Crossover Dribble Jumpshot With Agility Hurdle (Video)

Written by

Using agility hurdles is a great way to improve your ball handling. A crossover dribble is great for creating space for your jump shot. Dribbling under an agility hurdle allows the shooter to get lower, quicker and become a better ball handler.


Drive the ball hard to get your defender to move backward. Make a quick crossover dribble, under an agility hurdle, set at 12 inches. Get back to your shooting foot for your shot.

Ball must be dribbled hard, low and under the hurdle builds good ball habits. Getting low to recover the dribble allows the shooter to quickly and strongly get into his shot.
