What is it about?

The sport is fundamentally about physical fitness and skill along with the mentality to practise, develop and succeed. Like anything, the more you practise, the better you become.

However, along the way to increase the speed in which you improve, it is advisable to practise using set Techniques and Drills.

These exercises will help you realise your true potential for which of the many Positions you are most suited to on a team and then you should focus on training for that particular team role.

For example circuit training for power forwards to increase vertical jump height or ball control exercises for the point guard who handles the ball the most when driving across court.
