One of my favorite sports, Basketball

Today i felt like telling you all about one of my favorite sports ever! Basketball!
I really like basketball because of its awesomeness i guess? What i mean of that is when you play you get so excited on the court! Its one of those sports that you are excited all week about!
I have been player basketball since i was 10, I was in year 5. Back then the rules were easier to follow; Now in intermediate basketball the rules are a little bit harder! These are the rules of basketball:

-You have to have a number on the back of your uniform so the ref knows were to write you down if you get a foul.

-A player cannot run with the ball. That is called travel.

-No shouldering, holding, striking, pushing, or tripping in any way of an opponent. if you do you get a foul and once you get five fouls you have to come off the court for the rest of the game!

-Double dribble is when you dribble the ball, stop and then start dribbling again, or when you bounce the ball with two hands at the same time.

-If you get a foal from another player in the basket area you get to have two free throws from the free throw line.

I love basketball because of its excitement! Also you don't have any positions on the court, you may have a special job to do but everyone gets a go at shooting, taking the ball down the court and guarding (which you don't have to stand three feet away) It is a contact sport and you will  get hurt but that's what i like about basketball! There is set rules but its not as tense as netball.

i hope you learnt something about one of my favorite sports!
See you next time!
