WHAT TO BRING TO THE COURT?

May 6, 2015

 

The beautiful thing about basketball is that you don’t need a lot of equipment to get started. A ball, a hoop and some determination are all you really need to learn how to dunk. You don’t need to have the best or the most expensive training gear – some of the most talented athletes in the world got to where they are with nothing more than “wanting it”.

WARMING UP FOR DUNKING

November 3, 2014

 

Most athletes know that a proper warm up is as must. Now, I’m sure you have all been hearing all kinds of different advice from different sources.
