    Olympic-level basketball players need to be developed towards the physical, technical and tactical demands of international tournament competition. Players must maintain high-intensity movements throughout tournaments and coaches need to focus on half-court tactics. Scoring is a key technical skill at senior World Championships. However, three-point shooting cannot be altered by 30 min video-based flotation tank interventions of three weeks duration. To ensure long-term physical development, online video-based resistance training can elicit improvements in junior athletes when direct supervision is unavailable.
