The Foundations of Ball Handling Instruction
In today’s game, there are countless ball handling methods and many disagreements throughout the basketball community regarding which ones are effective and which ones are not. However, rather than look at each method and judge which is best, I’m Possible Training believes that ball handling concepts and methods fall into five different categories that all provide value in their own way and their own realm. The truth is there is no one way to work on a player’s ball handling ability. That’s why I'm Possible Training has broken ball handling into five progressive levels of development.
- Coordination and Rhythm.
- Physical Traits.
- Game Simulation
When a player properly understands the balance between these levels and the importance and role of each, true ball handling mastery can be attained.
