Vogelsinger Warm Up Dribbling Drill
Activity (warm-up) Ages 8-15 Nutmeg Competition
Mark off a rectangular area and have the team find a buddy. One buddy from each pairs stands with the legs about two feet apart spread out in the area. The other partner needs to have a ball. The players should start to dribble around and on the coaches signal they have to dribble/pass through as many “gates” as possible. Play for 30 seconds and then switch roles.
Progressions: Specify how the players must dribble.
Coaching points: Can the players keep their head up to see an open gate?
