Players learn to dribble through the legs and go to the basket for the shot.

Through the Legs and Go Basketball Dribbling Drill

How it Works

  1. Starting a couple feet behind the arc, take a dribble forward with your left hand.
  2. Bounce the ball through your legs, crossing over to your right hand.
  3. Explode out of the crossover with a had dribble towards the hoop.
  4. Finish at the rim with the right hand.
  5. Secure the board, run back out to the wing and repeat.  Make 5 layups starting from the right wing, then move to the left wing and finally the top of the arc.

Coaching Tips

  • Experiment with change of pace, using different speeds to maximize the effectiveness of the crossover.
  • If you’re having a hard time imagining a defender, you can put a chair or cone down to emulate one.
