Soccer Skills Training Session
#18

Soccer skills training session focusing on individual player skills. Boys use training to improve ball control, agility, speed, coordination, and self-confidence. I always encourage kids to give it their best and avoid being lazy or cheating when the coach is not looking. After all, they are just cheating themselves. I believe that being lazy and unwilling to train hard leads to mediocre results. Players are welcome to sit on the sidelines rather than be lazy and cheat through the soccer drills.

Soccer Skills Training Warm-Up

Soccer Skills Training - Juggling

The soccer skills training starts with a warm-up time and taking few shots on goal, with me being the goalkeeper. Boys then progress to juggling the soccer ball for 5-10 minutes.

Soccer Skills Training with the Ball

Soccer Skills Training - Ball Control

Soccer skills training to get more comfortable with the soccer ball from an early age is crucial for young soccer player development. Every soccer training session kicks off with timed ball control touches to build better soccer skills through training.

Soccer Skills Training with Agility Ladders

Soccer Skills Training - Agility and Speed

I love agility ladder drills and try to incorporate them in my soccer skills training sessions. Kids love seeing the agility ladders set up for training.  I decided to add double agility ladders with various movements through the ladder during this soccer training session.

  • (04:03) Double Agility Ladder Drill #2
  • (06:09) Double Agility Ladder Drill #3
  • (08:05) Double Agility Ladder Drill #4
  • (11:43) Double Agility Ladder Drill #5

Soccer Skills Training with Cones

Soccer Skills Training - Cones

I love the big cones because they are sturdy and have a more significant obstacle to get around. Create many different soccer drills using only cones in your soccer skills training sessions. I start most of my cone soccer drills without the soccer ball, focusing only on speed and footwork. I always add the soccer ball as the fun factor and add more touches to the soccer ball. 

  • (14:56) Cone Runs
  • (17:50) Cone Runs with the Ball #1
  • (21:25) Cone Runs with the Ball #2
  • (23:30) Cone Runs with the Ball #3

Soccer Training for Strength

Soccer Skills Training - Strength

Strength is a big part of every soccer player's game. Core exercises like planks and push-ups are a great way to end the soccer training session. 

I always encourage players to get into a habit of doing these exercises at home in their free time.

  • (27:48) Push-Ups

Soccer Skills Training with Game Time

Soccer Skills Training - Game Teacher

The soccer training session ends with a simple game of soccer. I try not to get involved much with talking and let the players have fun and make their own decisions.
