Default Improving My Game.

I got cut from my Freshman team and i just wanna work on my game so much. My coach said i was right there, but the guards who made it were one step ahead. They had better ball handling, better shooting and were taller/bigger. He said I needed to improve my game by getting better at shooting and especially ball handling. So my question is what are some good ways to get better at shooting and especially ball handling. I cannot dribble with my left hand at all. I can barely make a layup with my left hand. I need some big improvement.

Thanks

PRACTICE. That's all you need to do if your problem is using your off hand. When I played I used to run whole practices off hand sometimes to work on it's co ordination. Carry a ball around through out the day and just dribble with your offhand, while sitting on the couch watching t.v whatever. It all adds up to your co ordination with that hand.

This is my routine to start.

Shoot 100 FT's
Form Shooting
3pt Shooting - Start in corner shoot 3, run, grab the reb before it touches floor and sprint to other corner.
Shoot 100 FTs
100 Shots - 25 3pts, 25 set jumpers, 25 pull up and 25 layups.
Shoot 10 3s from each spot (left corner, left wing, middle, right wing, right corner).

What you think? should i add or disregard anything?

If you're serious about getting better, you need to do some weight training as well. How much do you bench and squat? Can you touch the rim yet?

Being the most athletic guy on the court will make up for most skill defeciencies you have. Also, you need to play 5 v 5 games as frequently as possible (5x a week maybe) to keep your basketball IQ sharp.


And you should be taking at least 300 shots a day. Make sure to elevate and follow through. Work on your handles as your dribbling to your spot if you're getting your own rebound.

Few dribbling tips/moves:

Dribble low, squating, not bending your back.
Use your eyes to sell everything.

Master these moves (right to left and left to right):

Between the legs crossover
Front crossover
In and out
In and out cross
Wide cross
Hesitation (make sure to use your eyes and keep that head up)

And for passing, make sure to practice faking that chest/overhead pass, then following with a solid bounce pass.
