    Developing Strong Basketball IQ

    What is basketball IQ? While IQ in real life is defined as the score you get from any number of standardized tests. On the basketball court it’s knowing what to do on the court from a team and individual player prospective at all times.

    Strength and Conditioning

    Strength and conditioning is extremely important to improving as a basketball player. Players spend hours working on their jump shot, shooting jumper after jumper in their driveway or in a gym just to make sure they can hit shots in a game. However, if they do not possess the power to explode up and get their jumper off over a taller defender, or the endurance to have their jumper continue to fall when they are tired in the fourth quarter – all those hours of shooting may amount to nothing.

    Attention to Detail

    Training is what separates mediocre results to extraordinary results. For example the small stuff like body mechanics when your on defense, dribbling technique, shooting form on your shot, and being in the correct position to jump at all times will propel you to be the best basketball player possible.
    Here at OC Rain – we really stress that our players play attention to detail.

    Respect

    One of the most important things you can teach any basketball player is the best way to teach respect is to show respect. When a child experiences respect, they know what it feels like and begins to understand how important it is to really improve as a basketball player and a person.
    Respect is an attitude. If children don’t have respect for peers, authority, or themselves, it is almost impossible for them to succeed.

    Confidence

    You must believe in yourself if you expect others to believe in you. It’s important to be confident, but not overconfident. Have solid respect for your opponent without fear. Believe in yourself without being self-centered or intimidated.
    Confident athletes expect success and have a high level of self-belief that is crucial in how far they go to meet their goals. Confidence makes the difference that determines whether people give up or remain committed to their goals after a series of setbacks. It’s the difference between highly successful and less successful basketball players. This is what OC Rain Basketball expects out of it’s basketball players, and we work on developing this on a daily basis.
