The purpose of the present research was to examine the effect of blocked, random, and systematically increasing practice on acquisition, retention, and transfer of different types of basketball passes (overhead pass, chest pass and sidearm pass). The participants of the research (N=45; 14.04±0.75) years old) were male, inexperienced junior high-school students who were assigned to blocked, random, and systematically increasing practice groups after performing the pre-test. The participants practiced the skills for 9 sessions (9 trials per session). Acquisition, retention, and transfer tests were conducted 24 hours after the training sessions. The results showed that the effect of training sessions was significant (α=0.05). While there was no significant difference in the acquisition performance of the groups, a significant difference was observed between the retention and transfer scores of the groups. These results support the theory of Magill and Hall (1990) and challenge-point hypothesis of Guadagnoli and Lee (2004).
