Indian dribble

Indian dribble

The Indian dribble was first seen at the 1956 Olympics.

It was named after the superb dribbling skills of the Indian team.

You can use the Indian dribble to change the direction of the ball to beat an opponent, and it's particularly difficult to defend against.

STEP ONE

Indian dribble

The aim is to move the ball from the forehand to the backhand and back again.

Keep your knees bent and grip your stick in the dribbling position with hands around 30cms apart.

Put the V of your left hand down the back of the stick to make it easier to rotate.

STEP TWO

Indian dribble

Use your left hand to rotate the stick fully over the ball and use your right hand to guide the stick.

Holding your right hand a little looser around the stick should help.

Turn the stick over the ball from the right hand side of your body to the left hand side and back again.

STEP THREE

Indian dribble

The ball should be out in front of the body and moved in a zig-zag pattern across the ground.

Transfer your body weight from left foot to right foot and vice versa.

Keep your stick close to the ball and try to look up while you're dribbling.
