Ability to play in team. Even at the smallest this quality easily is defined. You should not suppress individualism, but if the collectivism is inherent in the child, it is worth encouraging it.
High growth. Even if the undersized child well gets to a basket, success to him is provided only at a physical education class. To compete with high in big-time sports it will be difficult for it.

Speed not only in the movements, but also in reaction. These skills will be improved at the first-grade levels of future basketball players.
Personal desire. Even if it seems to parents that their daughter or the son will be able to subdue a basket, you should not force she (he).
