Advanced Basketball Cone Dribbling Drills
- Players should plant their feet when changing direction
- Stay low with your dribble throughout the entire drill
- Protect and control the ball as you dribble
- Beginner players should start with fewer cones
- Keep your head up as you dribble
- Pound the basketball on the attack dribbles, make a quick move when changing direction
- Push your self with speed, change of direction, and agility in this basketball drill
- Basketball moves to use: behind the back, crossover, between the legs, in & out crossover, double crossover (will go back in the same direction), and any other advanced moves.
- Use one move from the start to the end
- The last phase of this drill, mix up the moves you make at each cone (ex. crossover at the first cone, behind the back at the second cone, etc..)
- Set up 8 cones in a straight line the full length of the court
- Players start on the baseline in an attack position
- Player dribbles to the first cone with the right hand. Once he reaches the first cone he changes direction using any of the following basketball moves.
- basketball moves: behind the back, crossover, between the legs, in & out crossover, double crossover (will go back in the same direction), and any other advanced moves.
- The ball should go from your right hand to your left hand moving towards the 2nd cone
- Every time you get close to a cone you should be changing direction. The player continues this interchange all the way down the court.
- The player finishes at the rim (left or right hand) and speed dribbles back down to the beginning point of the drill
- The next player in line starts the drill when the previous player has reached the 3rd cone
- The 2nd player shouldn’t catch the 1st player
- NOTE: I would time yourself to see how long it takes you to go through several different moves to track your progression overtime
