There are many different types of basketball dribbles that a player can learn and use. Some of the dribbles used in basketball are the speed dribble, the low dribble, the crossover dribble, the change-of-pace dribble, the between-the-legs dribble, the reverse dribble, the half-reverse dribble, the behind-the-back dribble, the hockey dribble, and the backup dribble. Each of these dribbles is used for a different purpose. But at the very least, a good player should learn to dribble a basketball at both a slow, controlled pace as well as a high speed dribble. You need to be able to effectively change your paces of dribbling…from slow, to fast, to slow again, for example.
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.
First of all, you will need focus if you ever want to improve on your basketball skills. The ability to concentrate on becoming better on the type of basketball skill that you are working on is very important. As you go on with the process of learning how to improve your basketball skills, your focus will dictate how quickly you may be able to see the results of your efforts.
