Instructions:

"Cops and Robbers"

Each players needs a bib tucked in the side of their shorts. Players with a bib are the robbers. The cop who is not wearing the bib is released when the robbers are "in the run."

Coaching Points:

-Head up to observe where the cops are

-Turning away from pressure(the cops) and into open space

-Using your body to protect the ball.

- Spatial Awareness

Progressions:

The Cops and Robbers now have to dribble their ball "their vehicle" make sure the players "REV" up their engines and keep the ball close. They can't move without their ball.

The Cop can't catch a Robber without his ball because how will he bring the Robbers back to the station. Keep the ball close.

The Robbers can also try to kick the ball from the Cop if they have an opportunity to earn some more time because the Cop can't catch the Robber without his ball.
