Steve Nash Passing Series Drill with Bob Bigelow

Home > Coaching > Drills > Passing > Steve Nash Passing Series Drill with Bob Bigelow
This is the Steve Nash 1-hand passing series drill from Bob Bigelow's Coaching Middle School Basketball DVD.

This is great for ball handling, hand-eye coordination, catching, ambidexterity, and passing. You can also use a wall if you are by yourself.

  • Catch - Dribble - Pass.
  • Catch - Crossover dribble - Pass.
  • Catch - Behind the back dribble - Pass.
  • Catch - Between the legs dribble - Pass.
You can vary the amount of dribbles on all of the variations as well. For example, Catch - 2 crossover dribbles - pass.

The variations only end with your imagination.

These are great drills that I will plan to incorporate this fall. I coach 4th-6th graders and we typically have several new players with little to no experience and this will not only help them but it will also begin to sharpen up the skills of my more skilled players.

I like the drills, i believe the passing drills espercially the one handed drills can help with strengthening a players weaker hand.

Great drills! Most of our kids need to work on passings skills. this will challenge especially the older ones!

I really like these ... I coach 4th and 5th grade girls and am always looking for "simple" drills that can be taught/explained quickly. I think the chest/bounce drill could be done with the players moving (shuffling down the court 10-15 feet apart), as a warmup drill, too. Thanks for the ideas!

Great stuff! Thanks!! Triangles or small squares of 3 and 4 players respectively can also work adding reversals and diagonal passing.

Very good drills to do.

We did this in one of my classes over the summer, except #5.

Really helps the players to concentrate.

I''''''''m not sure about this...I like to teach young players to use both hands because they cannot bring back a one handed pass in a game situation. However, I do see this working well with advanced players.

Love the basketball, but almost more importantly is his sense of humor used throughout the series. Refreshing!

Ball control!! As a young player I was taught that proper dribbling and passing started with ball control. In other words, the better you control the ball at dribbling, passing, shooting, etc., the better you can have the freedom to do what you want on the court. I teach the same to younger players and my son and daughter. Ball control...ball control...ball control!!!
