Walking Double Crossover Dribbling Drill

Drill Name: Walking Double Crossover Dribbling Drill
Similar Drills: Walking Between the Legs Crossover Dribbling Drill
Drill Goal: Work on selling the between the legs behind the back move and really changing up speeds.
Equipment Needed: 1 basketball.
Tips: Stay low in a low athletic stance the whole time. Don’t be a robot with your movements, really look to pause, sell your move, and change up speeds as you go through the drill. Keep your eyes up as you do the drill and also use your eyes to sell the move.
Directions: The player is going to start on the baseline with a basketball. The player will take a stationary dribble (the only one during the drill), pause, and then make an explosive double crossover combo move leading themselves forward with the move. Without taking any stationary dribbles in between, the player is going to pause again and then execute the same move. Continue this pattern all the way to the free throw line and then retreat dribble back to the baseline. Repeat the same action, but this time starting with your other hand.
