Ball Manipulation & Control (15 mins)

Learning Objectives

Mastery of the ball is the very heart of the game. The skill to make the ball do what we want it to do, to be able to place it exactly where you want it to go, to be comfortable with it in our possession, these are the foundations of the game and the basic building blocks for future successful players.

Players work in 2s, dribbling the ball to the middle line, making as many touches as possible on the ball.

When they meet each other in the middle, they perform a turn and go back from where they have started, so they can start again.

- To improve mastery of feints.

- Timing of feint.

- Body shape/desguise.

- Over ball for balance, low/quick step to side.

- Part of foot used - inside/outside/sole.

- Perform turns, such as Inside & outside, drag back, Cruyff, Maradona`s Turn, etc...
