Soccer practice starts with lots of touches with the soccer ball.
Juggling the soccer ball is simple, fun and very beneficial for young soccer players developing their coordination with the soccer ball.
Timed touches get the boys to touch the soccer ball and be creative in using only one foot during the set time.
⚽️ WARM UP WITH THE SOCCER BALL
⚽️ MORE BALL CONTROL TOUCHES
Boys are always rewarded with fun soccer drills for working hard and not wondering off in soccer practice.
In this case it is in form of shooting on the coach.
⚽️ AIR BALLS FUN SHOOTING EXERCISE
Agility, speed and coordination are one of the basic building blocks of any athlete.
Fitness and speed of movement is very important in soccer and players should be getting used to working hard in every soccer practice.
I always remind my boys a simple thing about soccer training.
How you train is how you play the game. You control the effort you put in every soccer practice you attend.
⚽️ AGILITY, SPEED AND COORDINATION
(2 SPEED LADDERS, 2 CONES AND 8 HURDLES)
Young soccer players can never have enough touches with the soccer ball.
I tend to mix in one or two more timed soccer drills to add more touches for youth soccer players.
⚽️ MORE TOUCHES FOR BALL CONTROL
This soccer drill is another reward for working hard in training.
Boys are allowed to be free with their touches and finish on goal.
This also adds more fun and touches with the soccer ball while being creative around the cones.
⚽️ DRIBBLING AND SHOOTING
Many things that help complete soccer players perform at the top of their ability is the core strength that is developed over years of training.
I always bring the soccer practice session slowly to an end with core strengthening exercises.
⚽️ CORE WORKOUT
Every soccer practice should be finished with instruction free game for the boys.
Occasionaly I will freeze the game when I see everyone out of positions and just chasing the soccer ball. I will take 30 sec explaining to players to alway look for empty space on the field.
⚽️ FUN TIME
⚽️ THE END
⚽️ TRAIN HARDER!
⚽️ TRAIN CONSISTENT!
⚽️ PLAY BETTER!
