1 v 1 Dual (15 mins)

-The coach alternates serving the ball to player A and B.  In the example above the coach serves to Player B; Player B attempts to dribble over Player A's endline. Player A attempts to dispossess Player B and dribble over his endline.   So in essence the player defends their respective end-line and attacks the opponent's end-line.

-Max 12 seconds and play is dead

-Keep score..1 point to the team when a player dribbles over the opponents end-line...

Coaching points

-Change of direction- Use a Coerver manipulation to beat/unbalance defender
