Quiz the Coach :: B-Ball Courts and Conditions

Question by John Wall Rox


I play basketball on asphalt and many people say it won't help only hurt, what do they mean?


This is interesting. I would also like to know what they are talking about?!?! First of all, there are only two different types of floor where basketball is being played. One is hardwood (indoor) and the other is asphalt (outdoor).


Free Courts

Alley BallAlley Ball

All high school, college, and professional basketball is played on hardwood floors, but there isn’t a [kwlink 2785]professional basketball player that hasn’t mastered the game on an outdoor court in their hometown neighborhood. Some great players grew up playing basketball in dirty alleys shooting at milk crates. It doesn't matter what type of court you play on, but if you play anywhere you will get better.

It is true that outdoor courts can influence the style of basketball you play. In [kwlink 3909]New York City it is a common trend that players learn how to drive hard to the hoop because shooting from far distances is hard to do when the cold New York winds are blowing.


Sharp Shooting

Farmland ShootingFarmland Shooting

The state of Indiana is known as a pure shooter’s home. Why? Well, the weather in Indiana is very calm and it allows kids to practice their [kwlink 3909]jump shot with no wind to make it difficult.

Whether you play basketball on asphalt or hard wood floors, you need to practice all the time to get really good at dribbling, passing, and shooting. The greatest NBA stars have all played on major outdoor courts like [kwlink 23714]Ruckers in New York or Venice Beach in Los Angeles.
