There are a lot of great basketball drills out there, but anytime you can do a quality drill that involves working on your handles, passing, and shooting all at the same time, good things are most likely going to happen. Not only do you work on all of these different areas of the game, but you also maximize your time in the gym. As a player or coach you want to make sure that you are not wasting time during your basketball training, and that you are getting the most out of your time in the gym. Well with the two ball attack basketball drill you are going to be able to work on multiple areas of your game all in the same drill.
A big part of this drill is learning to pass off of the dribble. When making a pass off of the dribble you are not always going to have the time to gather the ball with both hands and then make the pass. You may have to do a push pass with either hand to hit the open teammate on time. This drill is going to help you practice being able to quickly go from dribbling the basketball to making a push pass with either hand, and being accurate with the pass.
Drill Name: Two Ball Attack Basketball Drill
Drill Goal: Work on on ball handling, passing off the dribble, and shooting off of the dribble.
Equipment Needed: 2 basketballs and a partner.
Tips: The player needs to keep their eyes up, dribble the basketballs as hard as they can, and stay low in an athletic stance as the do the drill. Make the pass on a straight line to the coach/partner. You can use a different move besides the crossover after the pass if you want.
Directions: The player is going to start at half court with two basketballs and the coach/partner will start at the free through line. When the drill starts the player is going to dribble towards the coach with an alternating dribble (you can also work on same dribble if desired). As the player gets close to the 3 point line the coach is going to raise either their right hand or left hand, and when they do the player must push pass the ball with one hand that lines up with that side of the coach. After the player makes the pass they are going to make a crossover with the other ball and then shoot a pull up jump shot at the elbow. This completes one repetition for the drill.
