Basketball Systems, Skills & Drills

Speed dribble chase

Kathy Delaney-Smith
WBCA Offensive Drills

Work in pairs, the dribbler starts two steps in front of the defender, speed dribbles fullcourt and can't switch the dribbling hand, the defender tries to beat the dribbler to the other baseline or flick the ball from behind (back tip). Switch roles at the other end. Coach can adjust the dribbler's lead.


- allow the dribbler to crossover and cut off the defender
- don't allow back-tipping, it's a race.
