Basketball at the USC
Many have played basketball before at school - dribbling, turning and crossing over, all while keeping an eye on your teammates and opponents. Jumping up to launch your shot… Yes, three-pointer! There are many opportunities to play basketball at the USC: by signing up for our general training, hiring a hall with friends or registering with our fun LUSV Basketball students’ union.
FROM COUCH POTATO TO GO-GETTER!
Basketball is a game of speed, mobility, power and cardiovascular fitness. The game has a strong explosive character, switching constantly and leaving little room for error. Who doesn’t remember Rik Smits, the Dutch basketball player who achieved success in the United States with a professional career spanning 12 years and NBA All Star status? He would never have made it that far on basketball practice alone. Gym workouts were an important part of his training routine.
FITNESS SCHEDULE TO FIT
Basketball is a great game that once you’ve started you’ll want to play more often and will enjoy even more if you train for it. Knees, back, ankles, shoulders and arms are all put under a certain amount of strain. Muscles used in basketball can be specifically trained in our fitness centre. Ask our fitness instructors for a workout routine to improve your performance on the basketball court and prevent any injuries.
