Purpose: For students to work on their dribbling skills and at the same time protect the ball.

Equipment: One basketball for each student and a smooth surface area marked with cones.

Formation: Scattered in the playing area

Description: Each player dribbles throughout the area, while dribbling and controlling their own ball, each player attempts to cause another player to lose control of the ball and knock it out of bounds. Play continues until only two or three players are left in the area.

Variations: As the number of players decrease so does the area of the square. Make sure the players that have been eliminated are doing some sort of dribbling skills out side the boundaries.
