For basketball players looking to improve their speed and agility, 20 yard accelerations can be a great drill. Starting at one of the two cones placed 20 yards away from each other, basketball players should begin by leaning forward (almost falling forward before their first step) before exploding on towards the opposite cone at maximum speed. During this drill basketball players should focus on maintaining tight dribbling technique and body control so that they can build not only top speed acceleration, but also effective dribbling skills.
