Team Chemistry Activity
Basketball is a team game. Every member must be on one page. Team always win over individuals. One of the most important elements of Basketball is Team Chemistry. So, I decided to share this particular activity with the Basketball coaches in the USA. November is national Coaching Month.

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something you accept no excuses, only results.”
