Start your training preparation by completing cardio and agility training. This is typically the first phase of any team try out scenario and is the first opportunity to impress a coaching staff. Mixing up sprints, long distance runs and agility drills will get you on the fast track.

Dribble down the court length with your right hand only, then use only your left. Ball handling is a must.


Answer by  Mario31 (136)

Being in shape is very important, as basketball is a game of endurance. You should also work on dribbling fundamentals (dribbling with both hands, with two basketballs), passing, shooting (short, and mid-range, possibly long-range), as well as knowing the rules of the game, which you can then use to your advantage. Knowing what position you play makes it more easier.
