  2. HISTORY • James Naismith was the Canadian physical education instructor who invented basketball in 1891. • Initially, players dribbled a soccer ball up and down a court of unspecified dimensions. • Points were earned by landing the ball in a peach basket. • Iron hoops and a hammock-style basket were introduced in 1893. • Another decade passed before the open-ended net was introduced. This put an end to manually retrieving the ball from the basket each time a goal was scored.

  3. HOW TO PLAY • There are 2 teams • Ball advances down the court by dribbling, passing, or shooting • A player scores by shooting the ball into their basket; 1 point for free throws, 2 points for floor shots, 3 points for shots beyond the 3 point line • The ball is given to the other team after a scoring • The game is won by the team with the most points after time has expired

  4. BASKETBALL SAFETY • Wear appropriate athletic clothing and tennis shoes • Players need to be aware of all surroundings making sure to not come in contact with another player, benches or walls • Make sure playing area is free of debris and liquid spills • Practice proper communication, for example, speaking loud enough for teammates to know where you are on the court. Only pass the ball to a player if the player is looking at you.
