Youth Ball Handling and Skills Camp in Indianapolis Indiana...


This youth ball handling and skills camp will occur on August 2-3, in Indianapolis, IN. We have arranged for Quentin Mitchell to conduct a 2 day basketball camp players and coaches will learn new ball handling skills and strategies that will increase any players confidence.


Improve Your Ballhandling

During the camp you'll receive both instruction and intense training to develop exceptional ballhandling skills and dribbling moves.

The camp will help you...

  • Reduce turnovers and handle any game situation.
  • Beat your defender off the dribble.
  • Create your own shot and scoring opportunities with the dribble.
  • Create space and separation from the defense.
  • Improve decision making and overall ballhandling skill.

No matter what your skill level, you'll be challenged and make tremendous improvement to your game.

If you already have some skill with the ball, this camp will take your ability to the next level making you very hard to guard off the bounce.

If you're a beginner that struggles with the ball, this camp will help you improve your confidence with the ball, help you reduce turnovers, and help you quickly take your ballhandling skills to the next level.

We will provide you with drills, training, instruction, and a logical program to improve based on your skill level.

More Ballhandling and Scoring Topics Covered

  • Proper progressions for the dribble moves.

    We will break down how to effectively progress through dribble moves. Learn these vital progressions that most trainers skip that result in poorly executed dribble moves.

  • 6 things you need to know to be a great ball handler.

    You can be an extremely effective ball handler by knowing and practicing six things. Most players and coaches make things too complicated. But dribbling effectively is simple. You don't need lots of moves. You just need EFFECTIVE moves.

  • How to be more effective with your dribble.

    In today's game, so many players misuse the dribble. They use it and lose their advantage against the defense. We will teach them how to effectively use the dribble and cover more space with fewer dribbles at faster pace.

  • Develop an explosive first step.

    Players usually don't work on this, but this is one of the most deadly weapons in the game of basketball. Due to our background in athletic development, we will incorporate speed drills that will make them faster and quicker with and without the ball.

  • Footwork (pivoting, starting, stopping, offensive moves)
