The stick handling can be practiced and taught, unfortunately if it's about creativity and flair and pulling off unexpected dekes, some of that is all natural. Some guys have it and some just don't. But basics of catching, shielding and moving can be practiced. A lot is confidence too, of you think you will fumble and over think it, chances are you will lose it too.

A good way to improve confidence is find a lower level league and do moves you wouldn't do otherwise to gain confidence and have the experience of trying moves. Then when it is sufficient you can bring it up to the normal level you play at, but don't be afraid of trying it all out at a lower level.
