Basketball drills for dribbling

  • Everyone a ball and distribute along the length of the field.
    • Dribble back and forth (jump stop, pivot across, or keep dribbling)
  • Variations:
    • Dribble left back, right back.
    • Tap lines along the way.
    • On the way 5x push ups, 10 abs, 30 sec taps.
    • Low dribble (fast left/right), high dribble with hop, backwards.
    • Between legs, behind the back, turn on axis.
  • Stationary:
    • Through legs (step out, dribble, step back), 8-step low dribble.

  • Everyone a ball
    • Outward zigzag dribble around cones
    • Midline backline sprint/dribble
    • Side/slides over the back line
    • Back various commands (Crabwalk, backwards dribble, between the legs)
    • 5x push-ups, abs on midline
    • Finish with lay-up or shot from the hoop
  • Start slowly as a warming-up
  • Then faster and faster (keep distance)
  • Coach lining up on the way back to give different assignments

All players a ball in a circle around the coach

  • Successively:
    • Right: normal dribble, through the knees, defend the ball
    • Right: normal dribble, look at the trainer, not at the ball
    • Left: normal dribble, through the knees, defend the ball
    • Left: normal dribble, look at the trainer, not at the ball
  • Right/left alternate:
    • High hard dribble
    • Very low dribble
    • Sit on the buttocks low dribble
    • Lying down low dribble
    • Left/Right dribble with 1 hand
    • Dribble Front/Back 1 hand
    • Dribble through the legs
    • Machine gun
  • 2 rows on the baseline, relay:
    • Quickly dribble with the right and back
    • Dribble with the left and back again
    • Backward dribble with right
    • Backward dribble with the left

  • 10 minutes:
    • 5'right
    • 5'left
  • 2 lines
    • right side 2 balls
    • Half of players right side
    • half of players left side to rebound
  • Player a does V-cut and gets ball from player b and stops in jump-stop.
  • He pivots (front left) with his left leg to the basket and gets into triple treath position.
  • After a fake shot, he leaves right-handed dribble, left leg big step past the cone to the basket for a lay-up.
  • Player c takes the rebound and goes to the other side for a shot at 45 degrees, after which he connects with the passers.
  • For fitness this is a good exercise:
  • The group has to line up and you let them start dribbling slowly.
  • As soon as the trainer blows the whistle, the last one in line should run forward.
  • Do this until everyone has run and then let them finish the circle.
  • One row on the baseline/corner and one row in the center circle with ball.
  • Pass to the corner and then run to the same corner and get the ball back at the post.
  • Then there are a number of possibilities such as open-step or crossover and 1 vs 0 to the basket.
  • Adjuster takes care of the rebound.

Everyone a ball

  • Outward zig/zag dribble around pawns and finish with lay-up
  • Back various assignments (Crabwalk, backwards dribble, between the legs) and also finish with lay-up
  • start quietly as a warming-up, then faster and faster
  • Coach lining up at the return to give various assignments.
  • Everyone has a ball.

  • All normal rules apply such as run and second dribble.
  • If you are tagged, you also become tagged.
