I started off helping with younger generations at the age of 14. As they were learning I was learning too. I helped at basketball clinics that happened year round teaching kids how to dribble, pass, shoot, develop fundamental skills. I started to ref basketball games starting off with five and six year olds. Then gradually worked my way up to 13/14’s as I grew older and more familiar with the game.
I do not have a specific story with her, but just creating a relationship with her inside and outside of basketball helped me get to know an amazing person on a greater level.
I was trying so hard not to mess up but I ended up messing up a couple times but I said hey no one 's perfect. The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams. At first I was really nervous I didn 't want to mess up but we started to play and a started to do what I did best which is play my game after we played a was pretty convenient in my performance but we still had the whole
And after a Mile of walking, we would be there. When we got to the brick we scaned are cards. And we went to the gym and there are Two sides one for daycare kids , and one for people to play basketball , so the other court Was open, so me and my brother went to that court because it was less crowded. So we played for about an hour, and then the daycare kids came in, so , so me and my brother Where kicked off that court.
This week I learned about topics related to shooting form, dribbling, and layups. I watched two videos by Howard Elite Basketball and ILovebasketballTV on how to get better shooting form. I learned key points like how there’s no single perfect shooting form and that everyone 's form is unique. I also learned that you generate power from your lower body, and that you should have a
Sadly, I never got chosen because “I was a girl and knew nothing about sports”. Although this upset me, I didn’t take it to heart. I started practicing at home with kids in my neighborhood. After weeks or maybe even months of practice, my older brother then noticed how good I was getting at the sport.
Updike makes widespread use of personifying. The street Flick works on is personified as “running,” “stopping,” “bending,” and being “cut off” before it has a “chance” (Updike). All of these images similarly apply to Flick. The gas pumps are personified as “idiot pumps,” similar to guards in basketball. Only Flick’s, lost in his daydreams, could pass by the pumps; imagine them as guards on a basketball team.
Following that CJ made a three- point to tie the game once again, however, of the referees argued claiming he was on the three- point line. Which put CJ’s team onto a disadvantage of 1. This still 3.1 seconds left of game time, and like it often happens, CJ earned two free throws. CJ didn’t perform any worse under pressure. He showed his ability to play under any circumstance, even if that puts a championship on the line.
When I was younger, my dad and I got season tickets to the Illini basketball season. We would go to every home game and away game if they were playing close. I would always look up to the Illini players and want to be just like them when I grew up. Every time I went to the game I would always go to the closest balcony to try and yell their names so they would look up at me.
He makes basketball seem as a mere game for little kids. He is an all-around athlete is still going strong at 30 years old. He is a big role model to many kids who enjoy playing this sport. Kobe can do anything he is a very versatile player and could get anywhere around the court in a blink of an eye. Bryant is the definition of all-around in my book.
Conversations about the Bettendorf vs North Scott basketball game, like the one Bryce and I had, were debated, discussed and argued ever since the high school basketball season had started. The vaunted Bettendorf
Last year I played basketball for the Bath team and Red Cedar team. In my last game I had 24 points, over 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks. After the game the opposing coach came up to me and asked if I wanted to join an AAU team and at the time I didn’t know what that was. He gave me his number and I learned that AAU was a league for really good basketball players.
“Why can’t we get into our freaking offense!?” This is all I really remember from Coach McKendrick at halftime last year against Niles North in what was a tough night for our basketball team. Prior to this, we beat New Trier at home and then went on the road and beat the pre-season unanimous vote to win conference, Highland Park, in our first conference game. Before the New Trier game, our game plan was simple: we were smaller, but faster, so we were going to run the court and make this is a fast pace game. We executed our gameplan, and we won.
After my first season of varsity was over I felt even more motivated to get better. I started lifting weights almost every day, even if it meant I had to go to the gym at midnight and still go to school the next morning. The summer of my senior year all I did was either work or work out, I barely spent any time with my friends. But all that work paid off for me because as my senior season approached, I found myself starting on both sides of the ball and on special
The league started during the NBA lockout a few years ago with NBA fans waiting, this was their perfect time to go watch some great basketball with some talented young players the game they most certainly
