This drill looks easier in the animation than it really is. The markings should be close together, so that the dribbler has to “pull” the ball around the obstacles. A fast pace combined with a great deal of skill and then one more thing enters the mix: the shot on goal. That makes for tight, close dribbling; then look to finish the sequence quickly.
We have shown the sequence from both sides. The dribblers move to the other side directly after their turn; this ensures they can use both legs. Test the distance of the markers and adjust it depending on your player’s skill level.
