Larger than Life: Position Series #2

Basketball: The Lost Art of the Low Post

For larger children, oftentimes you are shoved into a sport that you don’t want or even a place where you don’t want to play. Basketball, however, provides a place for those too large to be contained.

The low post, or the area closest to the basket has always been dominated by those who tower above the other players. The post is a place for those who are able to reach higher, be physical, and command attention. This is great for large kids to develop footwork, aggressiveness and to feel that they have a place in athletics.
