- Clean the court. Cleaning the basketball court they have been using to ensure that incidents will not occur any moment soon. If you made your garage or driveway a mini court for the little ones, make sure you have cleaned them with an oil concrete cleaner to remove all the grease, lubricants and oil stains on the floor surfaces. These blotches might cause major fallings since it’s slippery especially when wet. Clean and scrub off all the oil particles on the floor before handling a basketball game.

- For the adults, know how to give first-aid medical assistance. Accidents may occur in ant basketball game. It is inevitable no care whether the players are kids or adults, these unusual incidents really do happen. However, the medical assistance the kids might need is more crucial than those given to the older ones. With that being said, it’s a must that the adults on-site during the game must know how to plot first-aids to the kids. The kits and other medical tools should be ready and someone must know how to use them very well. Safety must always be the first priority of every basketball game topping the fun and lessons the kids will learn.
