Players work on starting from and pulling up from a variety of spots on the floor in this intermediate dribbling moves drill.

Hesitation Go and Pull Up Basketball Dribbling Drill

How it Works

  1. Begin behind the arc, taking a dribble hard towards the hoop.
  2. Hesitate, straightening up and setting your feet as if about to stop and take the outside jumpshot.
  3. Explode forward with another left hand dribble.
  4. Pull up for the jump shot at about 12-15 feet.
  5. Grab the rebound, sprint back out to the wing and repeat.  Make 10 from each wing, splitting half on left and right hand dribbles.

Coaching Tips

  • You can also use a stutter step instead of a hesitation – chopping the feet down quickly before exploding.
