Basketball

Basketball is captivating young athletes with exciting college action, as well as professional leagues for both men and women. It’s not difficult to get in the game—there’s usually one as close as a local gymnasium, school yard, park or driveway.

With so many basketball leagues and opportunities to play, athletes often compete through multiple seasons with little chance for down time. To keep young basketball players on the court, the Children’s Sports Medicine Program offers the following training techniques, nutrition basics and safety tips to help prevent injuries.
