After the basics of shooting have been achieved by the players, then different types of shots can be looked at for the game. Usually, you will want to practice with your players on types of shots, ones that are outside and others that are inside. The outside shooting will allow the players to shoot from a longer distance away. If these shots are made, then the team will make either two or three points from the basket. Inside shooting will be when the team is able to make a basket that is closer to the hoop. Things such as slam dunks are considered part of the inside shooting.
Like anything else, learning the skill of effective dribbling takes time and practice. Basketball handling drills and basketball dribbling exercises are very useful in learning how to dribble a basketball. It is important to keep your head up while dribbling. Dribble the basketball with your fingertips and pads of your hands, but without looking down at the ball. You must keep your eyes focused on the court and watch the players’ movement so you can anticipate the next move on offense. Learn to go by the rhythm and feel the basketball, so you don’t have to look down to dribble.
One of the easiest drills you can start with is to just dribble your basketball everywhere you go. Whether you just go for a walk, or a jog, or are walking to the park or anywhere else, take your basketball with you and dribble the entire time you are walking or jogging (Remember: without looking at the ball!). This will help you to develop the natural feel and rhythm of dribbling the ball, so eventually it will become second nature to you. Once you are comfortable with dribbling a basketball, then you can move on to the other specific dribbles I mentioned earlier. Always remember to practice dribbling a basketball with each hand. You want to be proficient dribbling with either hand, not just one. Once you feel comfortable dribbling, here are a few simple basketball dribbling drills to get you started to improve your ball handling skills and dribbling skills.
