Now here's the catch. Crabs must attack the oncoming dribblers with only their feet. They walk around the penalty box on their hands and feet, with their butt facing downward. Every time they kick a ball out of the grid the loser of the ball becomes a crab. When players successfully make it across the penalty box, they wait for the coach's command to head back across the box again. By the end of the game there should be an entire penalty box filled with crabs and one or two players trying to dribble through all of them.
What Coaches Should Look For
This is a great game for younger kids to play. They love the idea of walking around like crabs and it really does increase their ability to dribble. Because they are so anxious to avoid the crabs, they are forced to keep their heads up and look for openings that they can dribble through and stay free of crab legs.
Make sure that once players cross the penalty box, they wait for you to restart them on their way back. You should wait until everyone who hasn't been caught by the crabs to pass before starting the dribblers on their way back.
