Summer Workout Ideas

School is out and the real season starts now - this is the time to develop your individual skills! In addition to camps and organized programs, players primarily need to invest in their own skill-building through individual workouts or finding time with a friend or sibling to work on ball handling and shooting. 

Below you will find a PDF with some recommended drills as well as a few links to helpful websites. However, you can find plenty of ideas online for drills that you find fun and helpful. The key: 

  • have a ball in your hand almost every day this summer
  • don't get frustrated if a drill isn't easy at first. Stick with it!
  • have fun! Partner with a friend or sibling. Keep track of workouts. Play music.
  • Most importantly, don't decide in January that you wish your ball-handling was better. Decide now. Do the work now!
