BasketballHQ Two Ball Workoutby Kyle Ohman
Two ball basketball dribbling drills work well because the player can work on both hands at the same time. This will help to maximize basketball training time and also force the player to work on their weak hand. These two ball drills are really good for youth basketball players who have a bad habit of always transferring the basketball to their strong hand when they get in trouble, and by have the player dribble two basketball at the same time you eliminate this crutch. Another reason that two ball dribbling drills are good, is because the extra ball puts added difficulty on the move or the drill. The thinking behind this is to make the move more difficult than it would be in a game with only one basketball. That way when the player does the same move in a game it is much easier to do for them to do. The player is more comfortable with the move and they can focus on seeing the floor, and making the right play. Two Ball Basketball Dribbling Drills for Coaches Two ball drills can be used to warm up before practice or during your basketball training. A big key though to helping your players get the most out of the drills is to make sure that they are pushing themselves as hard as they can. It is okay for them to mess up and lose the basketball, it should actually be encouraged (if they are going their hardest). That way when the player gets back into a game situation and slows their dribble back down to normal, they will be really comfortable handling the ball. Two Ball Basketball Dribbling Drills for Players When you do these drills you want to make sure that you are keeping your dribble tight, staying in an athletic stance, and keeping your eyes up to see the floor. Practice good habits and don’t be afraid to mess up. You should aim to do dribbling drills at least 2-3 times a week for 15-20 minutes each time, and you can rotate which type of basketball dribbling drills you do as well.
