This is a great drill that focuses on building dribbling stamina and agility.

Commandos Basketball Dribbling Drill

How it Works

  1. Players form 3 lines at free throw line extended, coach places 3 corresponding cones at halfcourt.
  2. Each player will have a ball, on coach’s command player will push the ball hard to the cone.
  3. Upon reaching the cone, the player will come to a jumpstop, maintain his dribble, and spin back the other direction.
  4. Player will dribble hard to free throw line extended, and spin back the other direction.
  5. Player will continue going back and forth for 30 seconds, with the next player in line taking over immediately after.

Coaching Tips

  • Make it harder: Have players perform the same drill – with two basketballs.
  • Make it easier: Have players go just 3 lengths – down, back and down again – before bringing in the next player in line.
