Work on your ball handling skills. Even if you aren’t typically a ball handler, when you do have the ball, you’ll want to know what to do with it. There are a number of dribbling practices and drills you can do on your own to improve your ball handling skills during a game. Work on using both your dominant and non-dominant hand in order to catch opponents by surprise.
Shoot the ball every day. Basketball players competing on a high level make sure they take hundreds of shots on a daily basis so that they’re comfortable during the game. However, you want to take realistic shots based on the position you play, otherwise the exercise won’t be worth it. It’s fun to take shots from far away, but if you play close up it won’t do much good.
Work on your follow through. This means that when you shoot the ball or even pass it to another teammate, you want to make sure that you follow through with your motion to ensure the ball’s path is smooth and accurate. Throwing the ball up with little regard to form will greatly decrease accuracy.
