Quickness and speed translates into the game of basketball more than it does for most sports, and having your team be able to maximize their ability to be fast can add a lot of value. On defense if your team can be quicker it will help to prevent the other team from getting the ball in the paint, and on offense the faster your team can get up the floor the more chances they will get at easy baskets. The only way that you team is going to be able to play faster though is for you to take time to help your players learn how to be quicker/faster in your basketball workouts and practice.
Basketball is becoming a game that revolves around athleticism, and if you are not able to keep up with the players that you are going against it is going to be difficult to get on the floor. That is why you need to dedicate time and add speed and quickness workouts to your basketball training plan. You don’t have to spend hours on it each week, but you do need to spend some time working on it, 15-20 minutes 2 times a week should be fine. Use these basketball workouts to help maximize your quickness and speed.
