    The V drill is a great way to improve dribbling touch. I like to run this drill with my players, and have them look at me. I usually keep showing numbers with my fingers to force them to look up.

      Thanks Coach Steve for the feedback! This is an awesome drill to utilize with young players as they can perform several dribbling options in one drill. I like the idea of holding numbers up to force kids to keep their head up. I use to perform this drill and always wear the basketball goggles so that I couldn’t look down which helped me dribble without looking. I also think having kids to perform this drill while in motion is always a good option.
