Anna Giannoni: Hey guys, my name is Anna Giannoni. I’m a former college field hockey player and a CoachUp coach. And this is the indian dribble. Yeah, here you uh, do the, girl thing. The importance of the Indian dribble is to allow you to have ball control and be able to navigate through high traffic areas on the field. What you’re gonna do is, take your left hand and put it at the end of your stick, gonna take your right hand and put it at the other end of the grip. Gonna bend your knees, gonna start with with the ball at your left knee. You’re gonna simply pull to the right, and while you’re doing that, you wanna rotate your left hand over. Back and forth. Make sure when you’re doing this you’re shifting your weight back and forth and you’re keeping your head up so you know where you’re going.
