Get To Know About Basic Rules Involved In Playing Basket Ball

When you want to play basketball just for fun, there is a possibility for you to play alone. But, you can also play in a team with either one, two, three, four or five players on each team. The teams can be mixed with boys and girls or not.
While speaking about competition level, a team is composed of five players playing in the court and the other five players on the bench who can be utilized for substitution during the complete duration of the game.
Position:
Every player is assumed a position while playing. This position is normally decided by the player’s height. The tallest player in the team normally plays at the center that is also called as position 5, whereas the players of medium height play in a position three and four/’forward’. The shortest players will be playing position one and two or ‘guards’.
Scoring:
A player gets score if he manages to throw ball inside the basket, having the ball pass through basket from above. With balls scoring basket improves the team score by one, two or three points. While the player shoots successfully from outside of three points line, then the basket is worth three points, or it is worth two points. There is also a possibility to score 1 point while shooting from the line of free throw ahead of foul, for instance.
Violation:
Violation happens if the player breaks any of the basketball rules. Violation results in the opponents getting the ball. It could result from the player getting more than two steps without having the ball bounce on the floor. This is referred as travelling. The other instance for violation to occur is if a player stops dribbling and starts again to dribble or if he bounces the ball using both the hands. This is usually called as double dribble. Violation is also regarded as committed when a player twisted his hands, while being in contact with the ball, afar the vertical, taking it under the ball. This is referred as carry, since the hand should be on the top of the ball always.
Fouls:
Foul is considered as an illegal attempt, which can be committed by a player of one team against a player of the opponent team. This basket ball game is typically called to be as a non-contact game. When contact happens beyond that is believed to be reasonable, or when a player thereby gets an unfair benefit from it, it will be taken as committing foul. There are two kinds of fouls, the first being defensive fouls. They happen if the offensive player is fouled by defender. The defenders must not push, block, strike, trip or hold another player in possession of the ball. The next ones are offensive fouls. Offensive foul is committed if a player runs or pushes over defensive player. The ball will be awarded to the team against whom the foul is committed.
