Cobi's DRIBBLING Tips

1. Keep your head up and the ball close to your feet when you dribble. Practice with both feet and use different parts of each foot too.

2. Try not to dribble into a crowd. If you do, keep your body between the closest player and the ball and be ready to pass to a teammate.

3. When you see an opening, don't be afraid to take the space. Dribbling into your oponent's area puts pressure on the other team.
