Basketball HQ Monday: Circle 2 Basketball Dribbling Drill

Regardless of what position you play, ball handling drills can add a lot of value to your game. If you are a post player they will help you become more versatile and also improve your overall hand coordination; if you are a guard they are a must. This basketball drill is going to work on ball control and then being comfortable dribbling with either hand. Using two basketballs at the same time forces the player to dribble with their weak hand, and it also adds a level of difficulty to the drill.

Drill Goal: Work on quick hands, ball control, and developing both hands.

Equipment Needed: 2 basketballs.

Tips: Stay low the whole time and challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone. Really work on controlling the basketballs and putting them where you want them to go.

Directions: Stand in an athletic stance with your feet spread. Take one stationary dribble with both basketballs and then dribble the basketball in your right hand around and reverse between your legs to your left hand, at the same time dribble the basketball in your left hand in front of you to your right hand. Continue this pattern for 20-30 seconds and then switch to your left leg for 20-30 seconds. Finally use an alternating pattern and switch legs each time, similar to a figure 8 pattern.
