Same problem here as Darrel, everyone wants to use the big balls, on the big nets, thinking somehow this will get them dunking in no time Parents don''t take into account the natural progression and strength building children go through enough.
My 8-year old daughter was just told to bring a I couldn't believe it. My 8th grade team 14 year olds use Wish they would reference your chart. Upward uses the exact same chart, I've been an Upward Director for 10 yrs, with any league, individuals may not be as informed as they should be I bet Larry bird didnt shoot with those little balls when he was a kid. Did they even have them balls back in the day? All the best shooters are old school players.
Very doubtful they used that chart. Not a relevant comment when we are talking about developing skills for the majority of players. This chart is great for development of technically sound shooting form. Kids will compensate for the additional weight of the wrong size ball which creates bad shooting habits, period. I've seen it as a coach from K through 6A varsity. I'd also point out that back in the day when Bird played, kids didn't play us much.
Now you have kids playing as young as 5 year olds and some 8 year olds are playing 50 games a year. There are so many more games and clubs now than ever before.
I didn't even play basketball until middle school and I'm quite a bit younger than Bird. Things were much different when I was a kid and basketball was more of an older players sport back then. We live in a different world today and making adjustments makes sense. I think this chart is great. Maybe the best shooters are old school players because they didn't start playing basketball until they were older and thus used an age appropriate ball?
I also think a big part of it has to do with the media and a different emphasis on basketball. Now you see dunks and behind the back passes on Sports Center. Years ago shooting was emphasized. Today athleticism and fancy 1on1 moves are emphasized. I also believe that older players never had a three point line. This really influences today's kids to shoot way beyond their range thus developing poor shooting mechanics.
How about ages and goal heights? How about 3 on 3 instead of 5 on 5 at younger ages also? We have other articles that preach that as well. Here are a few of them: In Western PA Yea that's too bad.
We see the same thing around here in Iowa with tournaments and club teams. I think that's a big reason that by the time I get kids in high school so many of them have shooting technique that is really messed up.
They drop their shoulder, twist their body, etc. And they learn bad habits that stick with them through high school. I help administer a league of players, boys and girls, in grades Would that make sense? And, is it possible to find the youth ball size 4 in a composite or leather material? Dan - I think what you propose is definitely a step in the right direction.
I'd still like to see 5th graders using the But you might get push back because people are not used to that. Almost everyone uses So it might take a little "selling". I have not been able to find a size 4 composite or leather ball. However the Mikasa rubber ball does not seem like rubber. It looks and feels more like composite material and I personally would not hesitate to use that as a game ball. I don't think anyone would even think it is made of rubber. I know some leagues use that same ball.
Here's the link to the size 4 Mikasa I'm talking about. I'm assuming that's an older picture that Mikasa sent us.
