To keep athletes moving indoors during the cold winter months, James Naismith of Almonte, Ontario, invented basketball as a team-based game of skillful passing while teaching Physical Education at the International Young Men's Christian Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts. Points would be scored by throwing a soccer ball into the peach baskets mounted to the balconies on either end of the gym—although someone would need to climb up a ladder to retrieve the ball since open-ended nets were only introduced in 1913.
