This dibbling drill focuses on awareness while dribbling. The objective is to touch as many cones as possible while dribbling in one minute by keeping your head up and knowing where the cones are, while also being aware of the other classmates that are dribbling at the same time. All of the students are to line up on the base line, or if there is not enought room you can use both base lines or the sideline, and on the whistle they dribble around the court and touch as many cones as possible.
progressions- you can start with just the basic dribble and go. Then you can have them touch each cone with a different hand, for example touch with the right and then the left and then the right, so that they are forced to dribble with both hands. You can also say that they can't touch a cone more than once so then they are forced to travel further while dribbling and can't just go back and forth between two cones.
Incentives-Set a goal before each round so that the students have something to work toward and a goal amount. Or you can reward the students that get the most cone touches within the time.
double dribble- At the end of the time have all student hold the ball and remain in an athletic position guarding the ball, pivot and find a clssmate to pass the ball to. This will help them learn the double dribble rule and never driblle the ball once they have stopped.
Set players up as shown in diagram. One player on each side will dribble/run to half court. Once they get to half court, the players will turn and face the basket. The player with the ball will pass across to the other player. That player will then pass back to the original ball handler. Where that player will dribble to the basket and shoot a lay-up.
Players dribble around the outside of the cones (in the same direction). On the whistle all players have to change direction
Setup as shown in the diagram. Players have to dribble through the slalom, on reaching the end of the slalom the player then shoots.
Place basketballs 3m from players Player starts on their back and on the signal gets up, picks up the ball and starts to dribble around the cone and back again. When the ball is placed down on the floor the next person can go.
Can be done anywhere. Stand on the spot and dribble the ball a variety of ways and facing different directions.
Dribble 2 basketballs on the move. When players reach a cone the ball on their outside goes behind their back and the other ball crosses over in front. Players then continue running to the next cone and repeating.
First player dribbles full court with a defender covering all the time. Upon reaching the opposite baseline player dribbling becomes the defender and the other player dribbles the length of the court.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
