In today’s video blog post, we are talking about the Chase Drill or “Wolf” dribbling drill.

Chase Drill or “Wolf” Dribbling Drill

This dribbling drill is great because it offensively works on controlled dribble and avoiding the guy who is chasing from behind, trying to knock the ball loose. It also works dribbling in game-like scenarios.

Whenever our point guard has the basketball and is advancing up court, and one of our team realizes that there is someone coming from behind, we’ll yell “Wolf”, and that is his cue to switch hands, or to look around his shoulders to realize there is a guy coming who is ready to knock the ball away.

How to run the “Chase” or Wolf Dribbling Drill

  • Start players at the baseline, and the player on offense takes one step forward, so he has a one step lead.
  • As soon as the ball is in the air, the offensive player is going to take it, and bust out.
  • The chaser or “wolf” is going to try to knock the ball from behind.
  • The players will work the length of the court, try to score and be under control.
