King of the Court
This is a great basketball drill for younger players that teaches them to keep their heads up and look around the court while dribbling. To execute, have players spread across half of the court and try to knock the basketball away from other players. When a player loses control of the basketball, he or she is eliminated from the game. Also eliminate players who double dribble or travel to stop bad-habits. As a coach, it is smart to allow some bumping during this drill to condition players for game-like situations when a foul may not be called.
