Basketball dribble practice
To be able to dribble well and accurately, there are several things you pay attention to. Here’s how to do basic basketball techniques for dribbling:
1. Keep your head up and focus on the game
The basketball is not a small ball, so to reach over the ball and hold it steady, you need to spread your fingers wide.
2. Extend your arms and move your wrists to bounce the ball to the ground
3. When dribbling, use your fingers, not your palms, to control the ball.
Whether you want to dribble fast or slow, hold the ball steady and run left or right, using your fingertips to control the ball.
4. Do not bounce the ball too high while dribbling
This movement is the main part of a dribble movement. Hand force concentration needs to be considered when bouncing the ball on the field.
5. Use your arms and body to shield the ball from defenders.
To do this, two things need to be done, namely:
Raise the other hand not being used for dribbling as protection so that the opponent cannot easily reach the ball.
Place the ball on the opposite side of the opponent with a slight bend or turn, so that the ball is secured against the back.
