DALLAS BASKETBALL TRAINING FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL PLAYERS

Dallas Basketball LessonsAn Introduction To Basketball Training For Middle School Players

Pass, catch, dribble and shoot — it sounds easy, but these are the building blocks and skills that all young players must possess. The better you can do these simple skills will only help your chances of making more teams and help you become a well- rounded basketball player.

Passing and catching is a lost art these days — and it’s not just being able to pass to a teammate that is open and waiting for the pass. It’s having the ability to pass to a teammate on the run as he’s going in for a lay-up and being able to catch the ball as you are preparing to shoot. It is also having the ability to pass to a teammate as he’s getting ready to shoot on the perimeter and being able to get the ball to him in the “shooting pocket.” Without accurate passing and being able to catch, basketball becomes a difficult game.

One must also develop the ability to dribble the ball with both hands — and in time do it against varying forms of pressure. Whether you’re a guard, forward or center being able to take a couple of dribbles to relieve pressure or using the dribble to create a shot going both directions is imperative.

Lastly, shooting at the middle school level is a challenge because of strength and maturity, but the thing that must be emphasized is proper form and footwork. When working on your jumper with a dad, coach or teammates just remember BEEF: B-balance, E-eyes, E-elbow, and F-follow through.

Balance: feet should be at least shoulder width apart, right foot slightly ahead of the left foot

Eyes: fixed on the rim

Elbow: straight up and down, not twisted out to one side or the other

Follow Through: snap your wrist, straight down towards the rim. You should be able to feel the muscles on the top of your wrist strain after each shot. Having a “goose neck” is a must for any player that considers his/her self a shooter.
