1v1 Defending ~ Learn Basic & Advanced Techniques! + Online Soccer Academy

Do you know how to be a GREAT 1v1 defender? Here is a HINT - it's not all about being BIG, FAST, and STRONG! Subscribe - http://bit.ly/Yl0Ful ----- Click "Show More" for Key Points and More Info ----- We help players improve Our mission is to inspire players that if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work anything in life is possible! 200+ Free OSA Soccer Training Videos & Free Weekly OSA eNewsletter http://www.OnlineSoccerAcademy.com ----- Are you a Coach? Would you like to host an OSA Soccer Camp? We do camps anywhere in the United States for teams and clubs, of all levels, that love OSA videos. 30 players is all it takes to make a camp happen.

Yes, those things help but the best defenders are the smartest and don't just relay on their athleticism to win tackles; they use their minds. In this OSA video I will show you basic key points and advanced key points. Key Points: tackle 1. Close down space and be 1-2 steps away from the attacker. If you are to far away that gives them time to get their head up and look around. Get close to force their head down. 2. Jockey, be patient and don't dive in. The best attackers want you to dive in on them because they will just touch it around you and go. So we want to jockey them. 3. Force the attacker onto their weak foot. 4. Be on your toes! Don't be back on your heels. 5. Keep your feet moving, don't stand like a statue. 6. Keep your eye on the ball! Do not look at the attackers feet, hips or shoulders. Focus on the ball. 7. Win the ball with confidence when the time is right. When you do step in get your body behind you. Don't just reach and lunge for the ball with your foot. Equipment Needed: You will need a few balls, one will work if that's all you got, 10 cones and a partner. Exercise Player Can Do: Set up two cone goals and a small field around the goals. This is your 1v1 field. Don't make it to tiny because you want enough room to work on your defending technique. If you don't have enough cones to make a sideline then don't have sidelines and you be the judge when it goes out. One goal will be the defending goal, the other the attacking goal. Behind the defender goal is all the balls. The defender will pass the ball to the attacker, then sprint and close the space down, set your feet and start defending. The attacker tries to beat the defender and score through the cone goals. If the defender wins it they try to score or kick the ball out. After the defender goes 5 times then switch with your partner. Repeat this process until you are mastering it or get tired. Advanced Key Points: 1. DO NOT take giant steps! Keep your feet underneath your body by taking smaller steps and moving your feet fast. Versus taking big giant steps and getting off balance and not being able to react as fast. 2. Get your arm out, use your body and be physical. I am NOT saying foul or hurt anyone, not at all. But when that attacker goes to take a touch by you because you have your body angled correctly when you turn to take your step you will be a step ahead of them. At that moment get your arm out and put it into their chest/abs as you are in your running stride. This will push them back a bit and push you forward. This should like part of your running stride. Do not just run side by side with each other and not make contact. Be careful not to foul. 3. Use the sideline as a 2nd defender when you can. If you are near the sideline force your attacker to the sideline so they only have a limited amount of room to try and dribble around you. 4. Let the attacker make the mistake, then win it. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the attacker is just running by you and you are frozen in place for a second or two you are diving in. Don't dive in. Be patient. If you feel like the attacker passes the ball back but you didn't do a good job because you didn't win it from them, don't think you have to win every ball. If your attacker passes backwards or sideways you are doing your job. Exercise to Practice on your Own To practice on your own set up a start cone and an attacker cone 15 yards ahead of you. Set a ball next to the attacker cone. Sprint from the start cone, close down the imaginary attacker, then jockey back to the start cone. Do this 5 times, then rest and repeat. Just pretend there is an attacker making moves on you. Share on Facebook! - http://on.fb.me/1kR8y9p Share on Twitter! - http://bit.ly/LIIY7d

They are happy to help! ----- Friend US! http://www.Facebook.com/OnlineSoccerAcademy http://www.Twitter.com/JaredMontz http://www.Instagram.com/JaredMontz http://www.YouTube.com/OnlineSoccerAcademy ______________________________________________________ Description: The chip in soccer can be used as a pass or shot. Mainly it's for passing. You want to use a chip pass when you want to lob it in to your teammate over a defender that's in between you and your teammate. It's easier for a teammate to receive this type of pass then you crushing it at them! Key Points: 1. Strike underneath ball / Turn foot out using laces 2. Lean Back 3. Follow through low, not high Equipment Needed: Ball, cones and a trash can Exercise Player Can Do: Set a target up like a trash can about 30 yards away from you. Place some cones between you and the target. Then practice chipping balls at the trash can. Don't rush; this is technique work, not fitness. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the ball isn't getting high enough for you make sure you are not kicking down on it. Keep your swing low from start to finish so you can get under the ball. If the ball isn't going straight for you make sure your shoulders are facing your target when you finish your chip. Also don't have your foot moving after you hit the ball. So keep your foot turned out. Think of a golf club. Does the bottom of the golf club move during the swing? Bonus Tip: The chip pass is great for those over the top through balls. For example if the field is hard and it's windy and you hit a straight driven through ball it may run out of bounds or end up in the goalie's hands. If you hit a chip with backspin it will slow the ball down when it hits the ground and allow your teammate to get on the end of it. When practicing place the ball on a nice piece of grass so the ball sits up high, don't place it low in the grass.

Bottom inside corner to outside top corner 2.) Approach from an angle 3.) Plant foot a little behind the ball 4.) Shift shoulders/body to target Exercise player can do: Set up a trash can or small goal about 25-30 yards away from you. Halfway between you and the trash can put 3 cones in the middle. Try to bend the ball around the cones and hit the target on the other side. If you are lucky enough to have a goal in your backyard then use your goal as your target.

They are happy to help! ----- Today we are learning how to be aggressive to the ball in soccer or just aggressive in general. Description: Don't get me wrong this video is not about teaching you how to punch players in the face or put in dirty tackles and hurt players. This video is not about that at all. This Online Soccer Academy training video is about being competitive, being aggressive and wanting to win every time you step on the training or game field. Key Points: 1. Believe 100% that when you go in for a tackle you will win the ball. Don't doubt yourself, or hope you win it or just stick your leg out there. Believe in your mind you will win it, have no doubt. If you lose the tackle, so what, react positive and hustle back on defense. But going into the tackle you always believe you are going to win it. 2. Be scared of no one on the field! When you step onto the field you are created equal to the players you are playing against. It's up to you to prove who had a better game by the end of it. 3. Reinforce positive thoughts in your mind through out training or in the game. Say things to yourself like "I am a winner", "I will win this tackle", "I am great player, I don't care who I am playing against". Exercise Player Can Do: There's no one exercise you can do to practice how to be aggressive to the ball. My advice is when you are training, train hard, push yourself and try to create that competitive attitude and desire to win that all great players seem to have. When training by yourself maybe listen to some harder rock music or any type of music that gets you extra pumped up. Train like you have something to prove to all your doubters out there. This will help make you more aggressive. Things to Note! There's nothing wrong with being a competitor, playing the game to win and playing hard. You don't want to hurt any players, you don't want to play bad soccer in exchange for winning and you certainly don't want to be a poor sport if you lose but it's totally okay to want to win. You should want to have that competitive attitude on the field! Bonus Tip! You are the only one that controls your aggressive competitive mindset! I can't, your coach can't, your parents can't. We can all help motivate you, but ultimately it's up to you!

Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Description: Pre game preparation is a personal thing for each player. Each player prepares different. This video will be a suggestion of things to do. By all means though, do what is best for you. Key Points: 1. Relax! If you have a 3pm game do not be walking around the mall all day while you wait for your game. Stay inside and watch movies, read or watch soccer. Take care of your body and it will thank you during the game! 2. Hydrate! Drink lots of water a day or two prior to your game and leading up to your game. Save the sports drinks like Gatorade for after the game. Don't drink soft drinks prior to the game either. Being properly hydrated will make a big difference in your performance. The gas in the car is like the water in your body. If your car runs out of gas, it stops. Same with your body, if it runs out of water it will stop too. 3. Take your mind off the game! Yes, you want to think about the game and mentally prepare but don't drive yourself crazy all day getting nervous about your game. Hopefully watching movies or reading will help take your mind off the game. 4. Mentally prepare! As game time gets closer its time to start thinking about the game more. Mentally visualize plays in your head. Imagine yourself playing your position, receiving a pass from a teammate and then playing a killer through pass. Visualize these types of plays in your head. Then when you do it in the game you will have been there before in your mind and it will make the play easier. 5. Sleep! Get a proper night's rest the night before your game! Take a nap mid day too if that helps you! I know it helped me! I love naps!! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are playing games and are tired and not prepared then you are not following the key points. Take care of your body. Preparation is a big part of the game.

This video will help soccer coaches and parents coach soccer to their players. It of course can be applied to all ages. Description: There are many different ways to dribble a soccer ball. We are going to learn today how to dribble for speed with your laces. Key Points: 1. Lock your ankle/Point Toe Down 2. Push ball forward with your laces (don't kick!) 3. Keep dribbling foot ahead of non dribbling foot Equipment needed: 2 cones Exercise Player Can Do: Place a start cone and an end cone about 15 yards in front. Start by having player walk and do dribbling with laces technique down to second cone and back. Repeat 3-5 times or until player feels comfortable. Once comfortable have player do exercise on a jog. Repeat 3-5 times or until player feels comfortable. Then increase speed to as fast as they can do. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the ball is getting to far away from the player when they dribble this means they are kicking the ball, not pushing it forward. If the player looks like they are going to stub their foot or trip at any moment and just aren't going as fast as you think they could it is because their non dribbling foot is to close to the ball. The ball should be out in front of the non dribbling foot to help with balance and making it easier to go faster. Remember these exercises are to teach dribbling with your laces technique. There are multiple different dribbling styles, techniques and exercises you can practice. Remember if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work, anything in life is possible!

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. "My son and daughter love their new shirts! I'm a happy customer!" - Greg Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ The exercise involves two parts. It will get your calves burning and make them stronger, it will force you to focus on your touch and it will work on your cardio. As you get tired your body starts to react slower so in this exercise really focus mentally on having a good touch. Equipment Needed: You will need a ball and 5-10 cones. Exercise Player Can Do: To set up the exercise place out your cones in a line with space in between them so you can dribble through them. I like to place my foot in front of the cone and add a bit more space in front of my foot before I place the second cone down. Once you have a cone line of 5-9 cones set up an end cone about 10 yards away. You be the judge of how many cones you want to dribble through. First Part of this Exercise: Do inside to outside touches for 30 seconds on each foot; 1 minute total. Try not to move forward or backward, stay on the same imaginary line. For more tips on how to do that watch our OSA video about inside and outside touches - http://onlinesocceracademy.com/video.html?ytid=Grn0RMGA3oM) Second Part: After one minute of inside to outside touches go straight into your cone dribbling. Do two reps all right footed dribbling, two reps all left foot dribbling. Take your time and get through the cones right. As you feel more conformable increase your speed going through the cones. Make sure when you get out, you take a bigger touch, explode to the end cone and get your eyes up to see the field. It's a hard acceleration to the top cone and then a light, light jog back. This is your recovery run. That's one set. Immediately get into a 2nd set. Do 3 sets total and then rest. Now lets do the exercise! I like this exercise because it works on the fundamentals. Dribbling, ball control and 1st touch are so important no matter what position you play. This is a great exercise to incorporate into the early part of your training sessions regularly. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: Now for some things that could be going wrong. If you are taking your touch to far between the cones then you are taking to big of a touch, take a smaller touch. If you are constantly hitting the cones then they are to close together. Spread your cones out more, make it easier in the beginning and get it right before you make it more challenging.

Ankle Locked, toe down, use laces (you don't hit a baseball with a loose bat) 2. Plant foot pointed at target 3. Land on Kicking Foot (you do this to help generate power and help keep the ball low) Equipment Needed: Ball and Fence or goal if you have one. If you have extra balls then use them. Exercise Player Can Do: Set ball up about 10 yards in front of the goal, then shoot for technique. Repeat until you feel comfortable. We are working on technique so don't rush this. Advanced Key Points: 1. Generate power from thigh, not calf 2. Shoulders face target (don't rotate them) 3. Keep head down (some of the best goals you will score you barely see them go in) Exercise Player Can Do: Break down the technique. Stand a step behind an imaginary ball. Step towards it like you are going to shoot, pause your technique showing thigh back, chest over the ball head down, then bring leg to imaginary ball in shooting motion, pause showing ankle locked toe down, then swing through and land on kicking foot ending up a foot or so ahead of where you struck the imaginary ball. Do this a few times until you feel comfortable with your technique, then repeat the earlier shooting exercise mentioned. If you are a coach watching this, this point is where you can jump in like a chiropractor and adjust the players body into proper shooting technique. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you fee like you are not getting enough power it's mainly because you are not getting your thigh back and your knee down is just moving. Make sure you get your thigh back. Also don't stutter step to the ball. Run up smooth and then that last step to the ball should be a little bit bigger allowing your legs to open up, getting your thigh back and now you have the space you need to generate leg speed. If your shots are constantly going over the goal this could be two things. One you are leaning back when you shoot, don't lean back. The second is if the ball is going over the goal and it is has back spin that means you are flicking your foot. So you hit with your laces, then flick your ankle up which causes the ball to go up. Keep your ankle locked toe down all the way through your follow through until you land on your kicking foot. This will help keep the ball down. Bonus Tip: Confidence is the most important key point in shooting. Never going into a shot thinking you are going to miss. Always, always believe without a doubt you will score when you shoot. If you miss, no big deal just hustle back on defense. You won't score every time, but you can believe you will score every time! Confidence! Remember if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work, anything in life is possible! Free Royalty Free Music from http://www.DanoSongs.com

