Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

McCormick partners

Brian McCormick

Players are paired up, each with a ball.

a) Knee tag

Partners dribble and try to tag each other in the knee with the other hand. Progression - once one player has been tagged, both players put their ball overhead, look around, go find new partners.

b) Mirror drill

One player is the leader, partner mirrors every dribble move. Option - stationary to start, facing each other.

(Variation - all players mirror coach)

See Dribbling - Partner, Wave.
