As the first true “team skill” players learn, developing passing is crucial at youth levels. Young teams will often struggle to dribble and drive effectively, making passing the best way to move the ball around the court early in development.
Such a classic. And with good reason too.
Simple, adaptable, and fun – Simon Says is one of the most successful group games ever. Not only that, Simon Says is ideal for developing dribbling and footwork, and all anyone needs to play is a basketball.
