This intermediate drill to practice the dribble technique challenges the players to change direction on a signal 


  • Mark out a distance 10m wide using cones
  • The players line up on one side, one sliotar per player
  • Each player dribbles towards the far cones
  • On the Coach's signal, each player quickly changes direction and dribbles back in the direction they came from
  • The Coach should vary the point at which they signal to ensure the players remain alert

STEP Variation

Equipment - To increase the challenge: Use a smaller sliotar such as the Quick Touch sliotar