They get a lot of complements on them. Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ This video is geared towards beginner players and players needing help with their touch. If you are an advanced player watching this stick around and you will learn an easy exercise that pros like to do on how to challenge your touch! Receiving a pass in soccer is important; if you can't do it you will have problems. Key Points: 1. Ankle locked, toe up, raise foot an inch or so off the ground. You want your toe up to provide more surface area for the ball to hit. If your toe is down, less of your foot will touch the ball increasing the chance you will mess up your touch. 2. Position inside of your foot to the incoming ball. 3. Push ball forward or cushion ball in. If the ball is coming soft then you want to push the ball forward a little bit. If the ball is coming really hard at you then cushion the ball in and try to take some of the pace out of the ball. So right as it hits you bring your leg back. Think of catching an egg on this one. Do you catch an egg and just let it hit your hands? No, you cradle and cushion it in. Same applies with a fast coming soccer ball. 4. Touch sets up pass, dribble or shot. Typically if no defenders are around you want to take a touch a few steps in front of you towards your dominant foot so your next touch is a pass or a shot. Every situation is different so it's up to you to decide how close or far to take your touch. Equipment Needed: Ball and a Partner or Fence. Soccer Exercise Player Can Do: If you don't have a partner. Use a fence or wall. Have your partner pass you the ball, starting off slow passes. Receive it and pass it back. Repeat until comfortable. Once comfortable start increasing the pace of the pass and challenging yourself. I need you to be my partner for this one! For you advanced players one things pros like to do during warm ups is challenging each other's touches. So get a partner, stand about 10-15 yards away and pass it at each other really hard, I am really hard. The idea is to receive it under control and pass it back. If someone messes up have fun and tease them a little bit. The teasing and lighthearted trash talking for this one is a fun way to add pressure to the situation making it more challenging. Pros are always challenging themselves. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are not making a good touch it is because of two things. If the ball is being passed at you hard and it just seems to fly off of you as if it hit a wall that is because you are not cushioning that ball in. Right as the ball hits you bring your leg back a little to take the pace out of the ball. Also make sure your foot doesn't look like this! Remember you want your ankle locked toe up so more of your foot will be on the ball giving you greater control. Bonus Tip! Don't be nervous receiving a pass. Once you have practiced a bunch be confident in your ability. As the ball is traveling to you do not be thinking "Don't mess up, don't mess up". Be confident! You need to be thinking, "I will control this ball and put it exactly where I want too".

Our mission is to inspire athletes that if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work anything in life is possible! ______________________________________________________ This Online Soccer Academy (OSA) video is sponsored by our parent company Believe in it®. Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want. Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ 1st touch in soccer is everything. If you can't control a ball it's hard to play this game. Most of this exercise will be controlling a ball out of the air but the same technique applies to the ground too. Key Points: 1. Think of catching an egg. Would you catch an egg like this? No, because it would crack. Would you catch an egg like this? Yes, because you are cradling or cushioning it in. This same idea applies with your foot. 2. Have your foot meet the ball out in front of your plant leg. This will give you room to cushion the ball in. 3. Cushion the ball in right as it's about to hit your foot. Do not let it hit you and then start cushioning it in. That's to late, it's all about timing. 4. Make contact on the upper middle part of the ball. This helps get your touch to go down. If you make contact under the ball or on the lower part of the ball, there is a good chance the ball will pop up on you. 5. Have a slight lean forward with your chest. Don't lean back when you take your touch. 6. Keep your eyes on the ball. Look at the ball when you take your touch. Exercise Player Can Do: Start off having your partner with the ball in their hands. They throw it to you under hand with little spin on the ball from 5 yards away. They throw it, you control it and pass it back on the ground. Then repeat for 1 minute and switch with your partner. Your partner should not be throwing the ball to hard at you. Decent pace but not to hard. We are working on control and we have to take baby steps to improve, don't immediately start making it to hard on yourself. Once you start to get it, then you can increase speed of the throw and distance. Repeat this exercise from 5 yards until you get it. Once you are getting it have your partner throw it from 10 yards and at a faster pace. Then have them kick it from 15 yards and kick it at a fast pace. Keep increasing distance and speed of pass as you get more confident. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: Some things that could be going wrong. If the ball is hitting you and just flying off your foot then you are not cushioning the ball in. Think of the egg, cushion the egg in when you catch it, don't let it just hit you and crack. If you can't get the timing down then your partner is throwing or kicking the ball to fast to you. Ask them politely to not pass it so hard so you can get the timing down. Once you do get the timing down, then you can ask them to speed up the pass to you. Bonus Tips! Juggling is a great way to improve ball control! Click here to watch OSA videos teaching you how to juggle. Improve your juggling and receiving hard passes out of the air will start to come more naturally to you. When using other parts of your body for controlling a pass the same idea applies; cushion the ball in. Don't let it just hit you and bounce off.

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. "My son and daughter love their new shirts! I'm a happy customer!" - Greg Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ I get asked this question a lot so I decided it was time to make a video and give you some soccer tryout advice! I can't speak for all coaches but some coaches use the acronym TIPS. Which means Technique, Intelligence, Personality and Speed. So think along those lines. Key Points to having a Great Try Out: 1. Be prepared! Make sure you are fit, your touch is sharp, you are confident checking your shoulders so your speed of play is high and your passing is crisp. 2. Make friends once you get there! If you don't know anyone at the tryout stick your hand out before the tryouts to a few people, introduce yourself and get to know some of the players. You will feel more comfortable once you know a few people. Don't try to meet everyone there at once, then you will look like you are trying to hard, just a few people. 3. Don't try to do too much! Lots of players including pros sometimes feel the need to impress the coaches by doing too much; trying to be the hero every play. Just play the game the way you know how to play and you will be great. If you are a defender, defend well and complete your passes. Don't try nutmeging players in your own 18. 4. Be confident and Believe in it®. You are trying out because you can believe that you can make it. If you are scared and nervous to get cut you will play scared and your performance will suffer. A little nervousness is natural but believe you will make it because you worked hard to be ready. If you get cut, deal with it and then move on to another team but never go into a try out preparing to be cut! 5. Be a good pro! What I mean by this is be positive with your teammates, pick up trash around the bench area, help carry the coaches gear or pick up cones if need be and when the coach calls you in always be one of the first few players jogging in. Don't kiss up, but show you want to be there. 6. My extra good advice for you is to communicate loud and clear when playing by saying "Man On", "Turn", "Switch It", etc. Most young players don't talk when they are playing which is not good. If you are talking loud and clear when playing do you think the coach is going to hear you from the sideline? Yes, and if they hear you that means they are probably looking at you and if they are looking at you that means they are going to remember you and you will stand out from the pack! Plus coaches always want leaders! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: Yelling at teammates, not trying hard, giving up on plays, not tracking back on defense when you make a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes in soccer, everyone. The difference between good players and great players is how you react to those mistakes. Do you put your head down and walk back when you make a bad pass or do you hustle back on defense and react positive? Always react positive! Bonus Tip: Show up at try outs looking great! Don't look like you just rolled out of bad. Put a little gel in your hair, wash your face, make sure that pre wrap head band looks sharp, put on a clean shirt!! First impressions are important! If you look good, you will play great! Now go out and have a great try out!!

