Players work on the speed dribble, a fast moving dribble ideal for the fast break

Drill Setup

  • Have the players spread out and form 5 lines along the baseline
  • Each player will need a ball

How it Works

  1. On the coach’s whistle, the first player in each line will push the ball out ahead of them with their right hand and speed dribble to half court.
  2. They will then touch the line and dribble back the same way, this time with the left hand.
  3. Next player in line takes off as soon as his team completes the drill.

Coaching Tips

  • Players should push the ball out front and catch up to it so they can take multiple strides with each dribble.
  • Make sure players keep ball at chest height and don’t switch hands as they are speed dribbling as this could cause them to lose control.
  • It’s also important they keep their hand on top of the ball to avoid any risk of a carrying violation.
