Are all your ballhandling workouts not showing up when it comes game time?

3I1A4180.jpg

Do you work relentlessly on your ballhandling each day but when it comes to game time it seems like it all falls apart? Many of us all over the world face the same issue. During our workouts it seems like the ball is a part of our hand, but once it comes game time, you can’t do half the stuff you do in your workouts. 

 

The reason this happens is because you haven’t been training in parallel with how motor learning and skill acquisition actually work. We’re sorry to get all “sciency” on you, but in order for a skill to transfer to the game, it just has to be done this way. “Repetition is the mother of all skill” may no longer hold true when it comes to developing elite handles that will take you to the next level.

Before we dive into more content about this program lets go over who this program is not for! If you think that endless combo moves that you have never once done in a game is the answer to all this, then please exit this page NOW! However, if you have taken time to self reflect on what is actually used in the game, and that its honestly not that complicated, then you have arrived at the right product.

The truth is that all the reps that you do against cones and chairs are NOT a total waste, it has developed a great base from where you can now start! But it may be time to dive into how to handle the ball better. Maybe its not a handle issue, maybe its a footwork issue. Maybe its not that don’t have enough moves, its that you don’t have context to HOW and WHEN to use those moves. 

 

As a coaching staff we wish we had this information at our disposal when we were younger, because it would definitely have changed how we thought of how we build our arsenal of what we need for the court.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I am a beginner how do I best utilize this program?

 

Depending on how much experience you have, the majority of your session might be spent on working on the stationary and progressive training, you want to make sure that you have a good feel for the ball. At the same time it is important to get some other player involved in order for you to feel some pressure. Dribbling on your own and against a defender at two very different things, its important to get both exposures.

 

 

I have done stationary ballhandling all my life, how can I get anything out of this program?

 

Your best bet is going to be more small sided games. While this is only Vol 1 you can definitely make these small sided games very challenging. Very often times the best stationary ball handlers are not the best in game ball handlers, this is because blocked training doesn’t require any action or reaction. I would say a good 15-20% of your time is spent on stationary ball handling or progressive moves, the other 80% needs to have a defender involved and needs to be competitive. The whole ballhandling workout for you might only last 20-25 mins. Quality over quantity.

 

 

I am a parent how do you think I can apply this to my child?

 

It really depends on how old your child is. If they are very young, I would actually start them with small sided games (SSG). SSGs are interactive, they are fun and they give external feedback that can be understood by players of all ages (Examples: I lost the ball, the ball went out of bounds) How many 8 year olds want to stand there and do 30 pounds on each side? :) Once they are old enough to focus then add in the structured ball handling!

 

 

What happens when I am done with this program?

 

You can never truly be done with this program, because even the best players in the world come back to the basics everyday. But check out our Volume 2 that will be coming out soon! Once you have a good grasp on what we go through here, you will be ready to take it to an even higher level.
