Crossover Steps Partner Line Footwork Basketball Drill


Whether you are coming off a down screen for a shot or making a post move, you need to have good footwork. This basketball footwork and agility drill will help you develop great footwork that will translate to so many areas of play.

By having to catch the basketball and rotate it around your waist, you are forcing yourself to have good footwork while doing something else. If you have to think about your footwork when you are going for a shot rather than thinking about making the shot, your percentage will suffer. Basketball drills like this will make sure that your footwork is better for whatever skill you are looking to execute during a game.
