    Does anyone have any tips on how to impress the coach and make the basketball team. I'm only about 5'2-5'3, have great handling, a great shot but not great defense and need to improve my conditioning.

    Depends really. Every coach mostly looks for different things in players. Just make sure you work you hardest out there, keep a good attitude, and don't try and showoff and ballhog. All coaches usually look for things like that.

Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it. Derek says it's always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can't top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you'd like. 'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.

    just always hustle, especially on defense. you can easily fool a coach into thinking you play better defense than you really do. just get low and smother them.

    Yeah what they said. And set your team mates up a lot, since it sounds like you will be playing the point from how tall you said you were. Nothing is worse than a point guard who never passes (trust me...I know...)

    When I was on the basketball team in middleschool I was useless on offense, but coach played me because I was all over my guy like a homosexual in the heat of passion.

If your in a scrimmage during tryouts and some guy shoots on you or does a crossover on you, come back and embarass him too. Just have that fire in you.

    Hustle my tryouts are soon. I'm a Freshman in Carlisle High but I'm 6'2" unlike you who shorter an has to do way more work. Okay listen do you guys have like pre-season open gym days like just come so the coach can watch you an stuff ? If you do GO to every one of them because that will say one thing that you really want this an you really want to play He will like that an also like someone said Hustle like crazy since your a little dude you probably can't jump as high as me just cause I got hight but Im not saying you can't jump so you should work on hands make your hands, wrist stronger an faster if you have fast hands you can steal likes crazy then you dont have to jump an crap you know what I mean? So that things are:1. Come to every Open Gym [if you have them] that will show him you really want to be on the team. 2. Hustle like crazy an on the weekends get out your house an run 3 miles then rest for 5-10mins run 1 mile then do sprints like 40 yards an stuff then make it shorts to imporve your speed.3. Make your hands faster an make your arms stronger that means weight lift if you can't weight lift do 40-50 push-ups then 5-10 one arm push ups. Then 125-135 sit ups. And you said you got nice ball handing your good there you dont need anything else for your hight, I think.Edit: Hope you understood that, if you didn't tell me I'll try to explen it better.

    ^We have the same favorite player :happy0144: But, yeah just show the coach you want to be on team bad. Like our tryouts are on Halloween night 6:30 to 8:00. I asked him why and he said whoever shows up I know they will miss Halloween for basketball.

But during the time I was out, I went to every practice and game my club team had (my freshmen coach is the coach of that team too) and showed dedication and passion for the game, and in return, he gave me a lot of left handed drills and ball handling drills to do while I was out. It really helps to show dedication to the team and the sport, and then your coaches will know that even if you aren't too good, they can give you drills and stuff to do and then they will have faith that you will do them.

Encourage teammates and your coach will take notice.

It's not something I do consciously, but it's something I've learned to do out of necessity over the years."

    I'm against all odds. There's 77 players who signed up to tryout and 26 make it...and trust me, I haven't seen anyone who doesn't look like they are good at basketball at the meeting. All 77 look like they could all be solid players.

    yo..all you have to do is hustle and listen. Dont worry about scoring. Try not to turn the ball over too much. Youll be ok. Just go out there and do your thing.My school had about 120 trying out..I was one of the 12 picked.What schools will you be playing by the way? Any schools from Chicago?
