Basketball drills for dribbling

  • The players give each other difficult balls.
  • Throwing in such a way that one has to make an effort to catch with one hand.
  • At knee height, slightly past the body, slightly above the head.
  • Halfway through the normal dribbling height, the ball is brought to the other dribbling hand with a wrist strike via a flat bounce.
  • At the moment the movement is started, the right leg steps forward,
  • so that the ball can reach the left hand unimpeded.
  • The ball passes in front of the left foot.
  • The ball is taken low with the other hand.
  • After the takeover the body turns over the left foot between the ball and the defender,
  • where the free (bent) arm again has a protective function.

  • In the speed dribble, the upper body makes an angle of less than 90 degrees with the ground.
  • This is highly dependent on the speed at which the dribble is performed. The higher the speed, the smaller the angle.
  • The dribbling arm is directed more forward due to the speed.
  • The dribble is between hip and chest height; the ball is pushed powerfully to the ground and lands next to the shoulder axis in front of the feet.
  • If there are no defenders around, the free arm has a balancing function
  • If this is not the case, the dribbler will initially try to increase his speed in order to shake off the defender
  • If this does not work, he can use his free arm to prevent the opponent from taking the ball.
  • Obviously, this will be at the expense of speed.
  • The walking speed must be in accordance with the dribbler's level; walking and dribbling must not hinder each other.
  • The knees and ankles are bent strongly during the low dribble, allowing the ball to stay extra low to the ground.
  • The torso and head, on the other hand, remain practically straight.
  • The gaze is directed towards the opponent(s) and the rest of the field of play
  • The free (slightly bent) arm is turned towards the opponent and has a protective function.
  • If the situation requires, the body is brought between the opponent and the ball.

  • Bringing the ball up to the attacking half.
  • Fast break.
  • When the way to the basket is clear.
  • One-on-one situations.
  • Drive, between defenders.
  • Freeing up to get into a better shot position or passing opportunity.
  • Escape from a situation where passing is simply not possible and the ball must be protected.
  • Players are spread out in the room; everyone has a ball.
  • The ball is held between the legs with two hands. The right hand is in front of the body and the left hand behind the body.
  • The ball must be prevented from falling to the floor by changing hands very quickly.
  • Attacker/defender start just right of midcourt next to each other.
  • Attacker starts on the right.
  • Passer behind (coach if necessary). Lob pass, roll or other.
  • free play on 1 or 2 baskets, depending on the number of players.
  • PURPOSE: Quick passing, cutting, helpside, ballside, boxing-out.
  • First team at 5.
  • Loser push-ups 6.
  • Circle the ball alternately around: hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, chest, head.
  • Foot Stride; circle the ball first around the different parts of the front leg, then the back leg.
  • Spreading stance; same as previous exercise.
  • As previous exercise. After each circle alternate with the other leg.
  • Eight circle.
