Objectives of the Basketball Game

 As we know that the game of basketball is a teamwork game to put the ball in the hoop so that the game can be won. Therefore, it can be said that the main purpose of the basketball game is teamwork or cohesion.



However, the game of basketball still has some other purpose. The following will describe the purposes of the game of basketball.

Objectives of the Basketball Game

1. Train Sportsmanship

Basically, every sport in this world always prioritizes a sportsmanship attitude, including basketball. This sportsmanship can be shown by playing fairly and not intending to harm opposing players. The sportsmanship gained from the game of basketball can make individuals feel or accept victory or defeat in an airy manner.

In addition, this sportsmanship trains ourselves to appreciate the victory or success of another person or another team. Therefore, a sportsmanship attitude must be possessed by sportsmen. With a sportsmanship attitude, the match of a sport will run fairly and be fun, either for the spectators or the players.

The most important thing about this sportsmanship is to be responsible for the appearance or performance when competing and not to blame others when they are losing.

2. Maintain Emotional Stability

The goal of the next basketball game is to maintain emotional stability. The game of basketball has a goal like this not without reason because with stable emotions will make the game pattern run well or not messy.

However, if there is a player who has unstable emotions, it is very likely that the team he defends will accept defeat. The defeat will make one team feel disappointed. In fact, losing to a team can make the team fail to get the championship.

The emotional stability obtained from the game of basketball will be beneficial for daily life, such as being able to think first before acting, not interfering in other people's affairs, and others.

3. Maintain and Train The Body's Muscle Strength

It is no stranger if the game of basketball really requires a lot of stamina. This is because basketball players have to run, jump, make passes, dribble, and put the ball in the basket. To do that all requires very strong body muscles.

Therefore, the game of basketball aims to train the strength of the body's muscles. The muscles of the body are very used in basketball games, so their strength and health must be maintained. Body muscles that are not in a fit condition will make the player play not optimally.

In order to maintain the health and strength of the body's muscles, basketball players must do regular training. With exercises that are done regularly, the health and strength of the body's muscles will be maintained. Not only that, regular exercise will increase the body's metabolism and increase the concentration of basketball players.

4. Increase Self-Confidence

In a team or team sports match, you definitely want a victory. The victory obtained by a team really requires confidence in each of its players.

In the game of basketball relies heavily on individual strength and game strategy. However, there is one more thing that needs to be considered in the game of basketball, namely the self-confidence that every player has. Players who already have high self-confidence will increase morale in a team.

Thus, the game of basketball has the aim of increasing self-confidence in each player. To increase self-confidence can be obtained from anywhere, such as wins, losses, and scores of matches that take place.

5. Train Communication

In a sport of teamwork such as basketball is in dire need of such a thing as communication of players with players and players with coaches. The pattern of the game will be well formed as long as communication goes well on the field.

Communication in a team can be done by getting to know the character of each player, listening to each other, and supporting each other. With well-established communication skills in a team, it is likely to succeed in achieving victory.

6. Winning

It is important for every team that plays basketball that winning is a must-get. Therefore, achieving victory is one of the goals of the basketball game.

The victory achieved by a team will give a sense of enthusiasm to face the next game. The sense of enthusiasm that is being felt can increase the confidence in each player, so that victory can be achieved.

To achieve victory in a match requires not only self-confidence, but the ability of each player, communication between players, and emotional stability are needed. If it's all in possession, then the strategy of putting the ball in the basket and winning the game will go well

A Brief History of Basketball

 Did you know that the beginning of the game of basketball appeared? The emergence of the game of basketball began with a sports teacher who saw that his students began to feel bored because they only had line-up activities and gymnastics. The gym teacher was named Dr. James A. Naismith and taught gymnastics at Springfield College, United States.


Naismith finds sense so that his protégés don't get bored by making a game that can be played indoors. At that time, I thought about playing football, but the game of football was not quite right if it was played indoors. Later, Naismith did not give up and continued to try to find a game that could be played indoors.

Naismith had the idea of combining several games, such as football, rugby, and lacrosse to make it playable indoors. However, he still did not find a suitable game.

In a situation of confusion, Naismith remembered the games he played as a teenager in Ontario, Canada. The game played by Naismith is "Duck On A Rock". This game is done by dropping a small stone that is placed on a rock, then the rock on the reef must be dropped with another stone. The player who manages to drop the stone is the winner.

With his teenage game, Naismith came up with the idea of conceiving a game in which each player had to touch the ball on one hit and that target was a basket. The basket was placed on the edge of the balcony with a height of about 3 meters. In this game, a player should not run while holding the ball and the team that scores the most is the winner.

The game was originally played by two groups of 9 people in each group. Naismith's disciples began to compete. The game can be regarded as the first game of basketball in the world.

The game that Naismith created still has some shortcomings, such as when the ball goes into the basket, there must be someone who takes the ball and throws it down. The ball is taken by ascending using the stairs. In fact, sometimes Naismith helped to take the ball.

Although this game still has flaws, but at that time, there were already many Americans who played the game created by Naismith.

Until at one time, there began to be several companies that made a basket under which was given an opening tool. Along with its development, there was someone who had the idea of wearing a single iron hoop surrounded by a hanging net. The idea of an iron circle with a net surrounding it is used to this day.

Meanwhile, the game of "basketball" or "basketball ball" emerged from some students. Name The emergence of the idea was because the game used a net or basket in which in English the basket is basketball.

Thanks to the game he has made, Naismith has gained appreciation and from all over the world. Therefore, in 1932 an organization was formed that specialized in handling basketball. The name of the organization was FIBA (Federation Internationale de Basketball Amateur). The FIBA organization is located in Geneva, Switzerland.

In 1939, the creator or maker of the game of basketball passed away. Although, Prof. Dr. James A. Naismith or the creator of the game of basketball has passed away, but the game he made is still remembered by the world community.
