Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is not a skill station in Individual Skills?

    • A.

      Shooting

    • B.

      Dribbling

    • C.

      Defense

    • D.

      Passing

    Correct Answer
    C. Defense
    Explanation
    Defense is not a skill station in Individual Skills because it is not a specific skill that can be practiced or developed in isolation. Shooting, dribbling, and passing are all skills that can be practiced individually and improved upon through focused training. However, defense is a more dynamic and situational aspect of the game that relies on a combination of skills such as footwork, anticipation, and positioning. It is best developed through game-like scenarios and drills that simulate real-game situations rather than in isolation as a skill station.

    If an athlete makes a three-point field goal in half court, does it count as three points?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    In basketball, a three-point field goal is awarded when a player successfully shoots the ball from beyond the three-point line. The location of the shot, whether it is made from half court or any other point beyond the line, does not affect the point value. Therefore, if an athlete makes a three-point field goal from half court, it still counts as three points.

    An athlete on defense can cross the free throw line once the offensive player has passed the ball in or on any live ball change of possession.

The defensive player must wait for this specific moment before crossing the free throw line.

    What is the only basketball event a coach can stand under the basket?

    • A.

      Full Court

    • B.

      Half Court

    • C.

      Unified Basketball

    • D.

      Individual Skills

    Correct Answer
    B. Half Court
    Explanation
    In a half court basketball game, the coach can stand under the basket. This is because in a half court game, the playing area is divided into two halves, with only one basket being used. This allows the coach to be close to the action and provide guidance and instructions to the players. In contrast, in a full court game, there are two baskets and the coach typically stands on the sidelines. Unified Basketball and Individual Skills events may also have coaches standing under the basket, but the question specifically asks for the only basketball event where this is possible, which is Half Court.
