This Bruin Ball Handling Drill is a great way for everyone on the team to warm up together and work on their ball handling. All of our players work on their ball handling, the point guards, wing players and post players need to have confidence in their ability to handle the ball. We have two lines of cones tightly spaced up the lane line. The players move cone to cone in a low athletic stance while keeping their dribble low and pounding the ball. We have a series of dribble moves the players get through during the 5 minute drill. You can implement some of your own moves or use the ones that we show and list in the video. Pounding the ball low and controlling it in their fingertips is important for the ball handler. Having their head up scanning the floor is critical in making good decisions. With the entire team working together in a drill it is a great way to get the energy going for practice and spread it from player to player.
