Toddler basketball training methods


1. Bounce the ball on the spot:

The concept of : refers to children who use one hand to slap a ball bouncing off the ground continuously with one hand, which is called a bounce. The in-situ bounce motion is composed of four links: body posture, arm motion, ball drop, and hand and foot coordination.

(1) Body Posture When playing a ball, young children should keep their feet up and down naturally, bend their knees slightly, lean their upper body slightly forward, and look at the basketball. (When your level is improved, you need to look ahead.) The non-dribbling arm is bent and raised flat to protect the ball. The amplitude of footsteps and the flexion of the joints of the lower limbs vary with the speed and height of the dribble.

(2) Arm movements When hitting the ball, open the five fingers and touch the ball with the fingers and the parts above the base of the fingers and the outer edge of the palm, without touching the ball with the palm.

(3) The falling point of the ball Children should learn to control the falling point of the ball when dribbling, so that the ball can be kept in a position that can be controlled in front of him. Marks can be drawn on the ground. Require young children to control the ball within the range of the marker.

2. Dribbling between the roads:

concept: the child continuously slaps the ball bounced from the ground with one hand while moving, which is called a dribble on the move.

(1) Straight dribble: Dribble back and forth in a straight line, first walk slowly, and learn how to control the basketball. You can jog and dribble after getting familiar. Toddlers with a certain foundation can be required to run and dribble at full speed.

(2) Dribble around the ice cream bucket: Children learn to dribble around the ice cream bucket (or other markers) on the basis of familiarity with dribbling. The ice cream bucket is separated by 2 meters. Children are required to develop their left and right hands in an all-round way, using the right hand on the right side of the ice cream bucket and the left hand on the left side. After going around the ice cream bucket, dribble back to the starting point at full speed.

3. Pass the ball with both hands in front of the chest

Concept: Passing the ball with both hands in front of the chest is the most basic and most commonly used basketball passing technique. Generally pass the ball in front of the chest with both hands in mid- and close-range sports. Because of its short passing distance, high accuracy, and easy control, it is the easiest passing skill for young children to master among many passing skills.

Technical movement analysis: When a child holds the ball, the two hands and five fingers are naturally separated, the thumb forms a figure eight, the side and back of the ball are held above the base of the finger, the palm is free, the elbows are naturally bent on the side of the body, and the ball is placed in front of the chest. Relax the shoulder, arm, and wrist muscles, keep your eyes on the pass target, and keep your body in a basic standing position.

Training method:

(1) Passing the ball against the wall: The teacher can draw a mark on the wall, parallel to the child's chest, let the child pass the mark, and ask the ball to hit the mark as much as possible.

(2) Two-person pass: Toddlers stand in groups of two, standing face to face, passing and catching the ball at a distance of two meters. The receiver must reach out and take the initiative to catch the ball.

(3) Triangular pass: Triangular pass is one of the games of the Guangzhou Children’s Basketball Exchange Flower Fair. In the triangle pass, one person is added on the basis of two people, and the interval is also two meters. Children are required to stand in the hula hoop and pass or catch the ball with their feet not crossing the hula hoop.

(4) On-the-go passing: On-the-go passing is a difficult technique to master in the infant stage. It requires children to have good coordination, strength and passing foundation. Require young children to pass and catch the ball at close range first. Step by step, slowly spread the distance.

Sports and learning are both a persevering process. Playing basketball is the same. Perseverance is the key. Even if your child doesn't know how to play basketball or doesn't play well, it doesn't matter.