How To Play Fullback in Soccer

Subscribe at http://www.OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. We feature soccer training videos, player spotlights, motivational quotes and much more! Our mission is to inspire athletes that if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work anything in life is possible! __________________________________________ This Online Soccer Academy (OSA) video is sponsored by our parent company Believe in it®. Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. "My son and daughter love their new shirts! I'm a happy customer!" - Greg Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com __________________________________________ Tip #1 Your job as the fullback is NOT to be the playmaker. When you get the ball in your defensive and middle third make a simple pass to one of your open teammates. On the screen here you will see a few simple passing options. 1. Is your center mid. They are your playmaker so get them the ball when you can. 2. Your outside wing. 3. Your center back. 4. Your keeper. 5. A chip pass into the forward. Tip #2 Don’t stand on the sideline when you “get wide”. When the keeper or your center back has the ball you need to get wide. If you stand on the sideline as shown here then when you get the ball you have one less option. You don’t have an option wide to your winger because you are now as wide as you can go. By standing inside the sideline about 10 yards or so you now have the passing wide option. Tip #3 You need to be good at defending. Tip #4 Stand with your body open to the field. What I mean is if your center back has the ball, don’t stand like this. Why not? Because now you can’t see what’s behind you and your body is positioned to take a touch back in the direction the ball came. Instead stand like this, with your body open to the field. This way you can see the ball, what’s up the field and also your body is positioned to take a positive touch. Tip #5 Keep an eye on your back line. If your line is stepping up you should be too. If your line is shifting left, you should too. Keep looking around your during the game, don’t just stare at the ball. Tip #6 Communicate loud and clear! As a fullback you can see the whole game on offense. Most times anyway the game is in front of you; meaning there are usually no defenders sneaking up behind you when you are on offense. So shout at your teammates and let them know Turn, Man On, etc. Even if you didn’t pass it to them. Tip #7 Overlap when you can! If the winger on your side of the field has the ball, occasionally sprint forward and overlap them. Try to get involved in the attack and get a cross off. Tip #8 Play a creative pass when you are in the attacking third. If you are in the attacking third, try bending the ball in behind the defenders for an attacker to run on to it. Or play a ball over the top. Exercise Player Can Do: You will need a few balls, a partner and 5 cones. Set the balls up at a cone where your center back is. Then have the center back pass you a ball. You angle your body to the field, check your shoulders to see what is coming and then take a set up touch in the direction you want to go for your pass. You decide if you will pass it to the goalie, center mid, winger, back to your center back or chip it to your forward. Let’s do a few and that will give you a better idea of how it works. Do a few sets and then change the start ball position. Put the balls at the goalie spot, the winger, the center mid. You are working on game simulation so come game time you won’t panic and just kick the ball. Instead you will keep possession. Some things that could be going wrong. If you keep making bad passes and losing the ball stop trying to be a playmaker. Just make a simple pass to a teammate. Bonus Tip: Just because you have 30 yards of space ahead of you as a fullback doesn’t mean you have to dribble. Sometimes yes, dribble, but for the most part make a pass and keep the ball moving. 2nd bonus tip! When in doubt kick it out! If an attacker is tight on you in your defensive third and you don’t have a great passing option to keep possession then just kick the ball out. Now your team can re organize and get ready. Your mantra as fullback should be I defend hard and make simple passes. Do that and you will be great.

Make your coach feel pro! Buy them a BobbleHead at http://www.custombobble.com/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Key Points: 1. Let the ball drop low. If the ball is high in the air do not try to kick it. Let it drop low. 2. Keep your ankle locked, not loose, and curl your foot back towards your shin. - You want your ankle hard like a rock, not loose like jello. So when the ball hits your foot it bounces off as if it hit a rock. If your foot is loose like jello your foot will absorb the pressure of the ball. - Do not curl your foot back all the way to your shin. If you do this, it will cause the ball to come back and hit you in the shins. - If you don't curl your foot back and you point your toe down, the ball will hit your foot and go forward away from you. 3. Make contact with your laces, specifically the part of your laces near the base of your toes. 4. The ball should have back spin. 5. Keep your juggling foot out in front of you when juggling, not behind you. Do not bring your foot all the way back when you juggle. A juggling touch requires little movement. If you bring your foot to far back it takes to much time to bring it forward and make contact with the ball. 6. Keep your eyes on the ball. Exercise Player Can Do: An exercise we can do to practice. Start practicing your foot juggling motion without the ball. This will get you use to how your technique will feel. Once comfortable get the ball out. Using your hands toss the ball up, juggle it once and catch it. As you feel confident go for two juggles and catch it, three juggles and catch it. Then continue to the point where you don't catch it and you only pick the ball up with your hands when it drops. Do this for 10-15 minutes. Juggling is not something you practice once and don't do again. I'd suggest practicing juggling for at least 10-15 minutes at the end of every session you do. Yes, when you get good you will start juggling from the ground by doing a pick up move with your feet. But right now we are not working on pick up moves from the ground, we are working on feet juggling. This is why I advise you to start with your hands, not your feet. Reason being is so we focus on feet juggling, not juggling pick up moves. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: Some things you could be doing wrong. If the ball is going away from you in a forward direction you are not curling your foot back towards your shin. If the ball is going to side of you when you take your touch then you are hitting the outside of your foot. Keep your eyes on the ball when you take your touch and hit the ball with your laces, near the base of your toes; not the outside of your foot.

Learn to chip a soccer ball here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImFMcRjt69w Key Points: Key Point #1 - Line up behind the ball and a tad to the side. Key Point #2 - Your shoulders should face your target on your approach and follow through. Turn your shoulders and the ball will go where your shoulders told it to. Think of your shoulders like the scope of a gun. If the scope is off you aint hitting your target son! Key Point #3 - Your plant foot should be 1.5 to 2 steps away from the ball when you make contact. This allows your foot to be formatted properly for your swing. Key Point #4 - Turn your kicking foot to the side, rotate your foot down and make contact with the ball just below the base of your big toe. Key Point #5 - Strike the lower part of the ball but not directly under it. For a chip you strike underneath the ball. Doing this will get your plenty of height but not as much distance. By striking on the lower part of the ball you will still get height but a lot more distance. Key Point #6 - Have a low back swing and a low follow through. DO NOT come down on the ball because all that power you created in your backswing is going down in the ground. You don't want that. With a low back swing, now all your power is moving forward in the direction where you want the ball to go. If you follow through high on your swing this will cause the ball to not go up as high as it should when you kick it. Key Point #7 - It's about technique, not power. Don't be all Hulk like on your swing! You should be smooth. The best players make this look easy because they relay on technique not pure strength. Key Point #8 - Make sure you lean back when you follow through. Do not be hunched over the ball. Exercise Player Can Do: You will need as many balls as you have, 4 cones and a lot of space. Please don't do this in your backyard and break your parent's windows! Start off by taking a few swings without the ball. Get your body use to how this will feel. Once comfortable get the ball out and take some swings. Don't worry about accuracy or distance yet. Focus on technique. You could even start with chipping the ball a few times and then progress to height and distance. When you feel confident with your technique set up four cones as a square target up the field. Try to kick the ball high and far and make it land in the square. Repeat until you master it or feel tired. Make sure you are good and warmed up and don't do this for an hour. I don't want you pulling anything! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If your plant foot is to close to the ball then you can't get the proper swing. You will end up using the inside of your foot, not rotating your foot down like I talked about in Key Point #4. If you aren't getting much height check your backswing. Most players have a high back swing. Don't kick your leg out when you step to the ball. Instead take a step to the ball and let your back leg trail behind you. Bonus Tip: Increase your kicking leg speed as your technique improves. Technique equals power. When your technique is solid then you can add more pure strength to your swing. Do this by increasing the speed at which you swing your kicking leg to strike the ball. This will equal greater distance on your kicks.

