Physical Education Class 10 ICSE Basketball Notes

➢ Introduction :

Basketball is played by 2 teams of 5 players each. The aim of each team is to score in the opponents’ basket and to prevent the other team from scoring. The game is controlled by the officials, table officials and a commissioner, if present. The basket that is attacked by a team is the opponents’ basket and the basket which is defended by a team is their own basket. The team that has scored the greater number of points at the end of playing time shall be the winner.

➢ World History

The game of Basketball was first invented by Dr. James Naismith of USA in December, 1891 at Spring Field College, United States of America. In the very beginning, 40 to 50 players used to be in one team. The game used to be played in a Gymnasium. A pair of baskets was nailed on the walls facing each other. One had to take the ball out whenever a goal was scored. After that, Dr. Smith framed certain rules of the game.

➢ Indian History

Approximately 85 years ago in India, the game of Basketball was introduced by Y.M.C.A College, Madras. Since then, Basketball has become popular in every part of India. The Indian Basketball Federation was formed in 1950.

➢ Dribbling

A dribble is the movement of a live ball caused by a player in control of that ball who throws, taps, rolls the ball on the floor or deliberately throws it against the backboard. It is of two kinds :

(i) High dribbling : The objective in high dribbling is to advance the ball more quickly. It is always meant for advancing the ball; here bounce is comparatively higher up to waist level.

(ii) Low dribbling : It is used when the offensive in the ball is being guarded closely. Low dribble is controlled dribble. The ball is protected while putting the body between ball and the defensive player.

➢ Pivoting

It is a very important skill because it helps basketball player to attack or defend himself and his position. A pivot takes place when a player who is holding the ball steps once or more than once in any direction, with the same foot, while the other foot called the pivot foot is being kept at its point of contact with the floor.

➢ Shooting

In order to score points in basketball, you need to shoot the ball into the hoop. This requires the ability to properly hold and throw the ball into the air towards the basket while avoiding defenders. There are three kinds of shoo- ting :

(i) Jump shot : A jump shot or jumper is an attempt to score a basket by jumping, usually straight up, and in mid-jump, propelling the ball in an arc into the basket.

(ii) Lay-up shot : A shot in which a player reaches the ring by taking one and a half step.

(iii) Dunk shot : A shot is called the Dunk shot when a player jumps high enough to get the ball up and over the ring to press it forcefully into the ring.

➢ Catching

Catching the ball is just an action that requires your hands placing a grip on the ball. The sole purpose is to receive the ball from another player.

➢ Passing

Passing means the movement of the ball from one player to another. Passing is the best way to keep possession of the basketball and is a faster way of moving the ball up the court than dribbling. A good pass is smoothly handled and not forced. It is usually 12-18 feet (the longer ones can be easily intercepted) and is made with control.

(i) Chest pass : This technique is used when there is no defender standing in the way between the passer and his intended receiver. The ball is gripped with both hands by placing the fingertips on both sides of the ball; the thumbs should nearly meet behind the ball..

(ii) Bounce pass : In bounce pass, the holding of the ball, body positions and passing action is approximately the same as in two hand chest pass.

(a) One-handed bounce pass : One-handed bounce pass is used when the bounce pass is difficult for defender to steal. The change of direction is hard for the defender to judge.

(b) Two-handed bounce pass : Two-handed bounce pass is used to avoid a defender who is trying to block or intercept the ball.

(iii) Overhead pass : This technique is often used to break a defensive trap. The idea is for the passer to get the ball to a receiver who is tall and who is standing close to the basket.

(iv) Baseball passing : In this type of pass, the ball should be taken just behind the head on right or left direction with a support of the upper portion of palm and fingers. One foot should be kept in front of the other and the ball should be thrown with a swing of the fingers. This pass is usually applied for long passes.

➢ Ball handling

Ball is held with both hands firmly. The fingers should spread evenly on the ball. The angle of thumb is to be at 40 degrees facing angularly to each other. Relax the shoulders and elbows close to the body.

➢ Jumping

Jumping is another skill that can define how good a basketball player is. Jumping is involved in offense during the jump ball in the beginning, while taking shots and sometimes while trying to catch a pass.

➢ Rebounding

It means successfully gaining possession of the ball after a missed field goal or free throw. Power forwards and centres do most of the rebounding for their team as they should be two tallest players in the team.

➢ Blocking

When a player attempts to screen and block the opponent in restricting the move towards scoring.
