It’s halfway through summer and kids are starting to run out of things to do! Send them into the backyard to practice for basketball tryouts on your Sport Court.

Over the next few months Sport Court will be providing basketball drills perfect for the backyard. Kids can use these drills to improve their ball handling, shooting, defense and offense. Make sure to tune in every week for a new drill! 

Double Ball Handling Drill Dribbling

This week, we'll be working on ball handling with Coach Byron Wilson. In the video below, Coach Wilson will demonstrate a simple dribbling drill intended to teach control and help players learn to dribble with both hands. 

To run this drill you will need two basketballs, three cones (or other obstacles) and backyard practice space.
