Free Soccer Training Drills: Winning Tactics To Boost Throw - ins
by: Andre Botelho

If you think like me you would most certainly realize the value of integrating free soccer training drills so that every player in the team learns how to throw the ball in. In performing youth soccer drills, nearly 70 per cent of throw-ins are foul throws and the other team gets the possession of the ball.

It is therefore imperative that every player in your team must be prepared to carry out a proper throw-in and get the ball into play almost instantly. By catching the defense unexpectedly through a sudden restart the chances of keeping hold of the ball increases highly.

The requirements to teach the players to acquire the ball back in to play quickly are only certain moves and actions performed correctly at the U-10 level and below.

Some soccer coaches tend to count only on some selected players in free soccer training drills. These players are tagged as designated throwers. Obviously the designated thrower is the most exhausted player in the game. This player needs to fight his way up and down the sidelines and also across the field in order to make a simple throw in.

I would like to repeat the fact again that every player of the group should be required to throw the ball in. Often, when the ball goes out of the boundary, a quick step forward can help it come back in to play, but the coaches do not allow this to happen. Now when this player objects, he learns that he/she not being a mid-fielder is not permitted to take the throws and the midfielders take throws only.

In coaching drills make sure that all the players are encouraged to reach the ball whenever possible. This quick move, apart from giving a chance to score, also has long term impressions which are far beyond the win-lose theory. With young players, games may last only 50 or 60 minutes. Therefore it’s not a got idea to waste much of the time in bringing back into the play.

Soccer coaches who stress upon quick throws also play a key role in teaching strategic awareness to their opponents. While football dills are performed, the teams that defend against the designated thrower usually have about half a minute move back behind the ball due to the fact that usual defending against unexpected restarts would not work.

To develop youth players for higher level of play the coaches should make time to groom their players. It is essential that all the beginners learn the technique of throwing-in the ball properly; and after that it could be reverted back to the ground for the kids to carry on the game.

Make no mistake about it; since skills, knowledge of the game, and stamina are limited at the lower age groups, during free soccer training drills, a coach should never ask the young players to do the impossible. The advantage to subscribe the youth coaching community is to receive helpful resources and articles, periodic newsletters and videos in order to train youth players.
