Shooting

Shoot, Ball handling and Scoring basics explained by Steph Curry.

The BEEF Shooting Method “BEEF” is an acronym for the four major components of correct shooting. It stands for Balance, Eyes, Elbow, and Follow-through. Let’s go over each one to see how they should be taught to players.

Passing

  • 2-HANDED CHEST PASS: A pass used for short, fast passing
  • 2-HANDED OVERHEAD PASS: good for closely-guarded players.
  • 1-HANDED OVERHEAD/BASEBALL PASS: a long pass from any position on the court.
  • BOUNCE PASS: passing the ball between players.

Man-to-man

Defence

In the player-to-player (“man-to-man”) system, gaurding the ball is next priority. Each player guards a player from the opposing team in order to keep the opposition from scoring.

Blocking Foul

A blocking foul occurs when the defensive player has not established their position with both feet on the ground and their torso square facing the opponent. As a defender, you can’t be sliding into position as contact is made, nor can you lean into the offensive player as they try to pass as that will be considered blocking and you will be given the foul. A blocking foul can result in a free throw.

Blocking

Defence

A block or blocked shot occurs when a defensive player legally deflects a field goal attempt from an offensive player to prevent a score.

Technical/flagrant Fouls

A technical foul is assessed to a player, coach, or team typically for unsportsmanlike conduct (such as arguing with an official or taunting an opponent) and does not usually involve physical contact with an opponent while the ball is in play.A flagrant foul involves excessive or violent contact that could injure the fouled player. A flagrant foul may be unintentional or purposeful.

The type of shot a player takes often depends on the style of offense. The fast-break offensive style (fast movement & passing from end to end); or the slower, more deliberate play (more thoughtful actions). Shot types being reviewed in this unit:

Rules of Basketball

A basketball team has 5 players per team on the court at any one time. Player positions consist of:

  • a center
  • two forwards
  • two guards.
The forwards are positioned near the opposing team’s basket so that they can be ready for shooting and rebounding. The center is located near the basket or near the free-throw line so that he/she can be ready for shooting and rebounding. Guards normally bring the ball down the court to begin offensive play.

“Dribbling” - the ball means bouncing it onthe floor repeatedly with one hand.

Gameplay

Basketball

The game begins with a jump ball. The referee tosses the ball into the air. As it comes down, one player from each team jumps upward in an attempt to tap the ball to a teammate. Once the ball is in play, team members dribble/pass the ball to get closer to the basket.

The game of basketball is easy to understand. Players try to prevent their opponents from scoring while each team tries to get the ball through the basket that the other team is defending. Although the game is not difficult to understand, a tremendous amount of mental and physical endurance and skill is required from the five players on each team.

Zone

Defence

The zone system uses each player as a guard, protecting a specific zone near the basket that his/her team is defending. Guarding the ball is more important than any particular player in this type of defense.

Fouls & Violations

There are two types of fouls in basketball—

  • Personal fouls: A personal foul means that a player holds, pushes, or trips an opponent.
  • Technical fouls: A technical foul may occur when the game is delayed, too many time-outs are taken, players leave or enter the court illegally, or participate in misbehavior such as disrespect toward the referee.

Introduction to Basketball

Basketball is an extremely popular sport. It is the 3rd ranked watched sport in the United States. Baseball and Football hold 1st & 2nd. It is played in driveways, parking lots, back yards, streets, high schools, colleges and professional arenas.

In 1891, a physical education instructor at a YMCA Training School in Massachusetts invented basketball as an indoor activity for boys. The game began with two peach baskets tied to balconies and a soccer ball used to shoot baskets. Two years later, two college teams began to play a new game, basketball. The game’s popularity has increased continuously ever since. College recruitment is still the main avenue for athletes to transition to the NBA.

History of the Game

The National Basketball Association (NBA) is 1 of the 4 largest professional sports leagues in teh world. It was created when the Basketball Association of America and the National Basketball League merged in 1949.

Charge/Offensive foul

Personal contact against the body of an opponent by a an offensive (attcking) player with the ball.To be more specific. If a dribbler or shooter runs into an (defensive) opponent who already has established their defensive position, a charge can be called.A turn over of the ball to the opposing team occurs.

Dribbling Violations

  • Double dribble: dribbling with two hands at the same time or stopping dribbling and then starting again.
  • Traveling: walking or running without dribbling the basketball.
  • Carrying: turning the ball over in your hand to make it easier to control or dribbling above shoulder.
  • Over & Back/back court violation -A team in control of the ball in its front court cannot maintain or regain possession of the ball if it enters the back court, unless a defensive player has touched it.

“Passing” - throwing the ball to a teammate. Passing is vital to scoring plays. In fact, most professionals consider good passing to be almost as important as accurate shooting.
