August 31, 2007, Newsletter Issue #310: Proper Dribbling Position

Tip of the Week

Basketball dribbling is one of the key techniques in the game. So what's the proper dribbling position? Try this drill.

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Your torso should be kept straight and your knees should be slightly bent.  Let your arms hang straight down at the sides.  The back of your hands face forward, the palms face backward.  Flick your wrists upward and let them come back without any additional effort.  Practice this drill for one minute.

Want to use both hands for basketball dribbling? Try this.

Bend your knees so they are a few inches away from the ground in a squat position.  The feet are shoulder width apart, arms extended downward, elbows slightly bent and  hands straight down.  Start with the right hand and flick the wrist upward.  Hold the position for 20 seconds. Switch to the left hand and hold the position for 20 seconds.  Practice this drill for two minutes.
