Step up your game! Improve your basketball skills before the fall season!

Even though it's not basketball season, it doesn't mean that you can't get outside and enjoy some one on one! However, when it comes to playing the game set up a few things you want to meet that will help you succeed in the game.

Tips:
  • Ask the coach what you can do to help the team
  • Play to your strengths
  • Always hustle and work hard
  • Take charges
  • Play tough defense
  • Always box out
  • Take good shots
  • Make the extra pass
  • Sprint to the front of the huddle
  • Be a great teammate
If you follow some of these tips, you are more than likely going to get more playing time and be a great teammate. You want to always make sure that you are improving your game in any way.

Tips to improving your dribbling:
  • Keep your head up the entire time
  • Dribble the basketball with intensity (harder the dribble the faster it will be back in your hand)
  • Control the ball with your fingertips
  • Do not over dribble
  • Venture away from your comfort zone!
Try these tips at basketball practice or in a one on one game with your friend. The more you practice the better you will be when it comes to the real game!

Tips to improving defense:
  • Improve your stance: feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart, knees bent, hips back and you height should be depended on the height of the person you are guarding.
  • Create a cushion: use your arms as a measuring stick to provide you with a cushion, this will allow you to pressure the ball handler but give you enough space to react to stay in front them.
  • Proper footwork: when ball handler puts the ball on the floor, your first lead step/slide needs to be a big one, this ensures that the ball handler can't take a straight approach around your hips. After that happens use short and quick slides.
  • Active hands
  • Be in great physical shape
When you improve your defense skills, it will ultimately improve your whole game. When you combined all of the tips above you will for sure because the best you can be before hitting the court this fall! Be sure to check out all of our basketball shoes! Also we have a 20% sale off athletic shoes happening now! So stock up on basketball shoes while they are on sale!

Skateboarding Tips and Tricks

Mens Emerica The Hsu Skate Shoes
Learning how to skateboard requires the right gear to start with. Appropriate skate shoes are the first step to good skateboarding because they are specially designed for the sport. The features in skate shoes have a number of functions, including prevention of bruises to heels, flexibility, and increased grip action and durability. We carry all the top brands: Vans, DC, Globe, Fallen, Osiris, DVS and more! Once you find the shoes that fit you, get on the board! You may also need a helmet and pads.

Here's some riding tips:

Stance:
There are two ways to stand on a skateboard. Regular stance is where your left foot placed at the front of the board, pushing with your right. Goofy stance is with the right foot at the front of the board, pushing with your left foot. Try both and find the one that feels more natural.

Stopping:
Knowing how to stop is important as knowing how to go along. You can put all your weight on your back foot so the board drags along the ground otherwise you can take your back foot off and drag it on the ground beside the board.

Tricks:
A basic trick most skaters do is the ollie. It can be difficult for a lot of people so a kickturn is another basic trick. Kickturning is the name for when you need to turn quickly, so instead of simply leaning, you lift the front trucks off the ground and pivot. Learn about more tricks and keep practicing.
