Players learn to dribble two balls while moving on the court.

Two Ball Speed Power Basketball Dribbling Drill

How it Works

  1. Begin at one sideline, holding a ball in each hand.
  2. Round 1: Speed dribble to the other site of the court and back.  Push both balls out in front of you and sprint full speed.
  3. Round 2: Power dribble to the other side of the court and back.  Get low and pound the ball into the ground moving at fast walking speed.
  4. Round 3: Speed dribble halfway across the court, then switch to the power dribble for the second half.  Repeat on the way back.
  5. Repeat the same sequence again.

Coaching Tips

  • On the speed dribble, try to cross the entire court in as few dribbles as possible.
  • On the power dribble, try to cross the court using as many dribbles as possible.
  • Make it easier: Use a junior sized ball that is extra pumped up.
  • Make it harder: Have a partner push you with a blocking pad during the power dribble portion.
