Dribble with a ball 5 yards in a straight line (U7 activity)

BALL CONTROL 3

Dribble with a ball 5 yards in a straight line

DRIBBLE RELAYS

“Touch the ball three times to move forward” • “Keep the ball close in front of you”

Set up two cones 5 yards apart for each group. Put two players behind each cone. Each player has a ball.

This activity is run like a relay – when you say “go”, the first player dribbles the ball from one cone to the other. When he gets there, the next player dribbles back and the sequence continues like that.

Players should be taking at least three touches of the ball to control it and get it across to the opposite cone.

Make sure you encourage players with the Call Out phrases: “Touch the ball three times to move forward” “Keep the ball close in front of you”.

How many players do I need?

We used eight players for this continuous game, but you can adapt it for greater or fewer numbers.
