  Dealing with dribbling and handling the ball part 3

By Dejan Rodic http://www.dejanrodic.com

We are still dealing with the ball management which can naturaly lead to a better ball dribbling. As you can see in picture 1 we are still using the glasses which lower our peripheral eyesight. I have to say the girls made fun of them when they saw them in my hands.


Despite of some comments they trained as I expected from them. Naturally, they thought I have ended with the novelties after this practice, but I surprised them again on the next practice. There was some complaining but we still did some more difficult dribbling, such as dribbling close to the body and front exchange. I tried them myself.

As you can see in pictures 2 and 3, the glasses are plastic and extremely light. You have to focus on the exercise entirely. As you will be able to see in the videos the girls executed their exercise quite successfully and actually did not feel burdened by the glasses anymore. The same thing as often before has occurred – they did not want to easily accept something new. I would like to appeal to all my colleagues to spice up their practices with such a novelty; it does not require a change of the practice. 


As it can be seen in the videos, we were dealing with the ball handling in the combinaton of dribbling. Especially interesting are the videos where the player switches from sitting down to lying down while dribbling. In the next publication we will present such and similar exercise (with the glasses), but with a demonstrator, who will personally present his feelings about our prop.
