Basketball Drill Demonstration


Players take it in turns to dribble at the cone and then stop right in front of it and dribble all the way around the cone with controlled fingertip dribbles.

Once a full rotation has been completed then you move on to the next cone.

Coaching points

  • Vision (eyes up)
  • Body position and stance (“big chest”, chest out, chip up, flexion at knee and hip)
  • Use of the fingers tips not palms


  • Change hands so go around each cone with the left hand.
  • Instead of small dribbles, go normal dribbles but move your whole body in a circle around the cone before advancing.
