Sprint Dribble

Field size: 20 yards by 20 yards

Number of players: full team

Age range: 8-10

Description: Players dribbling in a small square and the coach calls out sprint. The players then dribble the ball out of the square as fast as they can. The coach then says sprint again and the players dribble back in the square.

Players should work on finding the open space and not running into their teammates or hitting another players ball.  Have players focus on keep their eyes on the ball but also knowing where other players are around them.

This is a good drill for players to work on their change of pace, going slow on the dribble and then fast.  Players jog and walk with the ball in the square and then burst out of the square on the dribble. 

Next, have players dribble with their weaker foot. Players should always keep the ball close to them - touching the ball with every step of the ball, even when they are sprinting with the ball.

Sure, there are times when you want to push the ball ahead four or five yards, but you want players to be as fast with the ball as without, so it's better to touch the ball with every step when dribbling at speed.

Equipment needed: Cones and practice vests.
