Basketball Shooting Guard
Role and Responsibilities
Shooting guards are important players on a basketball team. As a shooting guard, you should be a strong shooter around the perimeter of the court. Like every position, the shooting guard must be able to transition between offense and defense efficiently.
When their team is on offense, the shooting guard is responsible for shooting the ball, and making baskets from beyond the three-point line.
