Basketball is a sport that puts many requirements and demands on the athletes that play it. A successful basketball player is one who is fundamentally sound and possesses the ability to dribble, pass, and shoot.
These are three skills that can and should be worked on, daily. However, they are not the only parts of the game that equate to success. Successful basketball players are also strong, quick, powerful, have good balance, and have good endurance.
But, can these characteristics be trained or worked on? Absolutely, and they are worked on here at OC Rain Basketball. We work on developing the basketball player from all aspects.
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. Or maybe the player is a great ball handler and passer, but they lack the ability to change speed and direction because of poor balance and a lack of quickness.
Finally, perhaps someone is a good fundamentally sound defender but cannot jump to the ball quick enough, or close out correctly because of poor balance, or stay with their bigger more physical opponent because of a lack of strength.
What is the solution to all of these problems?
It is really quite simple, work on everything to become a good basketball player. Here at OC Rain Basketball we combine speed, strength, and agility and the progressive skills academy all together. Up above you'll see all the training options that we have to offer. Click one and it will explain more about that course.
