How to Develop Basketball Skills for Youth
Are you a parent of pre-teen or teenage children? If so, chances are pretty good that you have some idea of what kind of sports curriculum your child’s school offers.
It’s a good bet that unless it’s a large urban high school the sports department is severely lacking in resources as well as help. More than one youth sports program has risen out of this kind of adversity.
Whether you are interested in developing a full-blown neighborhood program or just helping your own kids sharpen their skills “Shootin’ Hoops” is a great jumping off point (pun intended).
“Shootin’ Hoops” is a clear, concise handbook on basketball basics as they apply to youth. You can print out pages that apply specifically to the skill you want to target with your students.
