Squares

4 yard x 4 yard squares

1 player, 1 ball per square

* Limited amount of space should make players focus on keeping close control of the ball

* Upon command of "switch" from coach, players leave their ball and quickly move to a different square

* Can emphasize turns by having players dribble toward a cone before turning and dribbling back to center of square

* To keep things interesting, call out a number 1 to 4 - players must dribble around that many cones before returning to the center of their square

Diamond

Large diamond with smaller diamond set up in center

Players start on outside of large diamond (each with a ball)

* All 4 lines play at the same time

* First player in each line dribbles toward center cone (8-12 yards away) before performing a move and then accelerating 90 degrees to the right to join back of line

* Work for 45 seconds then change direction (counter clockwise)

* Set works great when talking about dribbling to escape pressure and keep possession

4 groups of players, each with a ball, start 8 to 12 yards away from central flag

With passing

Groups of 3 in a line, 8 to 12 yards away from each other

2 players on the outside start with a ball

* Player on the outside passes the ball to central player then runs forward to become a passive defender

* Central player now in possession does a move around passive defender before accelerating to the outside

* Play continues in the opposite direction

* This set up works well after players are familiar and comfortable with basic moves

* Can also be used before a defending session by talking about closing space quickly and angle of approach / body shape of passive defender after each pass
