You exert a downward force onto the ball, and because it is rubber, it will bounce back up to you. Do this repetitively, and you will be dribbling a Basketball. (YOu know you are doing it correctly if the ball is going UP and DOWN!)
Because otherwise it would be traveling! Also, if you had to run with the ball without dribbling it would be the same thing as football really. Plus other people cannot steal the ball without tackling you for it.
It is just the rules. If you don't, you will get a foul and the other team will get the ball. This is called traveling.Traveling is when you run or walk with the ball, without dribbling. That is why its important to dribble. There is no reasoning for it, it's just the way the game is played.
Hope this helps!
In soccer dribbling is used to move the ball down the feild with you while keeping it in close range. You pass the ball from one foot to the other while running. When you get far enough down the feild, you either pass or shoot.
It is important to dribble in a game because 1 it gives you an option to get open for the ball and 2 so you can score. But you don't have to dribble. You can do a fast break and that is just passing and no dribbling. But that would be hard to do for a whole game.
you dribble with your hands by doing an up and down motion with the basketball in the same spot until you're ready to run and dribble
If you don't dribble the basketball, you can't move anywhere. If you move without dribbling the basketball, that is traveling.
Because, the refs will call traveling on you.( that's not dribbling the ball or taking more than 3 steps. ;)
When basketball was first created players were not allowed to dribble the ball.
It's when you bounce the ball.
so you can dribble the basketball
It means to dribble the ball and pick it up again and dribble it.
No, there is no rule that says you must dribble the basketball before you can shoot it. But you may not take any steps with out dribbling the ball, if you do "travel" with the ball without dribbling the referee will whistle a penalty.
Traveling: you cannot take over 2 steps with the basketball in your hands with out dribbling Double Dribble: After you get the ball and dribble, if you pick the ball up again you cant dribble
you do not have to pass the ball, but you do if you stop your dribble
Of course not! The only thing that will affect the dribble or shot projection of the ball is based on how well you are able to handle the ball.
When a basketball player runs with the ball with out dribbling, they are traveling which is against the rules.
you can only dribble 3 times in european hand ball and in Basketball you can have unlimited dribbling :)
two ball dribble.
