Drills for Beginner’sUpdatedFriday September 17, 2021 byErin Young.
Kingston Lakers Coaches all agree that FUNdamentals are key. Don't skip if your child shows early eagerness or abilities. Plenty of times, proper shooting form, lay ups on both sides of the court, and dribbling well with both hands are over-looked.
if you have a child who is eager to play, it is ok to show them the basics, and encourage them to do them slowly until they do them correctly. Lower a basketball net( if you have that option) to have your player practice proper shooting form. As they get stronger, you can raise the net and have them move away from hoop. Continuing to practice the proper shot form.
Have fun together and remember it is ok if they get frustrated, continue to encourage.
