1. Dribbling one hand at a time: Begin by taking a basketball and encourage your child to dribble with their dominant (or favorite) hand. Have them count out loud and get to 3 successful bounces, then move up to 5. After they show they can control the ball and dribble 5 times, have them switch to their non-dominant hand and repeat the previous steps.

2. Shooting to a wall: Using a marker, such as a cone or chalk line, mark a spot about 3 feet away from a wall or small hoop. Have your child stand behind the marker and, using their dominant hand, shoot the ball up to the wall at an arc. Be sure to have them arc the ball so they don’t get confused between a shot and a pass.

3. Passing to a partner: Start by standing about 5 feet away from one another. If you do not have a partner, you can use a wall. Then, while taking a step forward and having both hands on the ball, push it towards your target and aim for the ground right in front of your partner! This is called a bounce pass.

4. Catching: Using a small ball, have your child throw the ball up in the air to themselves and catch it. This will teach them to always keep their eye on the ball and to be ready with their hands. After they’ve tried a few times, have them throw it up higher each time!

5. Follow the leader: This is a fun drill to teach your child that in basketball you are always moving! Have your child follow you while you run, skip, and walk. You can utilize cones or other markers to practice running in and around the cones quickly.
