In Dribble, Drive Change, we work on driving the the ball, change of direction and creating space for your shot. In this example, we are working both sides of the floor at the same time.


We start with chairs on each wing an a ball on each chair.

There are cones set up inside each chair and a second set up the sideline toward the baseline

Shooter start on the baseline.

 He drives the ball hard at the first cone.

In the first progression, when he reaches the cone, he makes a change dribble (crossover, through legs, etc) toward the 2nd cone.

He steps below the second cone for a shot.
