basketball coaches should stress this important rule for ball possesion: If
the player with ball is guarded closely, he has five seconds to dribble the
basketball, pass, or shoot the ball once he picks up his dribble. If five
seconds pass and the same player still has the ball, he will be in violation
of basketball rules.
Maintaining an expert knowledge of the rules is essential to being a good youth basketball coach. In this 28 part coaching series, veteran basketball official Sacco teaches you everything your young players need to play the game safe and by the book.
