A fun way to practice basketball dribbling skills with young learners. This game is played like musical chairs. Spread out hula hoops, polyspots, or cones all around the gym. Then give each player a ball to practice dribbling. When the music plays, they practice their dribbling. When the music stops, they have to find a marker. Of course, there are fewer markers than there are dribblers, so some players will be eliminated. But make sure that those who have been eliminated are still practicing their dribbling skills. This game sounds like a lot of fun. Try it out!
Students identify physical education by participating in a sports activity. For this dribbling lesson, students discuss how basketball players move the ball without holding it and define the action as dribbling. Students participate in a dribbling exercise on the playground and practice moving the ball without holding it.
The most important skill in soccer is dribbling. Most can do a decent job of kicking the ball around, but it takes a lot of practice to get good and make the ball do exactly what you want it to do. So this lesson on dribbling is just one out of twenty lessons in this soccer unit. There are links to the other lessons and to the unit plan page.
This is a basic lesson on dribbling a basketball. There are several cues and drills to practice dribbling. What I like about this lesson is the actual activity used to practice: capture the flag. The players have to dribble a basketball while playing this game. The game is challenging enough because part of the strategy is being quietly stealthy and sneaking in to capture the opponents flag. But now it seems that quietness will be an impossibility while dribbling a basketball. Hopefully you already know how to play capture the flag. Have fun!
