A great thing about doing stationary basketball dribbling drills is that they can be done pretty much anywhere that you have a hard flat surface. So whether you use your driveway, garage, or a sideline while others are playing on the court, you have space needed to work on your handles.
The windshield wiper reverse between the legs dribbling drill will help you develop quick hands and work on ball control. It combines the traditional windshield wiper dribbling drill with a reverse between the legs move. This is also a great basketball drill to use in a camp setting because it only requires one ball per player and doesn’t require much space.
