From peach baskets at the YMCA to March Madness, Michael Jordan and LeBron James, the sport of basketball has come a long way in 125 years. Invented in America but beloved in countries from Argentina to Australia, basketball features high-flying athletic feats from alley oops to slam dunks.
Basketball required both stamina and strength of those that play it, along with the skills to handle the ball, make shots under pressure or cut off the lane to the basket on defense. From training and conditioning to practicing taking shot after shot and learning the x's and o's, it is all part of being prepared for game day.
Every book in the Preparing for Game Day series takes you through how to physically and mentally prepare for your favorite sport and provides a rundown of the steps you should take when it is time to compete.
