One of the easiest drills you can start with is to just dribble your basketball everywhere you go. Whether you just go for a walk, or a jog, or are walking to the park or anywhere else, take your basketball with you and dribble the entire time you are walking or jogging (Remember: without looking at the ball!). This will help you to develop the natural feel and rhythm of dribbling the ball, so eventually it will become second nature to you. Once you are comfortable with dribbling a basketball, then you can move on to the other specific dribbles I mentioned earlier. Always remember to practice dribbling a basketball with each hand. You want to be proficient dribbling with either hand, not just one. Once you feel comfortable dribbling, here are a few simple basketball dribbling drills to get you started to improve your ball handling skills and dribbling skills.
Also, it is very important to never pick up your dribble until you know what you are going to do with the ball. Once you pick up your dribble (hold the ball with both hands instead of pushing it to the floor with one hand), you are forced to pass or shoot the ball. If you pick up your dribble, and then start to dribble the basketball again, that is called a “double dribble” and the referee will blow his whistle and give the ball to the other team.
