Kid's Got Hoops
The Kid's Got Hoops!
Basketball is a team sport which is generally played on an indoor court. There are 5 players on each team, 2 forward positions (offense), center and 2 guard (defense) positions. Usually the tallest person will play the center or forward positions.
Guards must have speed and good ball handling skills. Team score points by getting the ball through a hoop placed 10 feet above the court. Players can throw the ball or try to dunk it in the net to score points.
Players cannot hold and run with the ball – they must dribble it up the court (bounce it) or pass it to other teammates. There is also no physical contact or tackling – this would result in a foul.
