The Magic FUN-damentals Program is specifically designed for children playing in Under 10 domestic competitions, aiming to provide them with a solid foundation in basketball skills. Through a fun and engaging environment, this program focuses on developing the individual skills necessary for young players to excel in the game of basketball. The program places a strong emphasis on four key areas: dribbling, passing, shooting, and defense.
Children will learn the essential techniques of dribbling, including ball control, hand-eye coordination, and dribbling with both hands. They will participate in various dribbling drills and exercises that gradually progress in difficulty, helping them improve their ball-handling skills and become comfortable dribbling in different situations.
Passing is a crucial skill in basketball, and this program will provide children with the fundamentals of passing effectively. They will learn the different types of passes, such as chest passes, bounce passes, and overhead passes, and develop their passing accuracy, timing, and decision-making skills. The program will include interactive drills and small-sided games to reinforce passing techniques.
The program will focus on teaching children the proper shooting mechanics, emphasizing proper footwork, body alignment, and hand positioning. They will learn various shooting techniques, including layups, jump shots, and free throws, with a focus on developing consistency and accuracy in their shooting form. Shooting drills and game-like scenarios will be incorporated to enhance their shooting abilities.
Understanding the importance of defense, the program will introduce children to the fundamentals of individual and team defense. They will learn basic defensive stance, footwork, and positioning techniques.
