Basketball Dribbling Drills

Learn the Pro Basketball Dribbling Drills and Secrets from Trevor Huffman in Our FREE 365 Basketball Newsletter..

Hello, I'm Trevor Huffman, pro point guard (of 13 years) and 20 year professional skill development trainer and coach. 

I guarantee you'll see results in my 365 Basketball Training System in 30 days or less with signing up to follow our basketball dribbling drills system of training.

4 Reasons Your Basketball Dribbling Drills Don't Really Work

1.) You don't have a proven dribbling drill practice plan built on intensity and drill progressions. Our program is designed for players that aren't in the top 10% of athletes and will create next level basketball moves.

2.) We plan with the end in mind. If you don't know how to do that, you need to start listening. 365 days a year of training and playing stronger, faster, and smarter is our goal.

3.) You aren't that good, but you think you are! You think you work hard, but you don't. Sorry to burst your bubble, but the art of basketball never stops and you aren't inspired or motivated enough to be the best. Or are you?

4.) You lack confidence due to fear of failure. By continuing to get out of your comfort zone and increase your confidence, intensity, and progress to our harder skill movement drills, you and your team will become a more efficient and valuable basketball asset.

365-Basketball Philosophy:

  1. Never BE AFRAID TO TRY OR FAIL, in fact, find it, seek it out and do it daily. By experimenting or trying, you learn to adapt. Pretty soon, with our workouts, drills, and tips, you learn to succeed.
  2. Find inspiration and a plan with us (365 days a year)! Then take action. At 365-BASKETBALL.COM, we will push you to be inspired and get out of your comfort zone daily.
  3. It takes 30 days to begin making a new habit or skill. Push your brain, body, and physiology to acquire next level habits, skills, and movement patterns by following our daily training system to get better faster.
  4. Find a mentor and learn from the best in your field. Question us. Question everyone. Study, watch tape, invest in yourself, surround yourself with the best, hardworking college and pro players, and listen to what they tell you and put it into action. 
  5. Continue to seek, compete, and play against the best players, whether they are of a higher age, skill level, or athletic ability, evaluate your weaknesses/strengths, and then tailor your plan accordingly.

Eight Elite Dribbling Secrets:

  1. Learn from the best point guards on Earth: this is called copying the best practice (which means copying their method, process, or activity, that is believed to be more effective at delivering a particular outcome).
  2. Basketball dribbling drills and ball handling skills must start with a solid foundation. There can be no progress from 1-ball drills to 2-ball drills (or even 3-ball dribbling drills) until the first progression of movement is mastered.
  3. I wouldn’t let you cook a gourmet meal for 1000 guests unless I had trained you how to mix, prepare, and execute cooking all the ingredients together. It would be utter failure for you to try. It’s no different with youth basketball training and coaching player development.
  4. Increase the amount of ball-in-hand-time through learning to progress through our ball-handling skill drills. What is ball-in-hand-time? The amount of time you can possibly hold the ball through dribbling moves without traveling. This in turn increases the capacity of more explosive moves, a better overall handle, and different offensive combinations to take place.
  5. Reinforcing proper movement patterns that are in line with efficient exercise science techniques, i.e.—teaching a sprinter to stand up straight out up out of the blocks would be incorrect and slow them down considerably. Many coaches dismiss the very thing that makes players faster, quicker, and more explosive on the court, which in turn, decreases a player’s value to the team!
  6. Learn, study, deliberately practice, and analyze your footwork at all times. This is key to basketball success—for the best point guards, shooting guards, and big men—learning progressive footwork combinations will ultimately increase your value on the court ten-fold!
  7. Basketball I.Q. What is it? How do you get it? The best coaches are able to impart this key attribute to players through proper coaching and mentoring. Obviously, playing a lot of basketball helps (and against better competition), but there are many players and coaches that lack the resources, competition, and training opportunities to increase Basketball I.Q. We teach this in our OtterBasketball training system—how to make reads, when to pass, when to dribble, when to attack, and when to pull it back.
  8. Basketball I.Q. is the amount of intelligence you apply on the court to help make your team better. Let’s start increasing your I.Q. by watching our basketball dribbling drills video introduction here:
