make teaching your players the fundamentals your number one goal, your players will enjoy practice, they will appreciate their improvement, and they will be grateful down the line.
Like any sport, no matter what your age -- whether you're a professional athlete or a youth player just getting started -- you need strong fundamentals to be successful!
ABSL has made it a point to focus on teaching coaches what these key fundamentals are and ways that we can teach it to our young players to make it both enjoyable and full of content.
