Basketball

  1. 1. Out of BoundsAll basketball courts are a rectangle. You or the ball is notallowed to touch outside the lines of the rectangle. This termis called out of bounds. The ball is thrown in from out ofbounds, but once the ball is in play, it cannot return there. Ifyou do not have the ball, you can step over the line withoutany penalties.
  2. 2. DribblingIn order to move with the ball, you must dribble it. A dribbleis the term used when you bounce the ball and walk with itwithout picking it up or using both hands. If you use bothhands or pick it up and dribble again, it is called doubledribble and the other team gets the ball. A good dribble isachieved by keeping the hand on top of the ball.
  3. 3. ShootingIn order to score, the ball must go through the basket. There arethree places a person can shoot from, for different points. If youare standing behind the three point line, which is the big arcaround the basket, and make it in the basket, you earn threepoints. All other places in front of the arc are worth two points. Thethird place is from the free throw line. If you were fouled and youare shooting free throws, each free throw is worth one point.
  4. 4. FoulsA foul is when you make contact with the person with the ball. If youare guarding someone with the ball, you are not allowed to touch orhit them. A foul can also be committed away from the ball. Shoving,hitting, tripping are all fouls also. None of these is allowed inbasketball.
  5. 5. Picking up Your DribbleIf you are dribbling the ball, then you decide to pick the ball up, youare only allowed one step. The foot that you choose not to step withmust remain on the floor. If you move the other foot, it is consideredtravelling, and that is illegal. Travelling results in the other teamgetting the ball. The only option you have once you pick up the ballis to pass it or pivot. Pivoting means, you can circle around androtate your planted foot, but it cannot slide or come off the ground.
