Basketball Court Dimensions

Youth Basketball Court Dimensions

The information below shows different areas of the court and includes notes on traps, trapping, free throw line, footage, block area, half court, and some of the “basics” that every youth basketball coach should be familiar with (and players too). This youth basketball court diagram describes the most important areas that every coach should know and understand. Coaches should take the time to learn all the areas of a basketball court, including the dimensions.

This is a great learning tool for coaches to teach their players (especially the inexperienced younger players). Please share this information with others to help spread the word about the AVCSS Basketball website.