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. "My son and daughter love their new shirts! I'm a happy customer!" - Greg Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Description: Creating space is important. Each level of the game you move up you have less and less time and space on the ball. So the more you can do to create space and time for yourself on the field, the more successful you will be. Key Points: 1. Take a Defender one way, then go the other! 2. Run behind the Defender, not in front of them, so they can't see you. 3. When the defender turns their head to look for you, that's when you cut back in the opposite direction. 4. This movement can be a few steps or a big run. It all depends on the situation. Equipment Needed: Ball, five cones and a partner. If you don't' have a partner use a wall or fence or simulate this exercise without someone passing to you. Exercise Player Can Do: Set up three cones a few steps apart from each other in a straight line. Then place a fourth cone five yards to the side of those cones and a fifth cone 10 yards ahead of the fourth cone. Your partner stands 10 yards ahead of the three cones. You stand on the edge of the three cones. Imagine in a game these cones are one defender marking you. Now make a movement, behind the cones, to create space, open up to the fourth cone, receive the pass and dribble to the fifth cone. Repeat 10 times, and then switch your partner. Repeat until you are tired. Set up the cones in different areas and distances to create different game situations where creating space is needed. You be creative! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are not able to create space with this type of run make sure you are not running in front of the defender. If so, they can see you more easily and anticipate your run. Run behind the defender when possible. Bonus Tip: When you turn to run and create space, keep your body open to your teammate and the field. Don't turn and run with your back to your teammate not looking at the ball.

Soccer Tips - How not to be Nervous before a Game

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want. Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Being a little nervous before a game is natural and should be expected and welcomed. Being a tad nervous helps you focus and not get cocky before a game. Being so nervous you are scared to play or mess up is a problem. It happens to players at all levels of the game from youth to pro. The good news is, it's a fixable problem! You work hard on the physical part of your game but this video will help you work hard on your mental game. Your mind is a powerful tool. If you can convince your mind you do believe in yourself and your abilities you will be less nervous before the game. Of course you have to be training hard to constantly improve your game, to back up that self belief. Soccer at the pro level is 90 percent mental. Meaning everyone is talented, but the biggest difference in good players and great players is their self belief in their abilities. You want to be confident, not cocky. Key Points: 1. Convince your mind you believe in yourself. Tell yourself "I believe in it®" multiple times a day. 2. Relax before a game by watching a movie, listening to music or reading a book. Try to take your mind off the game. 3. Complete your first 5 passes of the game, make them simple passes. Naturally by having completed your passes, you will feel success, your nerves will settle and you will have a great game because you had a positive start. 4. Be positive when you make a mistake, don't react negative and put your head down. React positive and hustle back on defense. Exercise Player Can Do: Multiple times a day, not just on game days, tell yourself "I believe in it®". This will help you stay positive and decrease your nervousness before a game. If you something at school or in a practice or game goes wrong and it causes you to get nervous or think negative, tell yourself "I believe in it®" and block that negative thought! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are thinking about messing up all the time and that is the reason for your nervousness remind yourself everyone makes mistakes and don't be scared to mess up. If you play scared, your performance will suffer. We all make mistakes, even top pros make mistakes. What matters is what you do afterwards, always react positive. So if you mess up, don't think negative and say in your mind "oh no, I messed up, my teammates and coach are going to yell at me". If you think that then you will probably mess up again and begin a downward negative spiral that will lead to a big loss of confidence and you being subbed out of the game. React positive and hustle back on defense. Almost laugh it off in your mind. We all make mistakes so the sooner you accept that and learn how to react positive to them you will be a much better player I promise you! Bonus Tip! Keep your head up! When you look down, especially after you make a mistake, you naturally have a negative thought in your mind. Don't look down, always keep your head up and think positive!

Advanced Defense ~ Passing Out of Pressure by Online Soccer Academy
 
06:45
Want to take YOUR defending to the NEXT LEVEL? Learn how the BEST defenders in the world KICK START the offense by passing out of pressure. Subscribe - http://bit.ly/Yl0Ful Do you like FREE Soccer Training Videos? If yes, subscribe to our free weekly OSA eNewsletter at http://www.OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. We feature new soccer training videos, youth player spotlights, motivational quotes and much more! Our mission is to inspire athletes that if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work anything in life is possible! ____________________________________________________ This Online Soccer Academy (OSA) video is sponsored by our parent company Believe in it®. Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want. Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ____________________________________________________ Key Point #1 - Check your Shoulder! Prior to receiving a pass and throughout the game regularly check your shoulders. You are looking for space, teammates and opposing attackers. For more tips on how to do that watch our "Speed of Play" videos here - http://bit.ly/PJxB0z Key Point #2 - Drop off or Move to create space between you and the attackers. If an attacker is near you and you need to get open for a pass don't just stand there. Drop to create space. Lots of defenders have the first instinct to run forward but typically there best run to create space is backwards. Plus by dropping backwards they keep their team shape and don't crowd the midfielders' space. Key Point #3 - Take your 1st Touch away from the attacker. For example if the attacker is on your left side take your touch to your right. What does this create? It creates space and... and Time! Each level you move up you have less and less time on the ball so you need to learn how to create more of it. Key Point #4 - Keep it simple and make a pass! Take 1 maybe 2 touches and then make a simple pass. I like to keep it simple in the defensive third and be creative in the attacking third when it's on to. Yes, occasionally hit a long ball over the top, switch the field or chip the ball to a forward but for most part keep the ball moving. Key Point #5 - Don't be to casual! Some defenders are to casual and slow on the ball. I'm not saying go 100 miles per hour and be rushed but don't be to laid back. That is when attackers sneak up on you and mistakes happen. Key Point #6 - Don't be scared to just clear it! Do your best to pass out of the back but yes, sometimes there is just to much pressure from attackers or to high of a chance that your pass will be intercepted. In this case kick the ball as far up the field or out of bounds as you can! When in doubt, kick it out. It's better then being scored on! Exercise Player Can Do: Now for the exercise. Set up all the balls at the top cone. This is where your partner will stand. Then 10 yards away is where your start cone will be. Behind this cone is another cone about 5 yards away. At 45 degree angles in front of you about 25 yards away are two small cone goals. These are your imaginary teammates you will be passing to. We will do two different versions of this exercise: one with pressure and one without. 1st Version without Pressure. You drop from your start cone to the cone behind you checking your shoulders as you drop and your teammate passes you the ball. Then take a touch in the direction you want to pass and make your pass through the cone goals. Try to do this in two touches. Jog back to the start cone and repeat. Repeat reps until you run out of balls. Then do a few sets switching with your partner. 2nd Version with Pressure The exercise will be exactly the same now except that when your teammate passes you the ball they will now close you down like an attacker. They shouldn't try to win the ball, just put pressure on you. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: Some things that could be going wrong. If you are getting the ball as a defender and the attackers are to close to you then you are not moving. Make sure you move or drop to create space. If you don't know what to do with the ball when you get it then you are not checking your shoulders. Work on speed of play regularly by clicking here - http://bit.ly/PJxB0z.

