This fun youth basketball drill is called “Philosopher’s Walk” and is a fun way for basketball beginners to share what they know or have learned and also to build rapport with one another.
Rapport is an important part of the team building process and one often neglected by many coaches when planning their sessions.
You can modify the game as you see fit for the level of athlete you are working with by changing the rules of which hand you compete with.
It is a really good basketball activity to add to the end of you practise for all ages.
We are often adding NEW content so be sure to SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube Channel for more basketball basics and fun basketball practice games for kids.
