Leg Wrap

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.  On the first whistle, players will focus on wrapping the ball around their right leg.  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 move to the left leg.  The final position will be wrapping the ball around both legs.  For this, players will bring both feet together while keeping knees bent.       

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.
