What are essential oils? They are highly concentrated natural oils found in plants! They are accessible to everyone, including infants, children, teens, parents, and so on. Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications, and are a natural tool to help maximize training and performance. The benefits for using essential oils are endless, but there are some benefits that caught my eye for athletes specifically.
Ever wonder how some players seem to get so good at dribbling under pressure, while others struggle for years? Well, the answer is nothing special, they simply practice.
Tag games are just the best. There are just SO MANY OPTIONS! With seemingly unlimited variety, and a ton of benefits to the development of fundamental movement skills, tag games are a favorite way to warm-up players or break up the monotony of a basketball practice.
Often times players practice dribbling without a defender. And this might cause them some trouble when they do face pressure in a scrimmage or game. It requires a mix of court awareness and comfort with the ball (i.e. eyes up when you are dribbling!).
A true staple, Dribble Knockout is one of the most popular youth basketball games out there. And with good reason. It is FUN!
We always love modified games. Modified games help to shape or adjust play to incorporate and develop a specific skill. All the while maintaining the fun of a game, instead of feeling like a drill designed just to get in lots of reps.
Ball Tag is a textbook example of a successful modified game.
