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.
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.
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.
