4 Essential Lessons You Can Learn from Basketball

Team Spirit

To the untrained eye, shooting seems pinnacle, but coaches and students of the game will tell you passing is often more important. That’s because basketball isn’t an individual game; it’s a team sport.

Alertness

The first thing new players learn is dribbling–not because it’s the easiest, but because it’s one of the most difficult but necessary skills in the sport.

Dribbling represents the intense concentration and discipline needed to keep the ball under control as you advance down the court. It’s a difficult exercise in concentration to do two, if not three or four things at once.

Leadership

Playing basketball gives students much more confidence. Students will need to communicate with each other and their captain on the court – leadership skills will gradually form.

Commitment

Players dedicate their time to the game. It is a commitment whether you play one year or forty years. You give that game your heart and soul. Commitment is such a valuable thing to learn.
