How it Works

  1. Standing feet shoulder width apart, begin by dribbling 5 times, low and compact with your left hand, down by your left foot.
  2. Raise your dribble, now dribbling 5 times by your left hip.
  3. Raise your dribble again, and dribble 5 times up by your left ear.
  4. Repeat the pattern, going back down to your hips for 5 dribbles, then down to your feet for 5 dribbles again.
  5. Switch hands and repeat.

Coaching Tips

  • Alter speed from fast to slow.
  • For a more difficult version, do the same exercise with two balls at the same time.
