Possession Games (Passing and Receiving)
Passing and receiving in soccer seems simple but there are many components which can be the difference in a team being able to maintain possession of the ball and not. Players must have proper movement off the ball in terms of timing of the approach (checking to the ball) and receiving with an open body to the field in order to go forward and attack or to shield and retain possession of the ball. Whether its a wide flank player keeping his/her heels on the touch or a central player checking to the ball with a proper body angle so he/she is open to the field, mobility and movement are the first aspect of receiving. Also, players must learn to use the correct foot to receive into space, and then play with the correct foot to quickly release the ball.
This course will focus on technical activities and then progress into different possession games with different variables changing such as numbers up/down, touch restrictions, spacing, and different objectives to receive a “point.”
Non Dominant foot/Ball Manipulation
This course will focus on improving player’s confidence on the ball. Being able to manipulate the ball makes everything else in the game easier.It will develop players dribbling ability and confidence in going either direction. This helps a player become more balanced and unpredictable to an opponent.A player will also be able to play faster. They don’t have to reach or maneuver to receive a ball with their dominant foot, which will increase their speed of game. Being a 2 footed player opens up the entire field to a player. The course will cover the fundamentals below using both feet.
