Name of Game: Ball Retrive


The coach kneels in the middle of the training area with the players around

him in a circle, with their ball in their hands. The coach takes one ball at a time and throws it

away. The players must retrieve the ball and bring it back to the coach as quickly as possible.

The coach then adds various conditions on how the players can return the ball e.g. balanced

in one hand, with right or left hand, rolling the ball along the ground, ball between the knees,

bouncing the ball, dribbling etc.


The coach can move.
