Players must continually strive to improve their skill level and overall game. After all, they want to get good and be successful.

The only way to do this is to master the fundamentals of basketball! There is no short-cut to success. It takes hard work, dedication and a strong work ethic.

The great players we see at the college and professional levels didn't get to that level by chance. They worked to build, improve and perfect the youth basketball fundamentals that would make them an effective, well-rounded player. Coaches must also strive to become effective teachers of the game. They have a tremendous responsibility to teach their players every aspect of basketball.

By teaching their players the proper youth basketball fundamentals, they are giving them a solid foundation that will put them in a position for future success in all aspects of the game. Whether you are a basketball player, coach, or parent of a player - I think the great Larry Bird says it best in regard to basketball fundamentals: "First master the fundamentals" ~ Larry Bird.

Hey, things worked out pretty good for him. Let's all follow his advice!
