Cool Things Needed to Know About High School Basketball?

I probably will join high school basketball next year. I decided to make a thread about tips because I wanted to know from people's personal experiences(about the training, how to act, plays,etc.)

Dont get discouraged by HS politics. You might be one of the best players on the team but not get playing time or even make the team because the coach and your teammates father went to HS together or some bullshit like that. Just stay calm and focused if that happens.

This is too true. My HS, I tried out freshman year and all we did was run for 2 weeks. Suicides, lateral lane slides, foot fires, we didn't do ball drills until 2 weeks later and we each got one shot coming off a pick. Practices lasted so long that I didn't have a chance to really work on shooting afterward and airballed my first and only shot.

I'm going to be a junior in the fall and I'm going out for JV. But it sucks, because there are so many kids that make it either because they're tight with the coach/system or they're bigger. There's so many reasons but I'm not going into detail because I'm not the kind to make excuses.

Bottom line: many schools have other agendas.
