Quiz the coach helps teens and tweens with sports and fitness related issues and problems like obesity, healthy eating questions, skateboard tricks and P.E. dilemnas. - Page 5

So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?

1Hey Coach,
I want to have an NBA career when I grow up. But I think I might not make it because I have a problem hitting shots and I'm not a good ball-handler. But I'm good at blocking and getting rebounds and assists. I'm tall but can't jump very high. What should I do?

Hey Cubsfan21

Don't give up your dream of playing in the NBA just because you're having some problems hitting shots and dribbling the ball (players on the LA Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies have had problems hitting shots for years, but they're still hanging around the NBA.) There are lots of other NBA players, like Shawn Bradley of the Dallas Mavericks, who are tall and can block shots, but can't score, can't jump and have no idea how to dribble the ball.

The best thing for you to do is to work on improving your game in all areas and make sure you're always having fun. That may sound a bit corny, but you're not going to make it to the NBA if you're not enjoying the game. To help you get some more height on your jump, check out these jumping drills I put together for another Kidzworld peep.

For help improving your ball-handling skills, talk to your coach or check out this site which has several good animated dribbling drills. Another good place to check out for online b-ball tips is www.hoopsking.com.

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.
