This comprehensive book covers the fundamental skills that every player needs to master in order to play basketball successfully. Written in an easy-to-understand style, the volume provides a thorough description of each skill and technique, and presents helpful coaching points that emphasize common mistakes. It presents several learning drills for each of the skills, which progress from beginner level through to the intermediate and more advanced levels, thus catering for the needs of players of all abilities. Catching and passing the ball, dribbling, shooting, rebounding, individual moves - such as defensive stance and fakes - as well as combination play between two or three players, and team-attacking and team-defence are all addressed in considerable detail.
