1) Lay-up fundamentals for doing well on a layup
· 1) approach from an angle
· 2) use the backboard
· 3) take 2 steps
· 4) shoot from the chest
· 5) finish past the basket
· 6) right arm and right knee go up together
· 7) finger roll or lay it in/up
In the first attempt, the ball succeeded in going through the hoop. I approached from an angle and used the backboard. I also shot from my chest and I finished past the backboard. When I lifted my right arm, I also lifted my right leg. However, I did not do the finger roll and only took one step. I think I also dribbled the ball too high. Therefore, I missed a few fundamentals. However, I think it was good.
In the second attempt, the ball failed in going through the hoop. Unlike the first attempt, I took two steps. Although I used the backboard I shot from the front rather than an angle. I shot from a little above my chest and I finished past the backboard. Like the first attempt, I also lifted my right leg when lifting up my right arm. I think I should definitely work on my finger roll skills as I was not able to do a finger roll in both attempts. I think I also dribbled too high in the second attempt. However, I think I did well in the other fundamentals.
Basketball was a great unit and I am looking forward to doing dance after the health session.
