Developing Good Hands 

30 Sec. Workout Drill: Rapid Fire Drop Pass, Pivot and Pass
By Hal Wissel

For this drill, you will pass to a wall from a distance of only 5 feet. This drill is excellent for developing good hands and the ability to react to and catch quick passes.The drill also helps you develop quickness, accuracy, and confidence in your passing using the one-hand drop pass (with your strong or weak hand). Start in a balanced stance 5 feet from a wall with your back to the wall (use a toss back if a wall is not available). Start with the ball in both hands at your right side at hip level. Your right hand should face the wall, and your non-passing hand should be used to balance the ball. Make a drop pass to the wall with your right hand. Pass the ball with as much force and accuracy as you can. Perform a front pivot on your right foot to your right side and react quickly to catch the ball with two hands as it quickly returns off the wall. Now perform a reverse pivot on the same foot so your back is again toward the wall. Next, make a drop pass to the wall with your left hand, passing the ball with as much force and accuracy as you can. Perform a front pivot on your left foot to your left side and react quickly to catch the ball with two hands as it quickly returns off the wall. Perform a reverse pivot on the same foot so your back is again toward the wall. Continue performing the drill, alternating right and left-handed drop passes. Count the number of drop passes made in 30 seconds. A good score is 20 passes in 30 seconds.
