Pre-season practice
For those that played Volleyball:
The skills of volleyball are closely related to those of basketball, such as jumping, timing, ball handling, use of fingertips, balance, and team play. These skills provide a stepping stone to basketball.
 
The first week:
The first week of practice will consist of drills and running. Basketball running is described as dashes, spurts, or short sprints, and change of direction. We will cover many of the basketball fundamentals. We will use fundamentals such as body balance, ball handling, and peripheral vision drills. This is the time for good conditioning. This is the foundation on which to build a winning basketball team. We will start implementing some basic plays

The second week: 
We will cover many of the basketball fundamentals and drills. We will start detailed instruction on plays.
