This ballhandling drill is called “3 lines / 2 balls”. This is another great conditioning and ball handling drill.

Set Up

  • Begin with a hoop ball and a rubber basketball
  • Space out 3 players along the line at the end of the court under the basket


1.  On the GO! Command, the players will begin moving down the court, with the 2 outside players alternately passing the ball to the middle player.

2.  The first group will move down the court and back (which should take about 20 seconds), and then the second group will go.

3.  The second time through, players will use 2 basketballs and run with them, with the player on the outside dribbling with his outside hand between passes.
