Top Basketball Training related questions

The average beginner can learn basketball in 2 months with daily practice. If you can’t train daily, have sessions at least twice a week. The sessions should last half an hour to 2 hours - this can help you master the lessons and develop your basketball skills within 3 to 4 months. This can take more or less time, depending on how well you absorb the lessons. 

The qualities you should look for in a good basketball trainer are experience, patience and optimism. They should be a good motivator and experienced enough to help you make the most of your strengths. Not everyone has the same physical attributes like height or endurance, and a good trainer should take these into account and still make a good basketball player out of anyone. If you’re hiring a Tasker for your kids, they should know how to motivate and deal with them. 

The best basketball training workouts are those which develop and strengthen your leg muscles for jumping and running. They should also strengthen your arms and shoulders for shooting the ball. Workouts with exercises like the Romanian deadlift, alternating dumbbell press, pull-ups and the medicine ball squat make up some of the best workouts for basketball players. Your Tasker can recommend the training workout to maximise muscle gains for your endurance, speed, flexibility and strength.  

Yes. These are used to simulate the hands and body of another player trying to steal the ball. In the hands of a capable trainer, these pads can train students to be aware of how to move and position themselves. This helps prevent anyone from stealing or knocking the ball out of their hands. Training pads can help you practice dribbling and keeping the ball while blocking out other players and avoid committing an offensive foul.  

What do basketball training services include?

Basketball training includes all the tasks and activities necessary to train students to become excellent basketball players or know how to play for fun. You can book various training programs like basketball training for kids, which can include basketball games for kids and basketball drills for kids. Those new to the sport can learn basketball for beginners. 

Those who need a trainer to help them improve their technique can book advanced basketball lessons. You can also use basketball training to enhance your fitness workouts and build endurance. All trainers should be able to provide the appropriate style and level of training needed to achieve your goals.   

Setting training goals

Your basketball training Tasker can help you set your training goals. Do you want to improve your shooting technique? Do you want to hone your dribbling and passing skills? Are you doing this for fun, or do you want to start a career in basketball? Say what you want out of your training course, and your Tasker can help you plan your goals and help you achieve them.

Drafting a workout & drills plan

Your Tasker can design a customised plan with all the required drills, workouts, and, if necessary, a diet program to help you attain your goals. If you need to go on a strict diet to reach a certain fitness level, you can get someone to help you stick to the program. You can also take your diet regimen a step further and hire someone to help you with your meal planning.   

Workouts & drills

Your Tasker can supervise your workouts and basketball drills. If you’re a beginner, they can teach you how to dribble and keep the ball within the bounds of the court and the proper form for shooting the ball into the hoop. 

If you’re a more experienced cager, your Tasker can show you how to improve your shooting, dribbling and passing techniques. They can keep track of your time as you do your drills to monitor your progress. 

Advanced basketball coaching

Your Tasker can provide you with advanced training if you’re a seasoned player and need help improving your basketball skills. Some Taskers can arrange a practice game with other players to assess your current skill and which areas need improvement. 

After observing your performance, your Tasker can recommend the appropriate measures for improving your game, such as an exercise regimen, diet program and comprehensive training drills.  

Practice games and assessment

Towards the end of your basketball lessons, some Taskers may have you play a practice game with other players of a similar level. This can serve as a practical assessment of how well you absorbed the lessons. 

They may record your performance, then review the video with you to point out which of your basketball skills need improvement. Your Tasker can repeat this process until they think you have achieved your training objectives.

Looking for a weekly 1hr basketball coaching session for my 10yo son. He plays in a comp but the team he’s in has put it on hold for term 2&3 for football . He is keen to keep playing so I thought a private basketball coach once a week would be a good option to get him better at skills.

Ignacio was fantastic with my son. He organised the court and taught him for a private lesson for an hour. My son was very happy with the lesson and so we’re we! Highly recommended!
