Advanced Ball Handling Workout With Double & Triple Moves



This workout is for players with an advanced skill set. You will practice challenging double and triple dribble move combinations and a few challenging 2-ball and 3-ball drills to warm up.

If you practice these drills and dribble moves and get outside your comfort zone by going so hard that you make some mistakes, dribbling during games will feel much easier.

1v1 Advancement



Description

OPTIONAL DRILL. If you have a partner, you can use this 1v1 drill.

Choose a playing area 30-90 feet long and 15-40 feet wide. Play 1on1 trying to advance the ball to the other end of the playing area. The defender is playing all out trying to stop you from advancing the ball.

If you advance the ball all the way to the end without losing the ball, picking it up with two hands, or going out of bounds... then you get one point. If the defense stops you, they get one point.


Points of Emphasis

  • Keep your eyes up.
  • Protect the ball.
  • Change your speed and change direction to keep the defender off balance.
  • Retreat dribble when you're in a bad spot (ex: pinned along the sideline) and then go to open space.
  • Try to keep the ball in the middle of the floor (away from the sidelines).
  • Practice your dribble moves. Be creative and try new things to learn how to beat a defender 1on1.
  • Don't be afraid to try new things and make mistakes. Use this time to develop creativity and find new ways to solve problems (advance the ball).


Run drill for 180 seconds



Find A Workout Partner for 1v1 Drills

Even though this is an individual workout, find a workout partner and practice realistic and productive 1v1 drills as well. It will help your ball handling tremendously if you can practice against a defense too.
