If you really want to improve your ball handling, and you have some extra money lying around, ball handling camps may be appropriate for you. There are many different basketball camps around the world. You can attend a basketball camp with n.b.a. professionals or with knowledgeable coaches and trainers that study ball handling. This is a great alternative to dribbling the basketball endlessly in your driveway without any form of guidance. Here are some of the pros and cons.Lets start with the pros. Basketball camps are usually for the youth ranging from 5 to 18 but there are adult ball handling camps available. Adults and children that are out of shape, or challenged athletically, will certainly get their money’s worth because they’re bound to leave the camp with new found skills and more confidence. If you truly love the game of basketball and you’re honestly willing to work hard to improve your dribbling skills, then you can benefit tremendously from a basketball camp. If you love meeting and working with new people this may also add to your experience with a basketball camp.Some popular camps that come to mind are Hoopzone Ball Handling Camps, Advantage Basketball Camps, and the Nike Basketball Camps. There are different levels of these camps. For example they may have a separate camp for middle school, high school, and college basketball students. These camps will help teach the importance self-discipline and self-confidence. You can usually register for these camps online and you can choose the perfect basketball camp for you or your child.Here are the cons. Now if you’re like me, and you don’t have the time to go to a basketball camp or you rather work on your handles at home with your own schedule, then there are other options to choose from. Basketball camps can be expensive, non-refundable, difficult to find, and sometimes they don’t live up to what you expect. If money isn’t an issue, you can hire a professional or someone with great knowledge of ball handling that you want to learn from. Hiring a professional trainer can be very expensive but if you have the money it may be a good option. You may be able to find someone locally but sometimes you may not, but a good place to search would be online.Here is the option I personally chose. I simply decided to work on my handles by myself. Three to five days a week I would go in my garage and dribble the paint off my basketball until I was exhausted, but I never seemed to get the results I wanted. One day I found a ball handling program online that came with complete step by step system that was created to transform anyone into a ball handling wizard. Once I found this program I knew I was destined for success because I knew exactly what to do to improve handles. I followed this program for a few weeks and I quickly became excellent at handling the basketball. I’m fortunate I was able to find this program before I decided to spend hundreds or thousands on a trainer or a basketball camp.
