A question I answered on Quora: Is practicing basketball indoor better than outdoors? Is playing indoors better than outdoors or is there no difference?
ready to live your dreams?
you've played this game all your life. it's time you get paid to do it. get my exclusive video on getting an agent to start making it happen.
Given the option, I’d choose indoors for the following reasons:
- No weather elements — heat, cold, wind, rain — indoors.
- The courts are (generally) less dusty and don’t have leaves or dirt on them.
- Indoor baskets are generally of uniform height; outdoor basket heights vary widely
As for your question, neither is “better” than the other — you can practice just fine in either environment. While cold weather or snow/rain can cancel an outdoor session, it shouldn’t be used as an excuse for a player who doesn’t have the indoor option. Work with what you have.
And, a good or garbage player will be equally good or garbage whether inside or outside.
