Dribbling the ball, generally takes place in tight areas, where a player needs to take the ball out of one tight area to another area where there is more space.
Dribbling the ball is not necessarily taking as many touches as you can, it is taking as many as you need to and then being able to release the ball at the correct time. Once again involving the process of decision making.
It’s important to recognise that kids are taught to use skills when dribbling the ball.
What we teach the players:
Can they take soft touches, keep control of the ball.
Can they lift their eyes to see where the space is.
Can they use both feet.
Can they get the body into the best position to dribble the ball: soft knees, on their toes, low centre of gravity.
