Dribbling Lines – Dribbling Drill

dribble lines 1Overview:

This is a simple drill to teach the basics of dribbling to new players.

It’s a good way to introduce new moves without overwhelming them and will also help to improve the technique of the movements players already know.

Setup:

Every player has a basketball and lines up on the baseline.

If you have more than 8 players, create two lines on the baseline instead of one.

How it Works:

The coach will instruct the players to use different dribbling movements to dribble up to either the half-court line or full court.

Tell them the dribble movement you want to be performed first, and then say ‘go’.

Here are a few that I like to use:

• Right hand up, left hand back
• Crossovers
• Behind-the-back
• Through-the-legs
• Dribble low
• Dribbling backwards

Coaching Points:

  • Players must keep their heads up at all times.
  • Once they develop good technique, focus on the players pushing off with their outside foot when making a move.
  • Write down the dribbling moves so that you don’t forget them. I always do!
