Part 2 - Dribbling Basics


(during this whole section the speech will be accompanied by demonstrations)

Coach: "There are two distinct types of dribbling: dribbling for speed and dribbling for control. Dribbling for speed is used for moving fast if you're on a break-away or if there is an open space that you need to move the ball into. Dribbling for control is for moving in tight areas while protecting the ball from opponents."
