Dribble Exercise

rob the nest

Place 5 squares in the grid.  One in each corner and one in the middle.  

Divide the group into each of the four corners.  

Put all of the balls, as many as you have, in the middle square.  

When the coach says “GO”, one player from each square goes to the middle and takes one ball back to their corner, tags their teammate and the next player goes to the middle.  

The winning team is the one that has the most amount of balls in their corner when there are no remaining balls in the middle.  

Variation:  

When no balls are left give an additional 60 seconds for players to follow the same rules but remove the balls from their opponents squares.  Corners cannot be protected.

Dribbling Exercise

steal the treasure

Make a 20x30 yard gird divided into two halves with an equal number of cones on each side of the grid.  Place 1 team in each half.  On the coach’s command the players will dribble to the opponents half and touch a cone with the ball, pick up the cone and take it to their half.  The team with the most cones in 3 minutes wins the round.  

Variation:

players can defend their treasure by tagging the opponent with a cone before he/she crosses the half.  The player drops the cone at the place they were tagged.
