In this video, you will learn about an exercise to practice attacking the basket while dribbling.
In this exercise, concentrate on these three points: Orientating your feet, starting the dribble, and shooting.
First, orientating your feet.
Before starting, place cones over the three point line on either side of the extension of the free throw line. These cones will represent the defenders.
Pass the ball to yourself to catch the ball behind a cone.
Once you catch the ball pivot quickly on the foot closest to the basket
You can also pivot on the foot which is the furthest from the basket
Second, beginning the dribble.
Perform a direct drive to attack the basket, going around the cone.
You can also make a crossed drive, taking off with the foot opposite to the one you are dribbling with
Do it as soon as you've orientated your feet
Third, taking a shot
With a maximum of two dribbles, shoot with a lay-up
After a dribble, you can also stop around the key to shoot
Practice from both sides of the basket, with both cones. Keep your knees bent, and hold the ball low
Practice varying your pivots, drives and shots. During games, these are the weapons that can help you win games! Over to you!
