BASKETBALL SIZE

It is very important to pick the right basketball because playing with an incorrectly sized ball can have long-term negative effects on a player’s technique. When younger player uses a larger basketball, they will usually compensate the heavier weight by shooting with both arms or dropping the shoulder, thus will develop a bad shooting form.

Additionally, different leagues have various restrictions regarding size, material, and color for game balls they permit.

BEST FOR OUTDOOR COURTS

COMPOSITE LEATHER
Composite leather basketballs have a better touch and grip while being durable enough to withstand dirt, moisture, and other elements, ultimately extending the life and playability of the basketball. Because of this, composite basketballs are ideal for most indoor and indoor/outdoor play.

RUBBER
Rubber basketballs are designed for kids and outdoor play. They are equipped with a cover construction designed to perform well in all-round weather conditions and will be much more durable on rough surfaces, also more bouncier than composite leather, however compromises the touch and feel.
