Tennis ball basketball dribbling drills are great ball handling drills because they place added difficulty on the player dribbling the basketball. This is done by making the player focus on tossing and catching the tennis ball while also keeping their dribble alive.
This allows the player to work on their ball handling while focusing on something else. In a game if the player has to worry about dribbling and is playing with their head down, they are not going to see the open teammate or be able to make the right play for their team.
All of these basketball drills are in HD video and also come with written instructions and tips. The expert basketball coach instructing the drill will breakdown the drill, and then a high level basketball player will demonstrate how to do the move. There are tennis ball drills for all different levels and ages as well so you will be able to start where you are comfortable and then progress from there.
Tennis ball drills are a great way for your players to develop their handles, and although most of the drills are challenging at first for the player, the drills are fun at the same time. That means that your players are going to be motivated to work hard and continue to get better. These drills are great for non ball handlers as well because you are working on developing their hands and their hand eye coordination. So if you have a post player that is constantly dropping passes try using some tennis ball drills to help him/her out.
If you struggle as a player to dribble a basketball with your eyes up then tennis ball dribbling drills are for you. The goal of these drills is to take all of your focus off of dribbling the basketball and put it on tossing and catching the basketball. That way you will get comfortable handling the basketball and focusing on something else. This is important so that you can see the floor, read the defense, and then make the right play. You can’t do any of this if you are only focused on dribbling and not turning the ball over. So make sure that you add some tennis ball dribbling drills to your basketball training when you get in the gym.
