This present study focuses on children aged between 7 and 10 years, who have been playing basketball in the last two years.
The aim of this study is to verify the correlation between cognitive and motor abilities and to understand the importance of this correlation in basketball practice.
Prominent empirical findings and practical recommendations are highlighted pertaining to sleep, nutrition, recovery, and scheduling strategies to alleviate the negative effects of air travel on health and performance in NBA players.

The purpose of this study was to assess the body composition of male and female basketball athletes (n = 323) across season, year, and sport-position using air displacement plethysmography.An independent sample t-test assessed sport-position differences.Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.Basketball is ranked in the top three team sports for participation in the Americas, Australia, Europe, Southeast Asia, and Western Pacific nations, making it one of the most popular team sports worldwide [...] Full article Air travel requirements are a concern for National Basketball Association (NBA) coaches, players, and owners, as sport-based research has demonstrated short-haul flights (≤6 h) increase injury risk and impede performance.The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.However, examination of the impact of air travel on player health and performance specifically in the NBA is scarce.Therefore, we conducted a narrative review of literature examining the influence of air travel on health and performance in team sport athletes with suggestions for future research directions in the NBA.For WBB across years, no differences occurred for body mass (BM), body fat (BF%), and fat mass (FM), yet FFM increased from sophomore to junior year (p = 0.009).Sport-position differences exist in MBB and WBB: Guards were found to be smaller and leaner than forwards.
