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.
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.
Hopefully, these basketball dribbling drills and ball handling drills will help you become comfortable with handling a basketball and effectively dribbling a ball to become a better overall basketball player. Remember, practice as often as possible and never watch the ball as you are dribbling!
