How to become a starter on your basketball team

In this article today, I’d like to talk about a few tips, tricks, and techniques that anyone can use to become a starter on their basketball team.

Basketball is the most exciting game in the world, unfortunately there are only five spots on the team and everyone else sits on the bench. Competition for those five spots can be fierce, so how do you make sure you’re one of the starting five? This is exactly what I would like to talk about in this article today.

Basketball coaches look for only a few things when selecting their teams. First, they look for athletic ability and second, they look for skill. Anything you can do to improve your abilities in these two areas can help ensure your spot on the team.

Over the years I have developed a nearly foolproof method that people can use to become a beginner. It takes an incredible amount of work, but it’s worth it.

In the lower levels of basketball, such as junior high and high school, athletic ability is not as prevalent as it is in college basketball and the NBA. So if you can stand out as an incredibly athletic person, then you immediately have a better chance than everyone else on your team. There is a fairly easy way to become more athletic and that is through distance running.

You should make it a habit to run every morning before school. Ideally, you should aim for a 4-mile run, but it may take some time to build up the strength for that, so start with a 2-mile jog and slowly build up to three, four, or even five miles. This can be incredibly difficult for most people, but if you stick with it, you will be amazed at the results. If your school has a cross country team, I suggest you join. Cross country season is usually in the fall before basketball season starts, making it a great way to get ready for the season and get in shape quickly.

Then you need to focus on your skills and that means practicing every day. You should focus on shooting for at least 2 to 4 hours every day after school. Pick 10 spots on the basketball court and shoot baskets at those spots until you make 10 in a row at each spot, then move on to the next spot. This can be very difficult at first, so you may need to start with just five in a row from each position and then gradually build up to 10 in a row. Select a variety of different points throughout the floor, including three arrows. You should also make 50 free throws every day to increase your free throw shooting skills.

These two things; building your stamina by running cross country and building your shooting by practicing making 10 baskets in a row from different places on the floor will have an incredible effect on your overall game and will almost guarantee you a starting spot on the team no matter what. The hard part is having the discipline to stick to the plan, but as long as you do good things will happen.
