The 3 dribble toss double crossover tennis ball basketball drill is a great dribbling drill to work on the double-cross move while also working on your hand-eye coordination. This is the beginner version of the drill because you are adding 3 dribbles in between each move.
Once you start to get the hang of the drill, try to eliminate a dribble until you are down to doing the drill without any dribbles in between the double crossover move at all. Not only will these types of basketball drills work on your ball handling, but they will also help your post players to work on developing soft hands.
