Can you spell the ABC backwards while dribbling?
If you want to exercise your thinking while you execute other basketball tasks, try the following while you dribble a ball:
1. Spell the ABCD…Z. That's going to be easy. Don't stop the dribble.
2. Spell the ABC backwards ZYXW…A. Beware: it won't be that easy.
3. When you have this mastered, spell your name, phone no. etc., everything backwards.
Dribbling is easy for you as is following directions from your coach. But following instructions from the bench while dribbling can be confusing. Try these drills to improve.
