Some say defence is the most important part of the game because it's what wins you the game. The first thing you need to know about defence is defensive slides. You have to be low so you can move faster and your arms out in the passing lane. With defensive slides you have to slide along with the person you are guarding while being close enough to create pressure on the ball handler, but not too close to where they can just go right past you. If you are not guarding the ball you must always have your eyes on the ball and your person.
It is also important for making forward runs as they need to be made quickly to catch the defenders off guard. Furthermore, speed helps when attempting to get past an opponent with the ball because when a skill is executed, acceleration is needed to then get away from the opponent. Co-ordination - Co-ordination is an obvious important factor when playing football because to kick the ball correctly, good co-ordination is needed. If swerve is going to be put on the ball, the foot must make contact with it in a very specific area. If co-ordination is not at its best then this would be very difficult.
But if the midfielder is aware of his position he will not wander out of position and add stability to the team’s formation. * Balance- when being approached by an attacking player, balance is needed to force the player away from goal and to be able to tackle when the opposition attempts to beat me with the ball. Balance is also important when attempting to head the ball as good balance keeps the player steady. * Tackling- this skill enables you to be able to dispossess the... ... middle of paper ... ...ls to be a high I feel that I am not as flexible as I should be.

When I was playing and I saw an open lane to the basket, all those years of practice and play came in to focus so I could make the decision to drive to the hoop "quicker" than I could if I had never played. More importantly, when I played, I got into the game mentally and it brought out the most competitive person inside me. The more frequent this competitive person came out, the more it carried over into everyday life making me strive to do my best at everything I do.
Knowing when to attack is crucial because you have to attack at the right time or the opposition will get past you. Sometimes the attack is delayed in order to allow the other team time to dribble until the opposition has nowhere else to go and then it is easy for you to go in and attack. Knowing when to cut angles also goes hand in hand with knowing when to attack. When all possible options are cut out for the offensive player, it causes error or retreat, providing the opportunity for the defense to close in and take control over the ball. Finally, in mental defense, knowing when and how to foul is also very important.
A movement by an offensive player without the ball to gain an advantage position is known as a cut. A legal attempt by an offensive player to stop an opponent from guarding a teammate, by standing in the defender 's way such that the teammate cuts next to him, is a screen or pick. The two plays are combined in the pick and roll, in which a player sets a pick and then "rolls" away from the pick towards the basket. Screens and cuts are very important in offensive plays; these allow the quick passes and teamwork, which can lead to a successful basket. Teams almost always have several offensive plays planned to ensure their movement is not predictable.
Motion is all about spacing and cutting. “The combination of the spacing and cutting through the middle continually opens up the driving lanes” (Kelbick). Opening up the driving lanes allows for a player to drive into the basket and kick the ball back out if necessary, creating multiple scoring opportunities. Duke is extremely successful with this offense. For instance, the 2017-2018 basketball season they are averaging ninety-two points each game (Kelbick).
There are numerous different steps required to be a good basketball player. There are different aspects of the game that can drastically change the tempo of the game. Of course shooting the ball is important, but improving dribbling, defensive, and passing skills are also important. A players ability in all phases of the game is what makes them a good player. The first thing to practice on is dribbling.
The team with the ball is considered offense: the main tactic for an offense strategy is passing and moving. Another tactic is called Switch and Attack. This is where one may kick the ball to an open area on the field to give the offense a chance to regroup and form a new attack. The team not in possession of the ball is
