How can I increase agility with my ball handling?

Crab Walk

This drill can go from baseline to half court. Step forward with your left leg and pass the ball from your right hand to your left under your left leg. As you take your next step with your right leg, pass the ball from your left hand to your right under your right leg. Continue this pattern all the way down the floor and back.

With the crab walk, or any other distance drill, usually five-ten reps is sufficient. Stationary drills should be done in minute intervals, switching hands after the first minute.

when I think of crab walk, I think of a conditioning drill. Walking belly button up, and using your arms as hind "legs".
