Basketball, just like any sport, is important for any child during their development and growth. Basketball can be played by both boys and girls and men and women. Organized kid’s teams start as early as 6-7 years old. Basketball promotes team work, team spirit and helps get children into better physical shape.

Not only do people play organized basketball in some sort of league but it is also played in a pick up format. Pick up basketball can be played by just showing up to the park and getting in a game among people who you may or may not know. As an added bonus playing basketball is a great way of meeting other people whether in organized leagues or during the weekend at outdoor pick up games at the park. Quite often, people who meet each other on the basketball court end up being off the court friends further down the road. These relationships can last many years, which all begin on the basketball court.

Basketball is a great sport, since you don’t always need someone else to play with to enjoy the game. You can practice shooting free throws, dribbling the ball and do some wind sprints to keep you in shape. Even playing with one other person is a lot of fun and there are many games like five-three-one and horse that you can play for hours at a time, while trying to improve your shot. If you find a few other people, you can play two on two, three on three or five on five. You can choose to either play full court games or half court which demands less running. There is just so much flexibility in getting out there and playing.