US Womens National Team player Heather O’Reilly is taking part. Are you? __________________________________________ Today we are learning how not to over train. I get asked all the time “how much should I train”. Or I’m told, “I’m training 7 days a week is that enough?” This is an important topic… over training. If you aren’t having fun playing, you might be over training. If you feel tired all the time but you are working hard daily, you might be over training. If come game time you feel slow before the kick off, you might be over training. A lot of players don’t understand over training is an issue. By training too much you can expose yourself to injury risk. Plus you will mentally and physically burn out. What I mean is if you train everyday of the week, 7 days every week, eventually you are going to burn out. Training won’t be as much fun and it will start to feel like a job. Even pros don’t train everyday. Key Points to NOT Overtraining: Key Point #1 - Create a weekly schedule that includes at least 1 day off a week. If your “it” is to make it to the next level and you are hungry to improve then I’d suggest training a maximum of 5-6 days a week, 1-3 hours a day. Let’s say you have practice on Tuesday and Thursday and a game on Saturday this week. I’d create a schedule to train hard on your own Monday and Wednesday. Show up early for Training Tuesday to do your own work before team practice; like 30 minutes prior, do the same for Thursday. Friday take completely off. Or maybe do a light jog, stretch and juggle a bit. Keep it LIGHT! You want to be fresh on game day, not tired. Have your game Saturday and then take Sunday completely off. If you have games Saturday and Sunday take Monday completely off. This is just an example for those of you that want to train hard. NOT every youth player needs to have this full of a training schedule. Only train because you want to, not because you have to. Key Point #2 - Rest is important! Start thinking of rest like part of your job. Tell yourself after a hard session it’s my job to rest up now so I’m fresh and ready to go for tomorrow. Key Point #3 - Take care of your body. Do ice baths and get your legs up regularly to help remove soreness. Key Point #4 - Mix up your schedule and keep training fun. If you do the same schedule every week and the same training every week you will start to get bored. So will your body. This will make you feel burnt out. Keep mixing it up a bit to keep your mind and body excited for the challenge and changes. Some things that could be going wrong. If you feel tired come game day then you are over training. Keep your sessions light the day before a game if you do them or just take a rest day. Bonus Tip: Don’t forget even pros don’t train all day everyday. Everyday, everyday. They take a rest day too.

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want. Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Description: In our previous speed of play videos we taught you how to check one shoulder to increase your speed of play. You can see those videos by clicking here - http://bit.ly/XWZZIA Now we are making it more challenging by checking both shoulders. We check our shoulders before we receive a pass so we can see if a defender is closing us down, where your open teammates are, where the space is or maybe the goalie is out and you can shoot. The best players have 3-4 options on each play and they know those options prior to receiving the ball because they check their shoulders. Make it a habit! Key Points: 1. Angle your body as you check to the ball. Turn sideways so you can see more of the field. If the ball is with the fullback, stand like this. Not this. 2. Before your teammate makes a pass check your shoulder facing your defensive third and look around you. Don't turn your head in a circle, just look as you naturally would when you turn your head. 3. As the ball is coming to you, check your shoulder facing your attacking third. This should be a big look so you see the entire field. Make sure you look up, not down at the ground. 4. Don't wait until the ball is right on top of you to check your shoulders. Do it earlier when the ball is in route so you have time to look at the ball again before it's at your feet. Even the best players still need to look at the ball when it's time to control it. Equipment Needed: A ball, two cones and wall or a fence. If you don't have a fence you can use a partner. Exercise Player Can Do: Pass the ball off the fence. As the ball starts to come back to you check both of your shoulders then either turn and go forward or take a touch and pass it back to the fence and pretend you have a man on situation. For turning and going forward just dribble 10 yards and turn around. Repeat this exercise for a few minutes. Then rest and repeat again. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are taking a bad touch consistently and feel like you can see the ball before it gets to you then you are checking your shoulders to late. Do it earlier. Don't look away from the ball when you take your touch. On the first shoulder check don't turn your head in a circle. You only need to look with a natural turn because when you take a look over your forward shoulder you will see the rest of the field. Bonus Tip! Do this exercise and our other Speed of Play exercises on a regular basis. Make it a habit to check your shoulders and it will greatly increase your level of play. It will feel like the game has slown down for you because you always know what to do prior to getting the ball. Next time you watch a pro game, watch the top pros prior to them receiving a pass and you will see them checking their shoulders. Doesn't matter whether you are 25 making millions playing for Manchester United or 15 playing for West Idaho United, you can check your shoulders and have great speed of play!

This video can be applied to all positions but it's mainly geared for defenders and midfielders. Description: In a game there will be situations where an attacker is dribbling at you and there is 20 yards of space between you and him. Your coach may be shouting step up, the fans maybe shouting step up and win the ball or go to the ball but should you step up in that situation? The answer is usually NO. Here's why. If an attacker is running at you full speed and you are running at full speed at the attacker, it's easier for them to run by you because you are going full speed one way and they are going full speed the other way. The second and most important reason you don't want to step up is because if you step up you are conceding the space behind you. So if you step up, what happens behind you? You leave space for attackers to make runs in behind you and that is not a good thing. Is an attacker at the halfway line, 20 yards ahead of you dangerous? Not really. Is it dangerous if a through ball is played into the space behind you to a forward running in the space you left open because you stepped up? Is that situation dangerous? Yes! Don't concede the space behind you for attackers to run into! Think of the last pro game you watched. When you see an attacking midfielder dribbling at the back line and it's around the middle part of the field are those defenders stepping up to win the ball or are they dropping off? They are dropping off! Equipment Needed: You need a partner, a ball and three cones. If you don't have a partner then simulate this exercise by yourself and imagine doing it in a game. Exercise Player Can Do: Set up a start cone where the attacker is with the ball. The second cone should be 20 yards from the first. This is where the defender stands. The third cone is 20 yards behind the second cone. Attacker dribbles at the defender full speed. The defender continues to drop and looks around for other attackers making runs until he hits the third cone. Repeat for 2 minutes. Then switch with partner. We are trying to simulate a game situation in this exercise, not trying to win the ball. Key Points: 1. Drop off, don't step to attacker and concede space behind you. 2. Jockey backwards keeping your eye on the ball and your body open to the field, you should be at 60 percent pace. Your goal is to close the gap between you and the attacker without conceding the space behind you. If you run to fast backwards, there will be too much space for the defender. 3. Step up when the time is right! You can't back up all the way into your own goal and let the attacker have a free shot. When the attacker is near the 25-30 yard mark away from your goal, it's time to step up and try to win the ball. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If players in a game are constantly running by you it's because you are running at them and diving in. Be sure you are moving backwards as they are running towards you. Now when they take off, you are already moving in that direction. Bonus Tips! The best defenders aren't the biggest and fastest defenders, they are the smartest! Don't get me wrong being big, fast and strong helps but those qualities only take you so far. Take pride in how smart you are at defending and how well you read the game! Remember if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work, anything in life is possible!

