5’7 can touch rim, fast as hell, handles are decent, shot is good, passing is ok, drives need work, defense is ok. Advice comments or concerns?
To become a great point guard will require an even deeper level of commitment and focus from you.
Next you need to find a dedicated coach. A good coach will be able to show you where you need to improve, keep you motivated and possibly even pair you up with a great point guard in basketball.
Make no mistake about it, a good point guard is made, not born. It sounds like you already have the confidence and willing to take the game of basketball to an all new level, you just need some guidance now. Don’t give up, keep on practicing.
I’d also look around to see if there is a basketball league around you. Play against men bigger than you are and better. By playing against bigger and better players, you’ll learn how to beat them.
I was recently cut from my high school JV soccer team. The coach said that if I improved I could try again. I screwed up a lot but I realized that the source of most of my problems was that I don’t know how to move well without watching the soccer ball (I know, something I should have learned a long time ago) and I know that if I fix that, I will make a pretty good Defender. Any drills or something that I can do to help improve my game? Thanks.
You’re on your way to curing your own problem. Sounds like you’ve diagnosed it yourself. Look in your local area for Soccer clinics. Nowadays they’re everywhere.
Although the clinics may not have a specific coach for being a Defender, the people who are there may know someone that can help you. You can also search YouTube for Soccer Defender specific videos.
But your most important task ahead is to practice your moves. As they say, practice makes perfect. If you truly want to get better at Soccer and being a Defender, follow the tips above.
