Basketball Agility Drill – ‘Suicide Dribbling’

In this video OzSwoosh Academy Athletes demonstrate another basketball agility drill. We consider this a “Super drill” to help athletes work on getting low on the drive and basic crossover moves.


Using the lines of the half court athletes complete dribble to each and return to the baseline while keeping their dribble alive.

This is a basic dribbling drill warm up Coach Craig Rowe shares with coaches who undertake their club coach accreditation under his guidance.