How to take an Ice Bath - Online Soccer Academy

Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ This video is geared for athletes 12 years and older. Description: Olympians need to recover quickly between their games and events. There is no time to be sore! Some Olympians will take an ice bath after their performances or practices to remove soreness from their body, help them recover faster and keep their body ready for their next competition. That's #OlympicDedication! Equipment Needed: Bathtub, water and ice. If you don't have a bathtub you can use a clean large trashcan. Key Points: 1. Fill a Bath Tub with cold water so it covers your legs and waist. 2. Dump 1-2 bags worth of ice in the tub. If you have a thermometer try to get the water temperature between 45-50 degrees. That's what I like personally; you can go colder if you want. 3. Sit in the water for 10-15 minutes. After 2 minutes you will go numb and the pain will be tolerable. #OlympicDedication! Don't get out early! 4. Wear a long sleeve shirt or sweatshirt to help keep the top half of your body warm if needed. 5. Bring a magazine or book with you in the tub too to help pass the time. I'd advise against bringing an ipad, just in case you drop it! Ipad's don't need ice baths! Bonus Tip! Wear booties to help keep your toes warm! Most pros wear booties. If you don't have booties wear socks and that will help too. Take ice baths regularly as part of your post work out routines and you will see an increase in your performance because your body will be fresh and ready to go day in and day out! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are still sore the next day after an ice bath then your ice bath wasn't cold enough. Do note that an ice bath doesn't remove all soreness but it helps a lot. If you shaking violently in the tub and your body is in extreme pain for too long then your water is too cold and you need to get out!! Be safe, you don't want to give yourself hypothermia. Don't be a tough guy and try to create below 32-degree temperatures. That's too cold.

I'm a happy customer!" - Greg Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Building confidence is important and here are a few of my suggestions on ways to build confidence. Pros say the game is 90 percent mental. If you don't believe in yourself and are not confident in your abilities the odds are you will fail. Believe in yourself and back up that Believe in it® attitude up with hard work and you will be successful! The same way you can improve your physical game, you can improve your mental game! It just takes practice and consistency. Key Points to Gaining Confidence: 1. Say Believe in it®! Tell yourself, in your mind, multiple times a day "I Believe in it®". Anytime you have a negative thought, say "Believe in it®" and block it. 2. Think positive! Don't think negative anymore. For example don't say "I'm probably not going to play well today because I usually stink". Instead say, "I will play well because I've been practicing and I can't wait to get this game started!". 3. Keep your head up! When you look down at the ground, negative thoughts creep in your mind. Look up with your shoulders back and this will help create positive thoughts in your mind. You will have a look of confidence about you too. 4. Don't let mistakes get to you! Mistakes are going to happen! Get use to it! All you can control when you make a mistake is how you react to it. Do not react negative and put your head down. React positive and hustle back on defense. Bonus Tip! You control your mindset! Don't let your dreams or goals be discouraged by doubters and haters. You control what your mind believes. If you tell it you stink, your mind will believe it. If you tell it you are great, your mind will believe it! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If your confidence isn't improving then you are not following the steps above for a long enough basis. Building confidence is a daily routine and doesn't happen overnight. Do it daily and sooner or later your mindset will become more positive and confident!

How to Win a Soccer Header - Gonzalo Segares of the Chicago Fire
 
02:36
Soccer heading or the soccer header can be done in many ways. Gonzalo Segares of the Chicago Fire is guest coaching in this Online Soccer Academy soccer training video to teach us how to win a soccer header in a one versus one situation. Gonzalo has been a part of the Chicago Fire Soccer team a long time and he is one of Major League Soccer's (MLS) toughest defenders. Description: Part of being a great defender is knowing how to win a header against an attacker. This technique can also be applied to attackers trying to win a header against defenders too. Key Points: Key point #1. Jump First -- You want to be the first to the ball Key point #2. Get your Arms up for protection -- Be careful not to foul though Key Point #3. Be propelled up -- By having your arms up when the attacker jumps they will usually jump into you. If your arms are up, they will jump into your arms, pushing you up and pushing them down. Key Point #4. Be confident you are going to win the header, don't doubt yourself Equipment Needed: Soccer Ball and a Partner. If you don't have a partner just imagine you are defending someone. Exercise Player Can Do: The attacker tosses the ball up in the air. The defender jumps first to win it, the attacker jumps second. Make sure there is a little contact between the players. The defender wins the header and heads the ball away. Repeat 5 times, then switch. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong If you are not getting good power on your header it is probably because you are jumping to early. Make sure you head the ball at your highest part of the jump. You want to jump first, but not to early.

The winger position! This video applies to left and right wing. A good mantra for a winger could be, “I create chances for my teammates and work hard to get up and down the line." Tip #1 Cross early! So many wingers hold onto the ball too long instead of crossing early. Tip #2 Know when to tuck in and when to get wide. Tip #3 Take players on! When you are in your attacking third and it’s just you and a defender take them 1v1. Master 1-3 moves that you will use regularly. Tip #4 Get back on defense! Tip #5 Tip #4 brings me to Tip #5 - Be fit! Add Tempo runs to your fitness training. Tip #6 Sometimes dribble inside instead of always dribbling down the line. By dribbling inside this frees up space for your full back to overlap you. Plus cutting inside creates different passing angles. Tip #7 Be a late runner at the back post! Tip #8 Cut it back! Exercise Player Can Do: For the exercise you will practice watch this OSA training video http://www.OnlineSoccerAcademy.com/soccer-training-videos/attacking/advanced-soccer-crossing-drill What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you keep making bad passes or losing the ball every time you take on the defender then you are forcing it. Bonus Tip: Create going forward, be simple in the back. When you are back defending in your defensive third KEEP IT SIMPLE. DO NOT try to do a fancy creative pass. Just do the high percentage simple pass.

