Basketball Skills – Learn How to Play BASKET Basketball
BASKETBALL is an international sport, whose origins can be traced back to France during the nineteenth century. As time passed, the sport of BASKETBALL has expanded to several countries across the world. It has even spread into the United States, Australia and Canada. The game of BASKETBALL is very popular worldwide and it is also known as Floorball in some countries. Though originally only played by men, today BASKETBALL has been introduced into the sporting world by women who love the game and wish to play it even though it is only played by men.
BASKETBALL is a team game where two teams, usually of around five members each, against one another on a circular court with the goal of Shooting the ball through the opponents’ hoop with as little distance as possible. Each player has a basketball that is attached to a stick that is called the Dribble Stick or to be more precise the BASKETBALL. The object of the game is to have the ball land in your opponent’s basket, called the BASKETBALL within the playing time period (which is usually a minimum of two minutes for regulation and half-court games). If the ball does not land in the basket, the winner is the team with the most BASKETBALL marks won. BASKETBALL continues until one team is left without any BASKETBALL marks, after which the game is over and the winner is the team with most BASKETBALL points scored.
BASKETBALL is played by using three types of BASKETBALL equipment which are called the BASKETball hoops (also called as Double-azines, Air-Bags, or the Pole-hung BASKETball Trays), the BASKETball Floor, and the BASKETball Pole. The HOLE is where the BASKETball players are sitting; it is circular shaped and has two holes on each side for the players to pass through to their basket. Each team starts with a full round ball inside the hoop, which is called the BASKETball. This is then raised up to the surface, surrounded by a net or a basket, and then the BASKETball is shot into the hoop using a BASKETball Stick which is provided with all teams.
Each team has a pre-set schedule of BASKETball plays, which can be adjusted to meet the needs of the players. The players are divided into two teams, and they play against each other in two five-minute halves. Each team gets five chances to make a basket using the BASKETball played in the allotted halves. There are several different plays in BASKETball but they include dribbling, shooting, back-and-forth passing, and passing and shooting team BASKETball drills. Shooting team drills require the players to stand one and a half arms lengths apart from each other and place the shooting tips between their legs. Shooting team drills include making three-point shots, long-range shots, and shots off the glass.
Dribbling drills involve the players moving within a circle, without stepping off the floor, to deliver the ball to a teammate that is in position to take a shot. A free throw drill requires five players positioned around the rim of the BASKETball court. Each player is given five tries at making a free throw without making a pass or shooting the free throw pole. If they make at least two free throws, they win the game.
BASKETball players are given a BASKETball hoop and a basketball ball. The BASKETball loop is equipped with a net that surrounds the entire basketball. Players have a two-step procedure to make a three-point shot. First, they step onto the rim and make a front step to receive the ball and stand one foot in front of the hoop with one foot in the shooting corner. Then, they make two steps to the left and make a right turn to shoot the ball.
