Players work on maintaining a good dribble while they change pace and direction.
- Using 9 cones, mark off a four grid pattern
- Each grid is 15 yards long by 10 yards wide.
How it Works
- One player goes into each grid.
- Coach blows whistle.
- Players dribble keeping the ball under control in the tight space.
- At the coach’s direction, dribblers change direction, turn, accelerate or perform a move.
- Simple moves like pull-backs and L moves are good for tight space movement.
- Make sure players are using their weak foot as well as their strong foot as they dribble.
- Players should be mixing their pace – going slow and smooth and then exploding into a fast movement. Being able to change pace will help keep the defense off balance in a game.
