Here are two [tag]basketball practice drills[/tag] we do about everyday. The first drill is to get communication and work on outlets, getting back and seeing the floor. The second drill works on dribbling and ball handling.
Start with a white shooting a free throw with two black rebounding, the black then go 2 on 1, then we add two whites coming back to make it 3 on 2 and then two black to go 4 on 3 and then two whites to go 5 on 4 and then add the last white to go 5 on 5 both directions.
It is a great drill for high school [tag]girls basketball[/tag].
This next drill I do with my younger team, 3rd and 4th graders. Give each one a [tag]basketball[/tag] and let them play tag. They must stay on the court and keep dribbling.
They learn to stop, cut and dribble without looking down at the ball about half-way through the drill we switch to weak hand. It’s a real simple drill but the kids really enjoy it.
