I will have a ball and be toward the wing position, about half-way between the baseline and the FT line extended. I want the player facing me, in ready, bent-knee stance, on good balance, with the arms extended toward the ball, hands anticipating a pass. I will pass in to the post and have them take the ball in to the chest, pressing the ball tight with both hands, elbows pointed out (parallel with the lane line). I emphasize always keeping the eyes on the ball, looking the pass right into their hands, before they attempt any other movement. Well do this several times, until the player is comfortable with the procedure and until I too feel they can do the drill and move on.
Full-Court Speed Dribble Dribble the basketball quickly down the court with your right hand with the ball coming up to your waist and it is far out in front of you when you push it to the floor. Make the lay-up to the right side of the basketball hoop. Then head back up the court, repeating the speed dribble with your left hand and making the lay-up on the left side of the basketball hoop. Do this 6 times then shoot 10 free throws. Then repeat this drill again.
“So, how do I develop these crazy good dribbling skills?” is the next question you’re asking. Of course, to become skilled at dribbling a basketball, you must practice, practice, practice! Basketball dribbling is a skill that is developed by having the basketball in your hand and practicing with it as often as possible. There are basketball dribbling drills that will definitely improve your dribble, but you must be willing to put the time and work into practicing the drills in order to get better. Remember to avoid looking at the ball while you are dribbling!
