2 Balls. Line players in single file along sideline, one ball at front and one at the back. This drill is good for warm-ups.
As the line jogs around the outside of the court, the ball at the front is passed back over the heads of the players, and the ball at the back is dribbled forward through the line, weaving between the players. As the ball reaches the back, it is dribbled forwards, when the ball reaches the front, it is passed back over heads.
Complete the drill after
- All players have dribbled
- A certain number of laps
- A certain time
5 to 20
Few really necessary, as you dribble balls off player's feet if you don't concentrate.
Vary passes, dribble moves, speed.
Remove both balls and just jog, add more and add difficulty.
Remove one ball and dribble or remove one and just jog to the front of the line with the ball rather than dribble weaving. Advanced players can all have a basketball, and the player at the back can dribble two balls to the front.
Ball handling, dribbling.
