How to improve ball handling and dribbling skills

Add a Tennis Ball to Your Dribbling Practice

Find a friend and a tennis ball to amp up your dribbling practice. While you are dribbling, ask your friend to bounce pass the tennis ball to you from about 10 feet away. Your friend should mix-up the tennis ball bounces. Bouncing the tennis ball to the right, to the left, fast and slow keeps you on your toes. You will have to change your dribble as the passer changes the throws to catch the tennis ball while you are dribbling. Pass the tennis ball back to your friend and never lose your dribble. Keep this up for fifteen minutes a day. Count out loud the number of balls you have caught in a row while dribbling. Try to improve each day.
