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 idea behind practicing dribbling with two basketballs at the same time is that if the player can do the move with two basketballs, then they should be able to do the same move with only a single basketball. This will allow the player to be a lot more comfortable dribbling the basketball in a game and free them up to see the floor, read the defense, and make the right play.
All of these two ball basketball dribbling drills are instructed by an expert basketball coach in HD video and they also come with written text instructions as well. Not only is there an expert coach to instruct the basketball drills, but there is also a high level basketball player that will demonstrate the correct way to do each drill as well.
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.
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.
