Learning The Different Steps In Playing Basketball
  • By Dan Essman

Things Needed to Play Basketball and How to Play
  • Equipment
  • Object of game
  • Length of game
  • Start off Tip Off
  • Offense Scoring, Dribbling, Passing, and How to
    run an offense
  • Defense How to play defense, Zone vs. Man to
    Man, and fouls
  • 3 Second Violation
  • Rebounds
  • Positions Guards, Forwards and Center

  • An area to play in (gym, out door court)
  • Basketball
  • 2 basketball hoops (10 ft high)
  • Proper clothes and shoes
  • 10 people on the court, two different teams, 5 on
    a team (can have more on each team)

Object of the Game
  • The object of the game is to score more points
    than the other team. In order to do so you need
    to be able to make the basketball in your hoop.

Length of the Game
  • The length of the game will vary depending on
    what league you are playing in.
  • Junior High 6 minutes, 4 quarters
  • High School 8 minutes, 4 quarters
  • College 20 minutes, 2 quarters
  • Professional 12 minutes, 4 quarters

Starting Off Tip Off
  • To start the game, the two teams line up around
    their two centers who are at the center of the
    court. Each player matches up against another
    based on height and skill (ideally). The referee
    throws the ball straight up and the two centers
    jump up to gain possession. The goal is to "tip"
    the ball to your teammate to gain possession.

  • Basketball is as an offense vs. defense game.
    When you have the ball, all members of the team
    are on offense. On offense you are trying to
    score points by shooting the ball into the
    defending team's basket. Each "field goal" or
    "basket" is worth two points. Baskets scored
    outside the 3-point line are worth 3 points.

How to Shoot
  • You want your dominate hand in the middle of the
    ball with your hand relaxed on it and the other
    hand on the side of the ball (which will guide
    the ball to go straight). When shooting you want
    to bend your knees and spring up off the ground.
    Then you want to release the ball towards the

Advancing the Ball
  • In order to advance the ball you want to be able
    to dribble the ball up the court or pass the ball
    to another teammate up the court.

  • Take the ball and bounce it on the floor in a
    continuous motion. This is dribbling. You can
    move your feet and body in any direction as long
    as you are dribbling. Once you cross mid-court,
    you cannot cross back over it.
  • Once you pick up your dribble you cannot dribble
    it again unless you pass it to someone else and
    they give it back. You can have a pivot foot when
    you pick up your dribble but you cannot pick that
    foot off the ground.

  • There are different ways in passing, either the
    bounce pass, chest pass, or a overhead pass.
  • In order to use the bounce pass and chest pass
    you want to use both hands and step towards your
    target. When you let go of the ball your thumbs
    should be pointing towards the floor.

  • The defenses' goal is to steal the ball from the
    other team. You may do this by intercepting a
    pass or stealing the ball during someone's
    dribble. You can also get a rebound that the
    opposing team misses when they shoot or by taking
    a charge. You may not make direct physical
    contact with the player in order to get the ball.
    If you do, a foul is called.

Zone vs. Man to Man
  • There are many defensive plays but these are the
    two man defenses a team will use. A zone defense
    is one that covers area, not specific persons on
    the opposing team. A Man-to-Man defense is one in
    which every player has their own man to guard.
    Zones work well against teams strong at driving
    to the hoop where as man-to-man works best on
    teams that struggle with the dribble.

Defending the Ball Handler (Click Photo for Video)
  • You are allowed five fouls per game. After you
    get five fouls, you are removed from the game.
    This rule is intended to prevent a very rough
    game. If you are fouled when shooting and miss
    the shot you could either get 2 or 3 free throws.
    If you make the shot and get fouled then you get
    to shoot only one free throw and those points

  • If you foul the other team when they are not
    shooting they just get the ball out of bounds
    unless your team has 6 fouls combined then they
    shoot an 1-1. A 1-1 is if you miss the first shot
    it is live but if you make the first shot you get
    another shot. If they have 10 or more you shoot 2
    free throws.

3-Second Violation
  • On offense, you cannot remain in the "key, which
    is the area designated underneath and directly in
    front of basket, for more than 3-seconds. If
    there is a 3-second violation, the other team
    gets the ball and you lose that possession.

  • One of the most important elements of the game is
    getting rebounds. Rebounds are the missed or
    deflected shots that are recovered by either
    team. Having a team strong in rebounding is an
    important asset.

Rebounding (Click Photo for Video)
  • There are 5 positions on a basketball team
  • 1 position is the point guard
  • 2 position is the guard
  • 3 positions is the guard/forward
  • 4 position is the forward
  • 5 position is the center

1-Point Guard
  • The point guard is the main guy that dribbles the
    ball up the court most of the time. He is usually
    the one that calls out the play. He is usually
    the smallest and fasted guy on the team.

  • The 2 guard is the guy who also can dribble the
    basketball but is one of the main shooters on the
    team. This is the go to guy if you need a quick
    shot at the end of the quarter.

  • The 3 guard/forward is also the shooter but also
    rebounds the ball a lot. He is also good at
    penetrating in the paint and getting a lay up.

  • The forward is one of the taller guys on your
    team and can either shoot the three but is also
    big to score down low in the paint. He is faster
    than the center and usually is the best big man.
    He is also a very scrappy player.

  • The center is the main guy you want to go to get
    an easy lay-up. He is the biggest and tallest guy
    on the team and is usually good at getting
    rebounds. This is the guy that you usually want
    at the tip off to get the ball first.
