practice, practice, and more practice. You can't just hope to get better u got to make it happen. I used to be nervous just like u and still am today, but i am coping with it by playing with ball players better than me, I may suck a game here and a game there but I know I'm getting better cause I am playing with the best. Some times I ask myself why I even bother the odds are against, i'm short, and i have no standout talent. but I forget all that when i remember where i used to be, and i know no one can match the amount of effort and love I have in this game. So keep your head up and make sure u have a mental toughness cause u gonna have a lot of faliures, but its all good in order to suceed u have to fail.
I agree with Kzai. Playing with players better than you will make you much better! I was real bad at ball in 7th grade but then I took a trip to the Philippines to visit family. My cousins were great basketball players so after a month of playing with them I went into grade 8 and I was a whole lot better! Also never give up. Keep your goal in mind. If your not athletic enough, work out. If your not fast or can't last as long, start running. If your moves ain't working, make new ones. and don't worry about height! I play against guys 6 inches taller than me and do just fine! (I'm pretty short 5'5) I hope that you show those guys up. Team mates are supposed to support you to make you a better player. Best of luck!
Hey man , size plays a part in basketball, but it isn't everything.!
We can't help you improve your game, but YOU can . Just get a ball, find some space, and practice . Practice dribbling, getting comfortable with both hands, then develop a crossover.
Get a go to move where you can create space and get a shot off. Don't worry about opinions. Going through failure time and time again will make you a better player. Everybody goes through pain and struggle to reach success.
Don't worry about them . Ask your coach too during summer ball what to work on if you make the team. Because he controls your playing time on the team and what you need to work on to play for the team, not the "great" players.
