In this video, the Goalrilla G Trainer goal is used between two players that are focusing on both defense and offensive skills. In the lower stance, and circling around one another, players are practicing the shuffle motion for proper defense, and quick paced movement that is expected during a basketball game.

If you’re looking for a few boats with shoelaces attached, you can find them on lots of basketball courts. In fact, if you’re trying to find Will Perdue, Bulls Center champ in 1991, 1992 and 1993, you might actually see his feet before you see the rest of his body. This is true stuff, basketball fans, Pervin wears a tennis shoe size of 21 AAAAA. If you’re amazed by that and trying to envision how in the world he can sit comfortably between a couch and a coffee table, think about Shaquille O’Neal, who happens to have the biggest feet… Read more »
Anything you do in life can result in an accidental injury. Walk through the house while texting, for example, and you can flip over the coffee table and break your collar bone. Athletes know better than anyone how injury can affect not only each game, but the championship game and the shot at a scholarship. It’s always important to take care of your body, but here at the Basketball Goal Store, we believe it’s got to be a priority when you play basketball. Being aware of safety even during pick-up games or just practicing free throws under a Goalrilla Goal… Read more »
You know about this high-stress moment. Everybody’s eyes are on that one basketball player who is standing 19 feet from the base line and 15 feet from the basket. That player is very likely sweating bullets as he or she dribbles at the foul line. We are talking, of course, about the notorious free throw. Sometimes the shot can change the game. Sometimes it can actually even win the game. It’s the moment when fans are as quiet as they will usually ever be. And when the shot is a miss, it can be a big downer for the fans,… Read more »
Not everyone makes the team – there are only so many positions on the court. But putting forth the best skills and effort at try-outs is one of the reasons parents call the Basketball Goal Store. If your child is nursing a bruised ego because he didn’t make the team and he’ll be on the outside looking in, here’s something that will lift everyone’s spirits.

Everyone knows exercise for all people of all ages is very important for physical, emotional and mental health. When we focus specifically on female athletes, we see that regular physical activity is important because it: helps build and maintain bone strength, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, decreases the development of depression and anxiety, avoids unhealthy weight gain and helps to build lean muscle. These are all positives, of course. But when strenuous exercise– especially the type of strenuous exercise associated with professional female athletes- is combined with poor diet, serious health issues may develop: A female athlete’s menstrual cycle may… Read more »
Once upon a time, smack-dab in the middle of the Victorian Era, a female physical education teacher named Senda Berenson introduced the game of basketball to a group of students at Smith College for girls in Northampton. This new game was invented a year earlier (1891) by James Naismith, a Canadian-American physical education teacher and coach. Teaching the 13 official rules of basketball didn’t seem necessary. Although the newly created game of basketball was gaining fast popularity among men, it was only of interest on the women’s campus as a winter exercise option. An unladylike game involving a basketball and… Read more »

Fatigue is a real thing in basketball for players at all levels. Think back to the 2011 playoffs when LeBron James stats starting dropping game by game. He appeared winded and questions about fatigue starting to surface. Even for ballers who are kids learning the fundamentals, all the youthful energy after hard play and needs to be replenished. Building endurance is one of the top priorities for coaches of kids’ teams. That’s why drills so often focus on consistent movement. Even for short 1 – 3 minute drills, pressing with full on intensity is tiring – and builds endurance practice… Read more »

There are just so many ways for beginners to progress in basketball – so many skills to learn! The Spot-Up Shooting Drill is one that can address a few areas: shot prep position shooting – handling endurance strength development of non-dominate side The beginner level is a bit different than the advanced level of the drill, concentrating mostly on the shot prep position and making it through five shots at the five different positions – each corner, each wing and the free-throw line. All shots are taken at the mid-range level and if you are lucky enough to have a… Read more »
Besides teaching beginners the fundamentals so they develop good skills, there is usually a period of strengthening that is needed. Beginners often favor their dominant side on the basketball court. Even with a height adjustment on the Goalrilla Goal Basketball system, right handed beginners will go to the right side of the court and shoot with their right hand most often. One drill we recommend here at the Basketball Goal Store is the Wall Ball Dribble Drill. Especially for beginners, this drill will help to strengthen the non-dominant side hand, wrist, arm and shoulder. Not only will the player develop… Read more »

“One day of practice is like one day of clean living. It doesn’t do you any good.” – Abe Lemons You might ask, “Who was Abe Lemons to make such a claim?” Well, Abe Lemons is an Oklahoman who put Oklahoma City University on the map – basketball wise. He was also the president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches in 1977 and was named the National Basketball Coach of the year in 1978. The man ranked 5th among the winningest active collegiate coaches. He had a little experience, I think! The WWII veteran had a perspective on life… Read more »
What lock out? College ball is not far away and watching the building of teams is exciting – there are so many combinations of strong players being set that strong championship contenders are not a sure slam dunk for any one team. Some graduating seniors left holes that are being filled with big shoes like Andre Drummond joining UCon. On ESPN, Coach Jim Calhoun said his team is more talented right now than last season’s. Big statement. You know that players who are making names for themselves today in college ball were kids spending hours drilling and shooting baskets –… Read more »
