Basketball Drill Demonstration


  • 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.

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:

• Crossovers
• Behind-the-back
• Through-the-legs

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.
