Playing basketball helps children learn basic coordination and team-building skills with an added bonus of making new friends along the way. Learning to play basketball involves dribbling, throwing, catching and pivoting. These techniques improve gross motor skills by using major muscle groups. Students who play basketball improve flexibility and endurance. Your child will also benefit from improved fine motor skills, such as hand-eye coordination. Playing basketball also improves a child’s ability to communicate and solve basic logic problems. Young athletes learn from an early age how to work in a team atmosphere, pay attention to others, and respond accordingly.
