Soccer drills improve various soccer skills in the game.
Players learn over time how to be comfortable with the ball at their feet, through repetitive touches on the soccer ball over many years.
Maximizing the number of touches with the soccer ball through various training methods from an early age by yourself, with a team and simply playing with the soccer ball, is the best way to master the ball and dominate the game.
I strongly believe in the rule of 10,000 hours to master any skill.
Ten thousand hours of touching the soccer ball, and controlling it with different parts of the foot, changing direction, and being creative, will lead to excellent soccer skills with the soccer ball.
Only practicing 2 – 3 times a week, and playing the game on the weekends, WILL NOT produce players who possess flair, creativity and magic touches on the soccer ball.
Developing the best skills on the ball takes hours and hours of additional practice outside of regular training.
My training sessions with young players include over 1000 touches on the soccer ball, within the hour that they spend with me.
That is more touches in one hour, than many games combined.
After the initial first few weeks, players will improve their touch on the ball due to repetition and 1000's of touches in training.
I always encourage players to train at home, on their own, or with friends and family.

Some of the soccer drills will be timed, while others will be done in repetitions and sets.
Coordination and agility develop quicker footwork for better and easier control of the soccer ball.
Soccer is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world.
It requires stamina to withstand different running speeds, change of direction, and controlling the soccer ball through dribbling, passing, shooting, etc.
Young soccer players develop different soccer skills through constant repetition through various soccer drills, and guidance in developing positive habits and technique.

In soccer, players continuously move around the field, supporting attack and defense.
When we get tired, our muscles absorb all the oxygen we breathe in, making us lose focus and concentration on the ball, which leads to missing shots or losing possession of the ball, to loss of confidence and lousy decision choices in the game.
To avoid getting tired quickly, improve your soccer conditioning through different soccer conditioning drills.
Running is torture for many players, but the will to compete, and learning how to enjoy running, is how great players develop.

Soccer is a game where consistency wins. Consistent training, paired with different soccer drills, will improve players soccer skills over time.
Professional soccer players worked hard to get where they are and work even harder to stay at the top of their game.
They go through different training routines for various parts of the soccer game.
Professionals train 2 - 3 times daily, and play 1 or 2 games weekly.
Being a match fit player takes sweat, hard work, and, most importantly, DEDICATION.
