Application of Research to the Teaching of Basketball at the Elementary School Level.
Turkington, H. David
This paper explores what has been reported by several researchers in an attempt to make recommendations on the most effective method of introducing basketball to elementary school age children. Based on this review the following observations are brought forward for consideration. Factors which significantly affected student success include: height of basket, proper instruction, leg power, grip strength, height of females, and the use of a mastery learning strategy. Factors which did not significantly affect success include size of ball and height of males. (Author)
