The Origination and Rise of American Basketball

Many people follow the sport of basketball without knowledge of its rich history. Basketball, like all other sports, has a unique story of origination. James Naismith created this lively and active sport to provide children and adults with something to play inside during the cold winter months. James was a teacher at a Christian Association training school. While there, he was asked to create an indoor game that could be used for both entertainment and physical education. He began his work in the winter of 1891 by comparing sports he played as a child. One particular game had a major influence on what would later be called basketball. This game was called “Duck on a Rock” and it consisted of an individual guarding his “duck” from others. Naismith also took ideas from earlier religious traditions created by the Mayans and Aztecs.

Coaching Basketball: Competitive Practices

I recently received the following question about coaching basketball and competition in practices: I am a new coach at the HS level and I am looking for drills that will make the boys want to practice (instead of scrimmages) and I also want to create a program where the boys are “not afraid to fail”. An example is where I have witnessed coaches make the players run if they miss a lay-up and so on. I do not want that kind of program, I want to reward them for getting back up and trying again and again. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
