Steph Curry Driveway Ball-Handling

Written by Coach Peterman

I have coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. I just felt that fellow coaches especially young coaches need to constantly work on their “game”. Just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves. That is my story and why I do this blog.

Want to have handles like Steph Curry? You need to put in a lot of time and practice, but this ball-handling routine is a good start.  Here is the Steph Curry Driveway Ball-Handling that you can do. This is a great set of ball handling drills for your everyday practic. 

This is Steph Curry’s pregame ball-handling routine. He spends about ~10 seconds each exercise. So the whole routine takes less than 3 minutes! This is just daily rep work to get warmed up and keep his handle tight. 

Start with 2 basketballs… 

  • 2 Ball Low Pound 
  • 2 Ball Alt Pound 
  • 2 Ball 1 Bounce + Crossover (crossover both balls) 
  • 2 Ball 1 Bounce + Between Legs 

○ One ball crosses, the other goes between legs 

○ Switch direction each time- same ball is always going between legs 

  • 2 Ball Windshield Wipers (Front V- Same Direction) 
  • 2 Ball W (Front V- Inside the Out) 
  • 2 Ball Side V (Front-back) 
  • 2 Ball Side Alternating V (One ball going front and one back) 
  • 2 Ball Pound + Around Leg (one hand pound dribble, other wrap around leg w/1 bounce) 
  • 2 Ball Pound + Around Leg + Cross (behind back and front- switch hands) + Cross 

Move to 1 Ball + Coach/Partner (or wall)… 

  • Cross + Between Legs + Behind Back + 1 Handed Pass to Coach —> Coach passes back to opposite hand 
  • *Same as above but 2x…Cross-Cross + Between Legs-Between Legs (Front) + Behind Back-Behind Back + Pass 
  • *Same as above but 3x… 
  • *Same as above but 4x…
