I'm playing with 5 & 6 graders, and most are short and can't dribble well, so how do they avoid the clever press?

Pass, Pass, Pass - Pressbreak

The key to breaking a press is all in the passing. Don't worry about trying to dribble through traps - you want to pass the ball down the court rather than allow the defense to steal from poor ball handlers. Have your players look ahead down the court and keep the ball high and ready to pass. Station your players at intervals so that they can pass to the open man down the court. As soon as you get past half court, you should set up your offense - you've broken the press!
