Emphasis:

  • 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..)

Instruction:

  • 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
