1Hey Coach,
I'm 13 and I can dribble very good with my left hand but not with my right. I'm right-handed and shoot very good with my right hand but I don't know why I dribble better with my left. Do you know any workouts that can help with dribbling in basketball?

Hey zaarour917,

Learning to handle the ball well with both hands is very important for basketball players. When practicing your ball handling, make sure that you practice at least as much with your weak hand as you do your strong hand. Here are a couple of drills you can use to increase your dribbling and ball handling skills.

Two-ball Dribbling Drill - this drill will help you improve hand speed, ball control and your ability to dribble with both hands.

  • Dribble in a circle for 30 seconds with two basketballs, one for each hand.
  • It is all right to look down at the basketballs while doing this drill, but after a while try keeping your head up, so you will really improve.
  • Do between 2 or 3 sets of this drill each day - going as fast as you can and staying as low as possible.

    Tom-Tom Dribble

  • Spread your legs and dribble the basketball with your right hand then pass it to the left hand.
  • Dribble the ball with your left hand and pass it between your legs to the right hand.
  • Dribble the ball with your right hand, behind your back and pass it to the left hand.
  • Then dribble the ball back to the right hand in front of your body.
  • Repeat this drill 10 times. This will help improve your ball handling and dribbling with both hands.

    Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
