Getting ready for a Basketball Tryout

Hey there you lovely people, how are you all doing today. Welcome back to my sports and fitness blog, glad you all could join me today. My youngest son today is trying out for our city’s all-star youth basketball team so we have been training for the past month to get him ready. Because I am an amazing dad I found lots of sports training equipment at rock bottom prices from that I think has been making a big difference.  Now that his tryouts are around the corner (and we are positive he will make it) I thought I would share what we did in case anyone else has tryouts soon.

Get your own Backboard

This should be a no brainer to anyone who wants so actually pursue basketball past their junior varsity team. Having a backboard somewhere on your property with even a ten foot area of tarmac around it is great for practise. It allows you to train your three point throws, layups and most importantly your dunks. I found a pre-owned basketball backboard online at that looks amazing overtop out garage door.

Get the Right Shoes

Basketball shoes are different from the cleats that you wear in other sports for one reason( other than the spikes) and that reason is that people wear them as normal shoes. That means that you have to be careful when buying basketball shoes because you have to find a pair that is meant for the court. My son wears used shoes because he prefers some older styles, so we found these cheap basketball shoes on

Go to the Gym

Basketball is something that people don’t normally associate with work outs but a steady gym schedule is important in all sports. Since my son is under 16 I went with him to the gym which also meant that I could help him with his exercises. We went to Gold’s gym which allows you to customize your lifts on the machines for your height and age, meaning that his muscles don’t get as overworked.

Eat Right

Proper nutrition is one of the most important parts about developing as an athlete and it doesn’t get discussed enough. Super Bowl quarterback Tom Brady has a very specific diet that he says allows him to continue playing at a high level at his age, and it seems to be working. I know lots of athletes want to eat meat and potatoes every meal, but that won’t cut it especially when you are trying out for point guard.

Have Fun

The most important thing to remember when engaging in sports is to have fun. We play sports for the enjoyment factor involved, and that’s why professional sports are so popular as well. If no one was enjoying themselves playing or watching sports, no one would play. I hope this has been helpful to anyone planning on attending a basketball tryout, let me know if that is you and how it turned out!

  3. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
