Progression Double Behind the Back Two Ball Basketball Dribbling Drill


This is a more advanced two ball basketball dribbling drill, but it can be very beneficial to a ball handler if mastered. It is a great basketball dribbling drill because it works on both hands simultaneously, and it makes you think about having to dribble two basketballs at the same time. Every time you do a move, you have to think about the other hand doing another move.

It is also great to work on the double behind the back move and improve overall hand-eye coordination and touch. With getting a lot of repetitions at the double behind the back move, you will have more confidence to use this move in a live-game situation. One of the reasons you use basketball drills like this is to develop confidence with all of your moves.
