Extreme Drills
These drills involve the use of two balls at the same time. It may sound crazy to beginners, but many coaches make their students practice with two basketballs in their drills. It’s a pretty straightforward concept. When practice is tougher than the actual activity, you efficiency in the activity increases greatly. Most drills can be done with two balls. It helps make things harder for the player. These drills require greater focus and superior limb coordination than your average dribbling drills. So make sure you’re at a sufficient level of proficiency in the previous drills before trying these. Each drill is to be performed from a fixed position at first, and some of them can later be performed on the move.

Starter: Take one ball in each hand and dribble them simultaneously, trying to maintain the same height and speed on both.

Alternating: Dribble both balls simultaneously but alternate the speeds and heights on each hand. Pistons: Pound the balls down alternately as if your hands were pistons.

Pass and Cross: Take one ball in each hand. Dribble the right one, passing the one in the left hand to the right and catching the dribbled ball with your left hand. That’s one rep. Repeat it for 20-30 times. Then do the reverse.

Windmill Solo: Spread your legs and bend down a little lower. Dribble the ball in your left hand, and at the same time, dribble the right hand ball around your right foot. Dribble it from the back and catch it at the front, quickly bringing it to the back. Repeat in the other direction and repeat again with your other foot. Windmill Alternate: Do the windmill on both your legs alternately.

Crossover: Dribble both balls in the opposite direction and catch them with the other hand. Repeat it and gain speed.

Crossover Switch: Switch your legs alternately while doing the two ball crossover. You’ll have to really push yourself for this one. Remember, diligence is the key. Some of these drills may seem very daunting at first, but keep at it and you’re going to feel your dribbling skills skyrocketing in no time.

Shooting In the end, it is all about scoring. And for that, you have to know how to shoot. Here are some fundamentals for developing a good shooting technique.

Hold: How you hold the ball in your hands is extremely important while shooting. You have a shooting hand and an aiding hand. If you’re right-handed, your right hand is your shooting hand, and if you’re left-handed, your left hand is your shooting hand. Keep in mind that you must always hold the ball with your fingertips with a firm grip, with a small air pocket between your palm and the ball. The ball never touches the palm.

Arc: A good arc is essential to scoring. People are often confused about how high the arc should be. If you are also confused, just remember that the ball should reach a maximum height of three to four feet above the hoop. That is the ideal range for a shot and by consistently staying in that range, you maximize your chances of scoring. It’s an angle of around 45 to 55 degrees. Any higher than that and you may lose distance control, any lower and you risk the ball rebounding off the rim. Range: You should always work on extending your shooting range. Once you’ve mastered the two-pointer and free throw, you should start working on perfecting your three-pointer shot and deep three-pointer to really press your abilities. A good consistent three-pointer shot can make all the difference between a good shooter and a great shooter.

Aim: Your aim should not be the front of the rim or the back of the rim, because in either case you risk the shot staying short or going long. What you should do is imagine a five-inch fence on the top of the rim and a smaller circle inside the rim. You have to aim for the little circle and place your short in such a manner that it also passes over the imaginary fence. This will ensure that even if you miss the smaller circle, you still score most of the times.

Follow-through: Always follow through on your shot and hold it. You’ve heard it a hundred times already, yes. But that’s only because it’s that important. It’s essential to maintaining good form and finding out the problems with your technique.
