PURPOSE: This study has two purposes: (a) to determine the effect of a teacher-developed physical fitness program on the performance of specific participant goals for the game of basketball and (b) to determine the impact of this same program on the overall perception of the participants amongst their peers when participating in the game of basketball. METHODS: The participants in this study included two high school males. Participant 1 had a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and was provided services through a 504 plan. This study occurred over a 5-week period, including a 5-week intervention, with the pre and post assessments taking place in the 1st and 5th week. Additionally, participants were surveyed prior to the study taking place and on the last day of the study. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data from the Qualtrics survey and demonstrate a change in behavior. Future researchers should expand on the number of participants and length of the intervention to determine the impact of a teacher developed program for the game of basketball.
