There are many 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 will this drill 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. With the two ball attack basketball drill, you will be able to work on multiple areas of your game all in the same drill.
A big part of this two ball basketball dribbling drill is learning to pass off the dribble. When making a pass off of the dribble, you will not always 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 basketball dribbling drill will 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.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- The player will start at half court with two basketballs, and the coach/partner will start at the free-throw line.
- When the drill starts, the player will dribble the basketballs towards the coach with an alternating dribble (you can also work on dribbling both basketballs simultaneously).
- As the player gets close to the 3 point line, the coach will 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 will 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.
