Body Wraps

Set Up: Players will need a basketball in hand for this individual drill.  Players without a basketball should line up behind those players with a basketball.  Coach should be in front monitoring this drill.

Movement: Players will begin in a good athletic stance with feet spread apart.  Players will focus on wrapping the ball around their waist from one hand to the next.  Start slowly and pick up the pace as they feel more comfortable.  Focus on a clean exchange from one hand to then next.  After 10-seconds, blow the whistle for players to change direction and rotate the ball the other way.        

Key Focus Point: This drill helps players develop a feel for the ball moving around their body.  Focus on good athletic stances and controlling the basketball.  Keep eyes up.
