Considering that we
have reached the end of the season we wrote in our previous column that
it is the right time for shot correction and getting rid of dribbling
mistakes. Today we are going to show one of the methods where we can
achieve our goal with the help of the additional props.
In pictures 1 and 2 we can see a special glasses which enables us to
teach the players at dribbling of better ball management. This glasses
lower the peripheral eyesight and, as many coaches wish, the player is
looking straight toward his or her goal.
Without this glasses the players often look down and in this way cheat.
With this glasses the player does not see anything and he is forced to
try to literaly feel the ball. During the matches these types of
situations are unnoticeable because we are not dealing with this
phenomenon. But nevertheless, it often happens that we are hindered
during the dribbling and this glasses enables the simulation of this.
In pictures 3 and 4 we can see from the close up that the glasses do
not have any glass; they are plastic and entirely harmless and do not
threaten the player´s health. As you can see in the video we have to
demand the look forward (toward the basket); with various exercise the
improvement of dribbling can begin.
Today we are presenting dribbling the ball close to the body with the
left and the right hand, dribbling the ball forward and backward close
to the body and dribbling the ball with the left and the right hand in
front of the body. In the next publication we are going to show some
more demanding exercise with our props.
