This drill will teach players to maintain a good, balanced body position while dribbling, with the feet shoulder-width apart.

In Out with Crossover Basketball Dribbling Drill

How it Works

  1. Starting with your right hand, dribble the ball toward the center of your body as though you’re making a crossover move, then back out towards your right side.
  2. During the in/out dribble, the ball should make a circular motion as it moves from in to out.
  3. After the in/out dribble, crossover from your right hand to your left hand.
  4. Make an in/out dribble with your left hand, then crossover to your right hand.
  5. Repeat for 30 seconds.

Coaching Tips

  • Use your imagination.  Picture when and how you would use this dribble move.
  • Make it easier: Remove the crossover from the drill and just focus on dribbling with one hand.
  • Make it harder: Lower your dribble and increase the speed.
