Hi. Ideas for dribbling drills?

Hi. Any ideas for dribbling drills that would be fun for 12-13 yr old boys to improve control and agility?

Hi Gertruida, (nice old Dutch name by the way, any Dutch blood?)

I sometimes use this drill: running for points. Set out 3 or 4 little squars with cones. The distance between the squares differs. Players with their ball are in the square. They have to run with ball to another square and get points for the distance. One or 2 players stay outside the squares. They have no ball but try to win the ball from the players running with the ball. If they succeed, they get 5 points.

There are many ways to do this drill:

  • smaller squares, more squares or less squares
  • more variation in distance
  • more players without baal
  • only one player allowed in 1 square, if a new player is coming, the old one has to move
  • using different dribbling techniques

Enjoy the drill.

Grtz,

Carel

Puntenloop


Description:

Zet een aantal 4kanten uit op onderling verschillende afstanden. Spelers staan met bal in ee vierkant. Er is 1 tikker zonder bal. Spelers drijven de bal van vierkant naar vierkant. Voor elke afgelegde oversteek krijgen ze punten. Wie de meeste punten heeft, wint.


Coaching Points:
  • drijven met de bal aan de stick, niet naar voren slaan en er achter aan rennen
  • voeg meer verdedigers toe als het met 1 te lang duurt
  • verdediger kan ook zonder stick en moet speler met bal tikken

Hi Carel,

Thanks for the drill, I like the idea of having one player in the square at one time. I'll try it next practice or something.

 (yeah some dutch there, actually South African)

 

Cheers
