Learn the fundamentals skills and drills at Eanna Basketball.
The fundamentals of basketball have remained the same throughout the world and continue to be practised by underage and professional basketballers alike, who wish to maintain and improve their skills. Even with the most effective plays, neglecting the basic skills of passing, dribbling , shooting and lay ups will result in missing easy shots and unforced errors and ultimately the loss of games. A strong foundation is particularly important for young and new players to understand the principles of the game and to be clear about their responsibilities to their team mates. With basic and short drills designed to provide and maintain these skills, the young player will progress and improve their skills and enjoyment of the game as they see real improvement in their skills. For this reason, Eanna Basketball Club have initiated a programme for our underage players to ensure they know and continue to practice these necessary but enjoyable training drills. This will also facilitate the transition from team to team of our young players who will join a new team knowing the drills and the basic plays required making the adjustment and integration easier for the player and the team.
