Around the World

Around the World is a dribbling challenge perfect for warm-ups. It is simple and easy to customize. The goal is to be able to dribble a complete circle around an object. Youngest players can dribble using 'bounce, catch' with their hands and a ball, no racquets needed. Dribbling can be done as 'downs', 'ups', 'self-rally', or some combination.

Variations

  • Have a single object such as a cone or spot. All players take turn dribbling around that item.
  • Have multiple objects; each player moves from item to item, dribbling around each in a complete circle. 
  • Divide group into teams. Each player dribbles around item relay-style. First team to finish, wins.
