Basketball at Pear Tree Summer Camp

Paul Romani

Today we learned how to play basketball.

We learned how to throw bounce and chest passes. We learned how to throw those passes properly. This is important because we need to know the proper passes so we don’t injure ourselves and so we don’t break the rules of the game.

We learned how to play a half court basketball game.  We learned that there are only five players on the court at a time, and we have fourteen people in our group, so each team has two substitutions.

We also learned how to do layups.  We learned that, when you do a layup, you are supposed to lift one of your legs to do a proper lay up.We did jumping squats, which makes us more able to shoot properly.

Its so fun to play basketball at Pear Tree.
