Basketball Catching Drills

The catching videos show the correct technique your players should use when receiving the ball, while developing their ball handling skills from a front pass or while turning.

The videos in this category will develop your players' ability to perform the two main catches in basketball: the two-handed (both hands contact the ball simultaneously) and the block and tuck method (one hand contacts the ball, followed immediately by the other).

Basketball catching tips:

  • Watch the ball into your hands
  • Do not point your fingers directly at the ball
  • Use "soft" hands - cushion the ball using relaxed hands, wrist, elbow, and shoulder
