1Hey Coach,
I didn't make the basketball team at school this year. Since then, I participated in the YMCA's program and signed up for a summer basketball camp. Could you please tell me ways that I can train at home to improve my skills?

Hey cloud8grl

You can start your training by taking a lesson from the Michael Jordan textbook. MJ used to dribble a basketball everywhere he went - to school, to the store, to his friends' homes. When his strong hand got really good, he started to dribble with his weak hand so it would improve. Obviously, this won't guarantee you a career in the NBA, but it's a good place to start. The more you handle the ball and practice your game, the better you'll become.

    You should try to play sports other than basketball this summer. Playing soccer, tennis or golf will keep you in shape and also help improve skills that are important to basketball, such as mental focus, foot speed and team play. Trying other sports can also help you avoid "burning out" on b-ball.

    Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    It's hilarious how people compare these two. Ronaldo is all about that hard work and when it comes to who is the best player in the world, it's undoubtedly him But then again, Leo Messi is a touch of god's perfection. We have to understand, we'll never ever see a player like him. Ronaldo is only the best player in the world because Leo Messi is from another planet. #TeamMESSI ♥
