POINT GUARD AND SHOOTING GUARD TRAINING
(1) Point Guard and (2) Shooting Guard are collectively referred to as a basketball team’s backcourt and are commonly the players that advance the ball into the side of the court on which their team is attempting to score. The shooting guard is typically responsible for scoring the most points between the two guards, while the point guard is expected to create plays by passing the ball to open players, such as the forwards and center. Usually, these responsibilities vary based upon the type of defense the opposing team uses and, on the strengths, and weaknesses of opposing players .
FRONT COURT POSITION TRAINING
(1) Small Forward (2) Power Forward and (3) Center are collectively designated as a basketball team’s frontcourt. Typically, these players play near the baseline, which is the out-of-bounds line under each basket.
On offense, these players constantly move from one side of the key to the other in an attempt to free themselves to take an open shot. When used in relation to these players, the term frontcourt usually refers to their offensive responsibilities, but also carries implications to the players they defend.
