Research different basketball camps and or trainers before investing. Once you registered, attend the camps and take notes. Taking notes should also be utilized after purchasing basketball training DVDs. If you have decided to to invest in a trainer, talk with the trainer about your role in the developmental process. Recording important objectives, points, and progressions will be important. Showing up with a note pad while your child is at a basketball camp or video taping workout sessions or consistently examining basketball film will provide your child an opportunity to see how important it is to study the game. This will allow children to be more accepting to watch and study film of players, film discussing tactics, fundamentals, and different philosophies when they become older. It is imperative that young players understand that there is a cognitive side of sports and developing a high IQ in basketball will make them more efficient players.
Once your child has practiced certain skills, then games would allow for mastery of fundamental skills in a game setting. 3-on-3 games are the best game for novice players. This will allow players to learn how to play basketball. Players will learn about spacing, passing, pick and roll, screening and cutting while each player will have the opportunity to have more ball touches. This also will allow players to defend against the skills named above. Once the player has become proficient with executing these different skills in a half court setting, it would then be time to start playing full court basketball.
This ideal may sound odd but parents who focus on the long term process will allow there child to grow and become better basketball players, while ensuring there child does not burn out. This developmental process is completely opposite of the United States model but followed throughout Europe. Europe has earned a reputation of teaching and developing fundamentally sound players. Players are not rushed on a court to play games and can barely dribble and do not understand the concept of traveling. This is counterintuitive and will allow players to practice and strengthen bad habits. However, if time is taken to strengthen fundamentals a players self-esteem will grow and the game will be more fun for the player. By focusing on the development and not games played, you can ensure that your child will become fundamentally sound intelligent basketball player, who loves the game of basketball.
Players who practice more and play less will become strengthen there fundamentals, allow there body to rest,
More time practicing, less time playing (4-6 workouts for every game) one to two practices for every game
allow a developmental process so that kids do not get burned out
