Two Lines

Purpose

Improve  the  ability  to  dribble  to  beat  an  opponent,  and  maintain  overall  ball control.

Organization

Create  two  lines,  with  three  to  six  players  in  each  line.  Lines  are  15  to  20  yards apart,  with  one  flag  or  cone  in  the  middle.  For  more  repetitions,  have  several groups working at the same time.

Procedure

The  first  player  from  each  line  dribbles  slowly  toward  the  flag,  then  changes pace and accelerates to the opposite line.

Key Points

• Keep  the  ball  close  when  dribbling  slowly;  then  take  a  big  touch  to  accelerate.
• Use  the  outside  of  the  foot  when  preparing  the  ball  for  the  bigger,  accelerating touch.
• Keep the ball on the outside of your body when dribbling. Alternate feet.

Variations

1.  Players switch the ball in the middle, then accelerate.
2.    Inside-outside  fake:  Players  slowly  drag  the  ball  across  the  body  with  the inside  of  the  foot  to  unbalance  their  opponents,  then  quickly  accelerate with an outside-of-the-foot touch to go past the opponent.
3.    Double  fake:  Players  slowly  drag  the  ball  across  the  body  with  the  inside of  the  right  foot,  then,  rather  than  taking  the  ball  with  the  outside  of  the right  foot,  they  step  past  the  ball  with  the  right  foot  and  take  it  away  with the outside of the left foot.
4.    Inside-out  step-over:  Players  bring  the  right  foot  around  the  back  and inside  of  the  ball,  then  take  the  ball  away  to  the  left,  using  the  outside  of the left foot.
5.    Double  step-over:  Players  bring  the  right  foot  around  the  back  and  inside of  the  ball,  then,  rather  than  taking  it  away  with  the  outside  of  the  left foot,  they  step  over  the  back  and  inside  of  the  ball  with  the  left  foot  and take it away to the right with the outside of the right foot.
6.    Outside-in  step-over:  With  the  right  foot,  players  step  around  the  outside and  front  of  the  ball,  with  the  right  foot  landing  on  the  inside  of  the  ball. Then they take the ball away with the outside of the right foot.
7.    Ronaldo  rake:  With  the  inside  of  the  right  foot,  players  rake  (roll)  the  ball across  the  body,  step  over  the  outside  and  front  of  the  ball  with  the  left foot, and then take ball away to the left with the outside of the left foot.
