My thoughts on dribbling. I have been told over and over in many coaching classes that you cannot teach creativity.

Well in my opinion that is false. Creativity can be taught and learned. You see new dribbles and moves on TV or from other players and then you have to practice them to be able to execute them. A coach's practice has to allow a time for the players to be able to use this creativity.

Make sure you have players practice dribbling against each other and that they have the freedom to try some of their own moves and ideas.

Also do not discourage your attacking players from dribbling. Unless they are losing the ball alot then allow them some freedom to dribble.
