Spin and Go


This is a great dribbling drill that works on dribbling while spinning the body, and finishing with both hands.

Spin and Go Basketball Dribbling Drill

How It Works

Start out with the left wing, and take a hard dribble inside with your left hand,  Plant the right foot, and spin towards the baseline with the left foot.

Take one dribble to gather yourself and close on the rim.

Finish at the hoop with a strong right handed layup.

Grab the board, sprint out to the wing and do it again.

Drill is complete when you've made 10 layups (left and right hand) from each wing and the top of the arc.

Coaching Tips

Keep your hand on top of the ball - avoid the tendency to carry the ball through the spin.  It can be a good idea to work on finishing with the right hand on the left side and left hand on the right side - to keep prospective shotblockers on their toes when you attack the hoop!
