Dribbling Warm up

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 move - if the move is a possession move (such as pull-back), player returns to original starting point (A). If the move is a penetration move (such as scissors), player dribbles to opposite vonce 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.

- Players should alwasy keep back tight and under control.

Dribble Wars

Organization of Session

- Set up two small goals 10-15 yards apart (farther apart is harder)

- Organize players into two even groups and assign each player a number (each player should have a mirror number on the other team)

- Coach puts ball into play and calls out a number, the players with that number sprint out to ball and attempt to dribble through either goal to score. Must dribble through.

Key Points

- Players should look to turn away from defender (using a dribble move such as pull-back, step-over, chop) an attack open goal

- Progression I - get two 1v1 battles going at same time in same space

- Progression II - call two/three groups at same time and go 2v2 or 3v3.

Coaching Points

- Change of direction

- Deception

- Change of pace

Additional Layers -

- Coach puts second ball into play, forcing players to navigate through with additional chaos

- Coach puts one ball into play and calls out two numbers for 2v2 match-up.
