How Do I Get Started

Anyone can play basketball. All you need is a ball and a hoop. Most playgrounds and schools have basketball hoops. Or you can play at home, on a basket in your driveway.

You can shoot at the hoop alone. Pretend that you are your favorite NBA player, making the game-winning shot. Play one-on-one against a friend. Get a group together and play three-on-three or even five-on-five.

You can play H-O-R-S-E, a game for two or more players. In H-O-R-S-E, when a player makes a shot, her opponents have to make the same shot. Miss the shot and you get an “H.” Get five letters and you are out of the game. The only player not to spell H-O-R-S-E is the winner.
