The basic fundamental for the crossover dribbling is the two-step series. There are three variations of the series.
The first variation is the step-forward, step-back series: From the right stationary position, step-forward with your strong foot, then step-back with your off-foot.
The second variation is the step-back, step-forward series: From the left stationary position, step-back with your off-foot, then step-forward with the strong foot.
The third variation is the step-back with a turn, step-forward series: From the right stationary side position, step-back with the strong foot (90-degrees in a clockwise direction). Step forward with your off-foot.
Remember that all the crossover dribbling techniques use one variation of the two-step series.
