In addition to team competition, Special Olympics basketball also offers individual skills competition to allow athletes to train and compete in basic basketball skills. The development of these key skills is necessary prior to advancing to team play. Basketball offers these events including target pass, ten-meter dribble, speed dribble, spot shot, 3v3 team basketball and 5v5 team basketball.
