In this weeks lab we were focused on the skills of dribbling, passing. In my lab we had cones set up and the students would dribble a basketball in between the cones and then pass the ball at the end to the next person in line. We also used a soccer ball had the students again dribble through the cones and then set the ball down and kick it to the next person in line. The students had an easy time with moving the ball through and then kicking the ball, but with basketball dribbling they would use one hand look down at the ball and slap the ball. We got the students to look up and to cross-over as well. I had planned to instead of using cones people and have the students try and steal the ball from the person dribbling but that did not fit the age level that we had this particular week.
