Side to side hops over a basketball are an essential drill for basketball players. They help improve coordination, balance, and quick decision making when playing basketball. This drill develops dribbling skills by allowing players to practice their decision and thought process while jumping over a small object. To properly do this drill, athletes need to hop side to side with both feet over a gym bag, cone, or ball. With consistent effort and dedication over time, 2 feet hops over short objects can become muscle memory and basketball players will be well prepared for the basketball court!
