Build hand signals so passes are more successful. One things that’s frustrating in basketball is passing to a teammate while they try heading to the basket. Players should use hand signals often when available for a pass. If there is no signal, the player should not make the pass to them.

TIP! Play basketball against yourself even during the off-season. Though basketball is surely a team sport, there may be times when you have nobody to play against.

Make sure your fingers are apart from one another when dribbling. This keeps it under control. Do not allow the palm of your hand to make contact with the ball. Only your fingers should touch it during a pass or when dribbling.

TIP! Footwork is the best way to find an opening shot. While physical positioning is important, it is even more essential to move quicker than an opponent.

Practice is the key to learning anything, so practice often to help improve your game.
