  • You know, an important part of your game has got to be the ball handling. And, whenever

  • you're doing that ball handling you've got to do drills and practice in order to get

  • good at it. Hi, I'm Travis, and I'm going to show you just how to perfect and get better

  • at ball handling, in seven minutes a day. Number one, what I'm going to do is, I'm going

  • to split each one. I'm going to split seven drills and you dedicate one minute to each

  • one of those drills everyday, you're guaranteed to get better. Alright, the first ball handling

  • drill I want to show you is, once you have the ball, you want to take the ball, bring

  • it down below your ankles, start down below your ankles, and go around your ankle, waist,

  • head, waist, ankle, waist, head, waist, ankle, and you just go faster, and faster, kind of

  • like this. And, you might want to do that for, if you have a timer try that for thirty

  • seconds, and then after you get that for thirty seconds, have someone time you, and you do

  • the exact same thing, just the opposite direction, going this way. Next, after you do that for thirty seconds,

  • move onto the next drill. The next drill will be the tip, fingertip drill. What you want

  • to do is, you want to make sure you get a good feel for the ball, so you tip the ball,

  • back and forth, raise it up higher and higher. Try that for let's say thirty seconds. Then

  • take maybe a couple seconds rest and on top of that you might want to do the next, the

  • next rep might be a little shorter, because your arms will obviously be tired. So, try

  • that next rep, let's say you give yourself ten seconds rest, try that next rep for twenty

  • seconds. Do this for twenty seconds, give yourself, once you stop give yourself that

  • little rest, then move onto the next drill. Next drill will be for ball handling, another

  • important part of ball handling is dribbling. So, you might want to work on your crossover

  • dribble. So, just crossover, dribble back, forth, back, forth, back and forth and you

  • do that for around thirty seconds. Get faster and faster, and lower and lower. The lower

  • you get, the better you are at it. The better you are at it, the lower you get. Now, after

  • you do two reps of that for thirty seconds, you move onto the next one. The next one will

  • be the figure eight drill, which you go between your legs, figure eight, try that way and

  • then reverse it and go the other way, thirty seconds a piece. The next one will be probably

  • figure eight dribble, which take the ball, dribble between your legs in the same motion.

  • Try it one way, and then go back the other direction. So, you can come up with a couple

  • of other drills, for example: instead of the tap drill, squeezing it. Try that thirty seconds

  • one way, and thirty seconds again for the finish up rep. And, the last one you want

  • to do, is you want to try and just get one, one ball, maybe have a defensive man and work

  • on simply dribbling. Dribbling up and down the court. There you have it, seven minutes

  • ball handling.
