Hi Dirk,

In the videos, we have posted, they do not use the dribble. However, there are drop-steps where you may use the dribble. To read more about it, visit:

We talk about the dribble in the comments below.

In your post move drills (dropstep)

Do you dribble in between the legs on your drop step or where do you dribble?

Thanks for leaving a message.

Bye Dirk

Great Stuff!
Do you have a good youth zone offense play?
The age group is 7th and 8th grade.
It is a traveling team, so theses kids can handle a not so easy play. I would appreciate and thoughts and comments.
