imaginary butterfly dribbling

Post by rocket » 02 Aug 2011, 13:05

most in EF have pretty good dribbling skills i guess.....
to improve peripheral vision and also have good contol over the ball while driblling i have a new idea to progress.....

have u seen one of those harry potter movies in which he gets the fly kind of thing and wins the match for his team

so here it is ... u need a relatively large area or a lane where there is no interruption for u to dribble...after warming up ...

think of an imaginary butterfly u need to catch... its pretty fast accordin to ur mind... u have to catch hold of that fly to win the match. but the CONDITION is
u need to dribble with the ball and ball must be in ur control at all times and in the direction of the fly...if it moves right u need to move right and if it moves left u need to move left ... u get the point dont u but must also be as quick as the fly :twisted:

That's pretty much all I've ever done with regards to working on my dribbling, and it's now the most natural part of my game. I've only very recently started training with cones for dribbling and that is mainly the scattered cone drill (Which I picked up from your videos, Collin) and a drill whereas the cones are a good 3-4 yards apart and I have to run through them at full pelt.

IMO the video shows the most natural way to work on your dribbling, when I was young I developed my dribbling ability by just being outside and pretending I was playing for Man United, and I imagined match situations and would just be dribbling at random, everywhere.

exactly, sometimes i wish i never started dribbling through cones. The reason being is because instead of everything being super natural, every touch i take is almost routine-like. If you know what i mean, i feel like i would have more success if i never used the cones. But they still help of course.

I certainly wouldn't discourage you from using the cones, in my opinion the ratio they help at is like 20% dribbling and 80% close control, and a lot of the time when you are dribbling close control is vital.

I just think that as well as the cones it would be beneficial to use a routine like this as it allows for more natural movements. Dribbling really is quite a complicated system as there are times when you can be dribbling in close quarters (this is were cone work will come in handy) and other times you may be moving very quickly and changing direction suddenly, and this is where this type of dribbling will come in handy.

You can never practice too much for dribbling if you want to reach those high levels of excellence.

no buddy.... while practising i saw a a small butterfly...i was following it... that is how i pretty much got the idea... :D




@collin..
i used to practise even like that ... but not lately...
i used to imagine that i am dribbling against terry...or other defenders...so that it cud give me psychological boost 8) ....but neve practised for long ... i guess i have to practise lik that again:)
