Kids in a square, trying to steal each others basketballs.
Put 4 tubs (or small baskets) in a square. Tubs at the corners. Put two balls in each tub and have a player stand at each tub. Put cones on the outsides of the tubs about 10 feet away, in the middle of each tub to make a bigger square that's at a 45 degree tilt from the tub square. When coach says go, the players have to go to another player's tub and take a ball and then dribble it on the outside of the cones square until they can get to their tub. If they go to their direct neighbor's tub, they just have one cone to dribble around, the diagnol player would be two cones.
The object is to collect as many balls as possible.
Go for about a minute or minute and a half.
Winner has the most balls and stays in while the players on the sideline jump in.
Make sure they are dribbling with the outside hand as they dribble around the cones. Keeping them selves inbetween the cone and the ball.
For the second variation with the defensive players, make sure dribblers stay close and not dribble so far out.
Loose the bigger cone sqaure for younger players so they don't have to dribble to the outside after they steal the ball.
For older kids, put defensive players at the cones and have them restricted to staying at the cones but as players dribble by, they can try to knock the ball away.
Quickness, dribbling and conditioning.
