The more you can dribble with confidence, the easier it is to move around on the court. This iSport lesson breaks down the progression of drills for improving your between-the-legs dribble. These dribbles are getting increasingly difficult. So it is a good idea to go through them in the order they're shown here. To begin the first drill -the stationary wrap- stand in the athletic position, head up, knees bent, chest forward, shoulder square, and hips bent. Dribble the ball once on your right side, then send the ball through your legs. Catch the ball with your left hand, dribble the ball once on your left side, and send the ball back through your legs to your right hand. To make the motion smooth, hop slightly off the ground and land on the balls of your feet. Keep the ball low and the bounce crisp. Make sure you stay at the same spot of the floor throughout the entire drill. Once you get this down add a little more movement and speed up the entire motion. As a progressive move you can also change it up so that each dribble goes through your legs, removing that side dribble. For this next drill -the upright walk- begin on the sideline. Walk up the entire sideline sending the ball through your legs inbetween each ride. Keep your head up and stay relaxed, your walk should be casual. Bounce the ball firmly so that you can time your dribble with each step. Let's go over the drills covered here. The stationary wrap focuses on the hand movements needed to dribble between your legs. Dribble once, then send the ball from one hand to the other between your legs. Once your other hand gets the ball, dribble once again and send it back between your legs to the first hand. The upright walk gets you used to dribbling through your legs while moving. Time your bounce, so that it happens just as your front foot hits the court with each step. Start slow and stay relaxed as you walk up the sideline.
