Five Easy Tips To Make The Basketball Team

Jul 10, 2008
As I am sure you are getting prepared for this up coming basketball season, there are a lot of little easy things you can and should be doing to guarantee you will make the final cut. I have been receiving tons of emails lately asking if I have any tips or secrets on how to make a basketball team. Unfortunately, not every one is as talented as Lebron or Kobe, and it can be a pretty difficult challenge especially if you live in a big city or go to a big school.

Since I have been getting so many emails on this topic, I have put together 5 Tips To help you get on any basketball team. Put these tips to use and you will be thanking me in a couple of weeks when you make your team! Lets get started... Okay first things first. You have to realize why most coaches choose certain players. They are only concerned with a player that will help the team. And it necessarily doesn't always have to be talent or skill level. One of the great assets Steve Nash brings is the confidence he instills in his teammates.Every time one of them falls down, he runs to pick them up. When one of them makes a mistake, he pats them on their shoulder and tells them not to worry about it. When they do something right, he is the first one to applaud them. Do you do these things? Do you make your teammates feel better when they play with you? I guarantee you if you can develop this kind of maturity, your coach will love you. Here are my 5 tips:

Tip # 1:
Show up to the try-outs super early, already warmed up and stretched and ready to go.

Tip # 2:
Look around to see what most of the other kids are good at, are there a lot of shooters, scorers, ball handlers. Whatever there is a lot of, try to focus on what there isn't a lot of.Like are there a lot of great defenders, hustlers? If there is not, make it your main focus to try as hard as you can on defense and bust your butt.

Tip # 3:
Show the coach that you would be a great addition to his team, either by skill, intelligence, or being a team leader.

Tip # 4:
Get to know the coach as much as possible. Develop a off the court relationship. Find out why they are coaching, and why they love the sport.

Tip # 5:
Don't be afraid, show confidence, show them you are willing to put in the time to improve, and most importantly, show them you love playing basketball. These 5 tips are basic, but it could determine whether or not you make the team, or have to wait until next year to try out again.

P.S.Instead of worrying about making the team, how would you like to become the most dominant all-star your rivals have ever seen? Grab your free All-Star ballers crash course and discover the basketball training secrets of the most unstoppable hoops stars known to man.
