This Fun basketball drill for kids is called the pivot reaction drill which helps players improve their basketball footwork fundamentals.
Learning to pivot properly is one of the most fundamental basketball footwork priorities for young athletes.
At Ozswoosh we often say, ‘where your feet go, you go’, so having great fundamental footwork in basketball is extremely important at all levels of basketball.
This basketball pivot drill helps improve athlete’s ability to reduce mental gaps when pivoting, the goal is to reduce the reaction time it takes to send the signal from the brain to the extremities.
