This is a great basketball drill because it is compatible with a player doing a one person workout or an entire team. The drill is going to allow for players to work on ball handling with their off hand and also finishing at the rim. Forcing use of the off hand will keep players from always transferring the ball over to their strong hand when they get in trouble. It will help the player start to become comfortable and confident using their off hand.
Regardless of position this is a great drill to do because even a most player can benefit from being able to take a few outlet dribbles up the court to create a better passing angle after a rebound, or a kick ahead to a post player in transition where they need to put the ball down for a couple of dribbles before finishing at the rim.
Drill Name: Off Hand Development Drill
Drill Goal: Develop your off hand dribbling the basketball and finishing at the rim.
Equipment Needed: 1 basketball per player or 4-6 basketballs for the whole group, 4 chairs, and a full court.
Tips: Keep your eyes up scanning the floor the whole time while you are dribbling the basketball. Make great change of pace moves when you go buy the chair defender. Don't rock the ball when you go to finish. You can assign a specific finish (athletic finish, floater, runner, reverse, euro, pro hop, one hand quick finish, etc.) or leave it up to the player on the finish.
Directions: Set up a chair on each elbow and have a line of players under each basket. At the same time a player from each line is going to attack the chairs to their left make a dribble move at each chair and then finish with a left hand finish. The next player in line will go repeat the same action, continue this cycle. The first move that the player(s) will make at each chair is a hesitation and go move, the second move will be an in and out, and the third move will be a retreat dribble to an in and out move. It is up to you how many times a player does each move, but usually down and back twice is a good standard.
