Chase the Dribbler

Field size: 30 yards by 20 yards

Number of players: 12 players total; players work in pairs

Age range: 6-8

Description: Players pair up and one player has a ball at their feet.  Players are numbered off from 1 through 6 – pairs will have the same number, one being the designated dribble and one the chaser. 

When their number is called out they race around the circle, the player with the ball dribbles and the other chases. Player dribbling tries to beat the player without the ball back to their original position while the defender tries to kick the ball away. Chaser has to count to three before they can give chase. 

The coach calls out another number after the player gets back in place or the defender wins the ball.  Switch the chasers and the dribblers roles after a few rounds.

If the chaser/defender catches up to the dribbler, they can still try to get past the chaser or shield the ball from them and get back into their position in the circle first. However, only give these players a short amount of time before calling the play dead and calling out a new number.

The focus for this drill is keeping the ball close to you, getting the head up, and dribbling around the circle without letting the ball get away.

Equipment needed: Cones and practice vests.
