Traffic Lights

Simple dribbling drill that can be advanced and manipulated for all ages and ability, great warm up or basic drill

Players move around island, staying away form the edge of the sea and keep moving but avoiding bumping into others (head up and close control, lots of little touches for control, big touches for speed)

Incorporate zoo animals for th basic A, B, C 's (speed, direction)

On coaches command, shouts out a colour of a traffic light - red = stop, green = go, orange = turn.

Repeat now using coloured cones so they have to look up to see the cone action.

Using the following...

P1 - one foot only, inside/outsdie (big toe, little toe)

P2 - both feet (inside, inside, big toe, big toe)

P3 - turns (inside, outside cuts, drag back, 360, etc etc)
