A great point guard needs skills and confidence to successfully run his or her team. This means playing as many AAU, MAYB, Recreation League and high school summer league games as possible to gain experience. But it also means working in the gym to polish your abilities. Good basketball point guard drills start with ball handling and court vision work during the off-season.
This drill combines basic fundamentals with conditioning and game simulation. You need two or three players, a chair, two basketballs, four cones and a stopwatch.
1. Start with Player 1 sitting in chair at free throw line maintaining firm posture, simultaneously dribbling two basketballs.
2. Player 1 does four sets of 20 seconds:
3. Player 2 waits to sprint to half court. Once Player 1 is finished, he hands off to Player 2, who extends right and sprints back to score a layup
4. Player 3, ready at the other free throw line, sprints to half court and back to score a layup
*Use cones for passing lanes as players cut to the lane for a layup.
