The point guard is the straw that stirs the drink on the basketball floor, and though he or she generally does the majority of a basketball team's ball handling, all players should develop their ball handling skills. It is a core basketball skill for the guards and somewhat less important to the forwards, who in many cases should be discouraged from putting the ball on the floor at all. However, youth basketball coaches should have the long term development of their basketball players in mind. A player who is a forward or center at a young age may only grow tall enough to play guard by the end of high school, so even players who dribble less early in their development need to work hard on their ball handling skills.
One of the great things about ball control basketball drills is that you can do them anywhere, so it is easy to get in as much ball control practice as you want. This is a basketball skill that can be worked on at formal practices and we will share some ball control drills in this article, but players should be encouraged to take a basketball with them whenever they can and make a habit of working on their dribbling skills anytime they are walking around. We always say that basketball is a lifestyle, not just something that you do for a couple of hours at practice or during a game, and the great players don't just play the game: they live the game.
Below are some tips for proper basketball ball handling techniques as well as some fun drills for your youth basketball team’s practice. You can also find more free basketball skills & drills videos and tutorials online at websites like Weplay.com.
