Dribbling is a hurling technique used to move the sliotar along the ground in order to avoid opponents or to place the ball in a better position for striking. It may be performed with one hand on the hurley but using two hands will provide more control.
Key Teaching Points for the Dribble
-Adopt the Ready Position
Bend the back. Place the heel of the hurley on the ground
–The non-dominant hand, placed down the handle of the hurley, guides the bas to control the sliotar
-Use alternate sides of the bas on every second stroke
-When proficient using two hands, use a one-handed dribble
