Tight Spaces Reverse Between the Legs Basketball Drill

 

This one ball basketball dribbling drill is great for keeping the basketball tight to your body while dribbling and scoring the basketball. If you are loose with the ball, you will invite the defender to pick your pockets. You won’t be able to concentrate on running the offense or seeing open teammates because you will be too nervous about the defender.

Also, if a defender steps in front of you or reaches for the basketball, you need to quickly change the basketball to your other hand. This basketball drill will help you get good at putting the ball from hand to hand in tight spaces where there is not a lot of room to dribble.

Coaching Points

  • Keep your feet light on the floor, ball tight to your body, eyes up, and don’t be afraid to mess up.
  • If you lose the ball during the drill, that is okay because you are pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.

 

Basketball Drill Instructions

  • Make a line of 5 cones, each about a foot apart, starting at half court and going to the top of the key.
  • The player is going to start with a basketball at half court.
  • At each cone, the player will take a rhythm dribble and then do a reverse between the legs move.
  • Once the player gets past the last cone, they will push the ball out in front of them and either pull up for a jump shot or take it to the basket for a finish.

** The coach can decide on the finish before the drill starts if desired.
