Olympic Basketball - Basketball Techniques

Basketball has evolved many commonly used techniques of Shooting, Rebounding, Passing, Dribbling and Blocking, as well as specialized player positions and offensive and defensive structures and techniques. 
  • Shooting is the act of attempting to score points by throwing the ball through the basket.
  • The objective of Rebounding is to successfully gain possession of the basketball after a missed field goal or free throw, as it rebounds from the hoop or backboard.
  • A Pass is a method of moving the ball between players. Most passes are accompanied by a step forward to increase power and are followed through with the hands to ensure accuracy.
  • Dribbling is the act of bouncing the ball continuously with one hand, and is a requirement for a player to take steps with the ball. To dribble, a player pushes the ball down towards the ground with the fingertips rather than patting it; this ensures greater control.
  • A Block is performed when, after a shot is attempted, a defender succeeds in altering the shot by touching the ball.
Basketball was first showcased in the 1936 Olympic in Berlin, Germany. 2012 London Olympic will witness one of the world’s most popular team sports being played at the Basketball Arena and North Greenwich Arena. Olympic Basketball competition will be held from Saturday 28 July to Sunday 12 August, 2012. Basketball fans grab your Olympic Basketball Tickets from Sport Ticket Exchange.
