This game will teach players to be aware of where they are on the court, while developing coordination skills and ball handling. This game is also very easy to teach and lots of fun for the players. Basket Wall Ball will provide players the opportunity to improve their dribbling skills in a game-like scenario.
To set-up, players should find a partner and have one basketball. Each player is competing against their partner and the objective of the game is to either score or hit the rim/backboard.
The key teaching point of this game is to ensure that players keep their dribble alive and to encourage players to keep their eyes and head up at all times.
