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.
The 4th of the simple basketball plays is the fast break off a turnover made by the defense. Whenever their team makes an interception or steal, the players quickly move to fill the left lane and the right lane. The ball possessor dribbles quickly down the middle of the court. He/she dribbles to just inside the foul line and stops to take a shot or pass to an open teammate closer to the basket. These simple basketball plays are ones that grade school players can remember and do during the games. These plays often lead to makeable shots. This builds the confidence of grade school players as they see that they can get open for scores.
