Every week here on the Locker Room, we will present a new basketball drill that can be used to teach multiple skills and improve your game, all while adding some fresh spice to your repertoire.
This week’s drill is called the “Scissors Dribble Shooting Progression”. The Scissors Dribble Shooting Progression emphasizes developing ball control, shooting footwork, pullup jumpshot mechanics and reading the defense. This drill is a progression, building up from the basic youth basketball ball handling drill, Stationary Scissors Dribble, to an advanced read and react situation. The drill can be done with 1 player and 1 coach or a pair of players/teammates.
