As Crayton’s JV/Varsity High School season comes to an end and Garrett’s also nears the finish, I’m not saddened. I am reassured that basketball doesn’t end around here with the school schedule or the tournament season. The basketballs may collect a little dust for a bit as other activities come into the forefront, but it is a hobby or pastime that can continue throughout the year and for life.

Great for any age

Indoors or outdoors, January or July, there’s always an outlet for a basketball player whether they’re 7 or 70 years old.

These are pictures of my dad playing basketball at almost 70 years old. He gets a workout and spends time with the family. Bonding over basketball is an added bonus.

You don’t need 5 guys just to go out and dribble or shoot around. It’s difficult to play or practice football by yourself, but basketball is special.

Here we are on vacation, relaxing but staying active. Shooting baskets is a great way to enjoy the tropical weather and stretch your muscles.

Many resorts have basketball goals. If traveling domestically, search out an area park or school playground.

Whether in your own backyard, a school gym, on a fancy resort, or at the park around the corner- A basketball hoop will not be far.

Basketball is a great sport, but don’t overlook it as a wonderful hobby too.
