Ball 4 All dribbling programs
One Ball Stationary Drills
-Off The Wall Dribble: Stand in front of a wall. Hold a ball in your hand and then dribble
it against the wall. Do the same for both hands. As you progress stand further and further back and dribble the ball.
-Finger Dribble: This is a great exercise for increasing strength in the fingers as well as grip for each finger. Start
by dribbling the ball with your thumb and do this times. Then move on to your index finger and do the same. Continue with
all your fingers and move on to your other hand.
-Ball Slaps: Put a basketball on one hand then slap it over to
your other hand quickly and do this repeatedly as quick as possible. It is important to limit the time the ball hits your
fingers and also only use your fingers and wrists to move the ball.
-Circles: There are 4 types of Circles: Head,
Waist, Legs, and Corkscrew. The first 3 you just circle the ball around what it says as fast as you can(i.e. waist- go as
fast as you can around your waist.), but once you get all 3 of those down try the corkscrew. You go head, waist, legs, waist,
head without stopping. Try to do it both clockwise and counter clockwise.
-Ricochet: Stand with your legs spread
apart and hold the ball with both hands in front of you. Bounce it in between your legs, then catch the ball behind you. Now
bounce it back to the front. Do this as quickly as you can. Be careful that you don't hurt yourself with this drill!
-Scissors: This is a simple drill to do. Stand like you would if you were going to dribble the ball in between your legs.
Then dribble between your legs, but as soon as your other hand touches the ball switch the position of your feet(i.e. if your
right foot was in front and your left foot in back, make your left foot in front, and you right one back) and bounce the ball
back in between your legs. Repeat this over and over.
-Figure 8: Same thing as the circles except you go in a figure
8 around your legs.
-Figure 8 Dribble: Same as the figure 8 but you dribble low and fast.
Dribble the ball with one hand in a "V". Do both hands.
-Between The Leg V Dribble: Go down on 1 knee
then dribble the ball with both hands under your lead leg. Do both legs
-Front To Back V Dribble: Same as the V
Dribble except instead of going left to right go front to back on one side of you. Do both hands.
Dribble: Stand with your legs spread apart, drop the ball in front of you. Now hit it with your right hand and then your left
hand, then reach behind you and hit it with your right hand then left hand, then reach in front of you again and hit with
your right hand then left hand, and then behind you again...
