High CI - dribbling (20 mins)


16 players with a ball each

A square marked out about 15 x 15 metres


4 players line up on each line of a square. They have a ball each.

The objective is to dribble across to the opposite side of the square, without losing control of your ball or bumping into another player.

The small size of the area and number of players dribbling in various directions all add up to a massive amount of contextual interference, therefore, presenting numerous decisions for a player to make.

Key learning and coaching points:

Players quickly have to assess what is coming towards them from three directions (left, right and toward them).

Close control and keeping their head up at all times is essental.

Players quickly learn to assess the situaton, and stop/start; dribble from danger; change direction, etc


Time restrictions to get across to the other side

Reduce the size of the square

Put players that have lost control of their ball or additional players within the square to dribble freely, therefore adding more CI to the situation.
