Sit Dribbling Sit on the floor, your legs crossed in front of you. Dribble the ball with your right hand, and dribble it around your back as far as you can get to your left side. Then pass the ball to your left hand and continue to dribble the ball around to the front of you and then pass it to your right hand. Essentially, you are dribbling the ball around your body and passing it from one hand to another. Repeat this drill 15 times, and then do the same drill in the opposite direction.
Next, I will have them come across the lane from the opposite low block, watching me and the ball all the while, giving me a lead/target hand to pass to, and landing in the right position described above at the near low block. Balance, stance, foot placement, arms and hands extended and readyeverything we just coveredand then Ill pass the ball to them. When they have this maneuver correct, now we begin teaching what to do, once they receive the pass.
Moving, To begin this basketball drill, I want to see inside movement that mirrors the perimeter movement of the ball. For instance, start the post player at one low box, moving up the side of the lane to mid-post, then to high-post elbow, center high-post, other high-post elbow, down the other side to mid-and then low-post block. I want them shuffling their feet as they move, with wide stance, bent knees and upper body upright, while always facing out at the ball and with their hands in a ready, pass-receiving look. As they move, I will emphasize lane line rules and 3-seconds. So, when they stop in a position, I want the player to be sure the feet are placed outside the lane or FT linesnot touching the lines.
