Soccer Drills: Secrets Revealed

Listen to what I say even if you don’t consent. Talking about soccer drills, the most important thing for the players is to have an understanding of the game for which they should be taught the basics first. This soccer training should always come first in the training schedule before moving on to the more problematical aspects of training or the right approach to play the game.

Since you are a soccer coach, the onus lies on you that the players start on a right note. As such, they must be taught all necessary soccer skills that are very basic to the game. Given below are a few soccer basics which are essential for all prospective players to learn.

Coaching the players to dribble and shoot the ball: Shooting and dribbling are the two most basic soccer skills to master. In order to be successful in the game, these skills play a defining role. But, for teaching these soccer exercises, you should see that all preparations are made in advance.

Start with positioning several players over the soccer field and arrange all players in a straight line on either ends of field.

After that indicate the players to kick off. Running around the field, they would try to grab the ball by their feet as they dribble and shoot the ball in the goal located at the opposite end of the field. These two soccer drills will be easily mastered by the players if they practice it regularly.

Passing the ball and following directions: These are the two skills that help players to discover and practice unity in game. In the end, soccer is a team game that must be jointly shared by all the team members. They can never learn to play as a team if they do not possess good passing skills, and do not know how to follow simple directions.

In order to teach them first rate passing skills and help them follow directions, there is an easy exercise. To begin with, line up the entire team in one row at the either end of the field. One team member should be then made to stand in front of the row almost 5-10 feet away.

You'll signal them to go and the first person in line will attempt to catch the ball from the teammate in the field. When you tell them to stop, the player having the ball should pass it to the first individual in line. This is a soccer practice that has the potential to teach the players the ability to listen and follow directions.

Handling the Ball: As a coach, you must train the players on the skill of dealing with the ball with the help of other body parts, excluding their feet. This way they'll be able to perform more spontaneously on the field. An easy way for players to do it is by practicing to stop the ball with the back or bouncing the ball using knees or the head.

This is the easiest way to teach basic soccer drills that can produce great players who can then move on to actual game skills and more complicated routine.
