Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world and also one of the most widely watched. Its a fast moving game with a lot of variety including shooting, dribbling, passing rebounding, defence and much more. As is the case with any game, the more you know, the more fun you have watching it and playing it. The Ottawa Shooting Stars is dedicated to increasing players and their fans’ knowledge of the game. With increased knowledge comes increased quality of play and increased enjoyment too.
Even if you played basketball as a child or still play, you can enhance your child’s capacity to enjoy the game, through knowledge of it. The more you know about factors such as nutrition, sleep, training and even burn out, the better equipped you are to support your child to make the most of their sport. The better equipped your child, as a player, the better the season they’ll have.
Basketball is a game that only gets better as your knowledge of “how to play” increases. On-the-court strategies are even smarter when accompanied by off-the-court strategies. Your coach and parents are doing everything possible to ensure you have a great season. Make sure you do your part by learning how to play basketball to your fullest potential.
