2) Out - Players dribble as quickly as they can to the edge of the field

3) In - Players dribble as quickly as they can around the coach, keeping close control of the ball

Coaching Points:

-Head up to see available space

-Keep the ball close when in crowded areas (can you take a touch every step you take)

-If a player sees a good area of space, then they can take bigger touch/accelerate into it

-Use correct dribbling technique (pinky toe touches, knee over ball)

Progressions:

-If players lose the ball outside of the area, or hit another player/ball they lose 10 points in the race to 50.
