Picture Of Youth Basketball Players
I have a basketball question about playing defense.
I need some help on how to teach man on man defense to 4 and 5 year olds.

At 4 and 5 years old, honestly, I don’t know if there’s a need to teach the players how to play man defense.
Their basketball experience at this age should be about fun games, drills and contests. Not man-to-man defense.
If you want to introduce the “concept” of defense or maybe the defensive stance, that would be fine. Just keep it simple and make it fun and I think you’ll be fine.
