Dribbling Warm up (15 mins)

Organization of Session

- Three cones are set up in a line with 10-12 yards beteen each cone

- 2-3 players (each with a ball) at each outside cone

- Players dribble to cone and throw a possession move (such as step over, pull back, chop), player dribbles back to starting cone after throwing the move (B).

Coaching Points

- Executing the move properly is more important than going fast. Make sure players use proper technique for each move - slow them down if needed.

- Be specific as to which foot the players uses to execute the move. Get reps with both feet.

- Recommend that no more than 2-3 moves be taught in a single session.

- Players should "explode out" of the move, dribbling as fast as possible(using outside of foot)

- Players should alwasy keep ball tight and under control.

Dueling 1v1 (15 mins)

Organization of Session

- 15 x15 grid

- place a small goal/gate in each corner

- divide players into four groups, one per corner

Key Points

- Defending player (1) passess forwardto attacking player (2). Attacking player receives ball on dribble and attemps to score by DRIBBLING THROUGH one of the two goals on opposite site. If 2 wins the ball, then game is over and next defender in line passes the ball to next attacker and sequence is repeated.

- At the same time players 1 & 2 are going, players A & B also go so there are two 1v1 battles in the same space.

- Defender must have 2 touches or play the ball out of bounds to "win" it.

- Defenders cannot score.

- Timed game, play 5 minutes and then switch attacking/defender players.

Coaching Points

- Dribble at an angle (not straight at defender).

- Use turns to change direction and beat defender

- Dribbler should change speed/direction when throwing a move.