They get a lot of complements on them. Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com Today we are learning how to play center back. This is the central defender on the back line. Usually your central defenders are very tall, fast and strong at the pro level. The best central defenders are smart with the ball, great passers and read the game well. They position themselves to be in the right spot at the right time to win the ball. You DO NOT need to be tall to play this position, but it of course helps. This OSA video is sponsored by Believe in it® Apparel. Wear a soft and comfy Believe in it® shirt to keep you pumped up while you train! Shop at BelieveinitApparel.com and be a Believe in it® Athlete! A center back mantra could be, “I organize my defense, put myself in the right position to win the ball and pass simply out of the back.” Tip #1 Your job as center back is NOT to be the playmaker. When you get the ball make a simple pass to one of your open teammates. Tip #2 Be accurate with your headers and passing out of the back. Tip #3 Position yourself and read the game well. If you see a ball is about to be played over the top behind your right Fullback, your right back is about to get beat for pace by their attacker and there is no offside opportunity then get the first break on the ball and run to where the ball is being kicked. Tip #4 DO NOT commit to half field tackles to early. Typically if an attacker is running at you around half field, then the smart thing to do is drop instead of stepping up to win the tackle in open field. Tip #5 Organize your back line. Tell them to step up, drop, shift left, shift right. Tip #6 Win your aerial battles! These are your 50/50 headers. Tip #7 Stand with your body open to the field. What I mean is if your fullback has the ball, don’t stand like this. Tip #8 When in doubt kick it out!

Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Key Points: 1. Turn your body angled in the direction you are faking to go 2. Bring dominant leg around front of the ball 3. Touch in opposite direction, away from defender, with outside of foot 4. Change Pace Equipment needed: 3 cones and Ball Exercise Player Can Do: Start just practicing the step over standing. Once your are comfortable set up a start cone, a cone which will serve as the defender 10 yards ahead, then a cone about 7 yards ahead at an angle going forward. Dribble slowly to start cone, do the step over, change pace to end cone. Jog back. Rest, Repeat until you are tired. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are messing this move up a lot you are probably going to fast. The step over usually isn't done at full speed so slow down, do the move and then go fast! If the defender is winning the ball from you to often or you are hitting the cone in this exercise make sure you do the move early, don't get to close to the defender because that will increase the chance of them winning the ball from you.

How to Pass A Soccer Ball

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want. Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Passing in soccer is one of the skills of soccer needed to be a great player. Passing in soccer with the inside of your foot involves a lot of technique. Watch the basic and advanced key points in this soccer training video. This OSA soccer training video is geared for soccer players 5-8 years old and their coaches and parents. It of course can be applied to all ages. Key Points: 1. Ankle Locked 2. Passing foot Toe Up not Down (create more surface area on ball) 3. Plant foot facing your Target Exercise Soccer Player Can Do: Pass with your partner focusing on technique. Do this for 1-2 minutes. Coaches look for technique adjustments. Advanced Key Points: 1. Shoulders face target Players tend to step to the ball, turn their body which now means their shoulders are facing away from target and plant foot is now away from the target. We need to fix this. Try holding their shoulders when they pass to force this. It's awkward for players at first to pass with correct technique because there bodies aren't naturally set up to move like this. 2. Power comes from bringing leg back Players tend to push the ball when they are passing. Think of a golfer, do they take their club and hit a ball with out bringing their club back? No, same in soccer. The players leg needs to come back, generating power in the leg swing. 3. Power comes from Thigh, not calve. Lots of players just move their knee down when passing. This is incorrect. The power is in the thigh so the knee down stays the same and it is the thigh that comes back and generates the power. Exercise Soccer Player Can Do: Have player stand behind the ball about one step away from it. Step to the ball, pause, showing leg back, ankle locked, toe up and swing through with power, and pause once they've hit the ball. Then repeat. This will help focus on technique. Then once player is getting more comfortable return to passing normally with out pausing through out the technique. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the pass is going all over the place that typically means their shoulders are not facing the target. Almost 90 percent of the time if a player makes a pass off target if you have them pause they will see their shoulders are facing right where the soccer ball went. If player is not generating enough power it is because their thigh isn't getting back enough. Remember, using your knee down for power is not correct. If their thigh stays in line with their non kicking foot, that is not correct. Make sure they step, legs open up, thigh is back so they can come through, this will generate more power.

Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Tavis is a Sports Dietitian and Nutrition Consultant for the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Hornets. He is co founder of High School Sports Nutrition at http://www.HSSNutrition.com and he's doing a guest video for OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. Today we are learning how to eat a proper pre game meal. Description: A pre game meal is important because it provides the fuel your body will need to perform at the highest level during a game or match. It's similar to filling up your car with fuel prior to a long trip. Eating a balanced meal prior to a game also minimizes the amount of muscle your body will use as fuel. Key Points: 1. Eat 3-4 hours before your game to allow for digestion and absorption. 2. Your best pre-game meals are low in fat and fiber. For example, A grilled Chicken breast with pasta, a slice of whole wheat bread or a serving of corn, and water or 100% juice for hydration. Another option is a Turkey or Ham sandwich on whole wheat bread with fresh fruit, water or 100% juice for hydration. 3. Avoid trying anything new on game day as you don't know how you're body will react to a new food if it's the first time consuming. 4. Trying something new on game day may cause stomach distress making performing very difficult. For example; if you have never had spicy lamb curry before don't try it on game day! What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 1. Eating a high fat meal -- meals high in fat take a long time to digest which will make you feel sluggish. Try avoiding eating Fast Food or Fried Foods before an event. 2. Eating a meal high in fiber -- Too much fiber at a meal could cause excessive stomach discomfort and gas. Avoid carbohydrates like beans, high fiber cereal and vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. 3. Eating too close to a game or match -- you want to eat 3-4 hours before you perform to allow some time for digestion and absorption. Bonus Tip! Stay away from Energy Drinks period, especially before a game. Many of the Energy Drinks available on the market have added stimulants that could cause your heart rate and blood pressure to spike higher than normal. In addition, the high sugar content will lead to a quick spike in blood sugar followed by a crash leading to immediate fatigue.

You can only be entered once so please don't email your coach more then once. ______________________________________________________ Key Points to Dribbling with Your Head Up: Key Point 1. Look down when you take a touch to dribble. Key Point 2. Look up when the ball is in front of you a step or two. This means you can take a step or two before you need to take your next touch. Key Point 3. Glance up with your eyes, don't fling your whole head up. This, not this. Key Point 4. Do not stare at the field. A quick look and your mind will take mental pictures of the field. Key Point 5. It's a balance. When dribbling it will be a balance between looking down at the ball and glancing up to the see the field. Equipment Needed: You need a ball and two cones. Exercise Player Can Do: We have two exercises you can do. First, set up two cones about 15-20 yards apart. Dribble to the first cone and back at a regular jog pace practicing your looking up technique. This is not fitness; focus on your technique, do not focus on going as fast as you can. Rest a few seconds between each rep. After 5 times rest for a minute. Then do 5 more reps and increase your dribbling speed. The second exercise we can do is dribbling laps around the field. Simply dribble your ball around the field at a relaxed pace practicing your looking up technique as you go. While dribbling the length of the field increase your speed for 15 seconds at a time and then slow back down. Do one lap or a few laps, you be the judge. This is good for cardio fitness with the ball too. Sounds tedious but exercises like these greatly improved my touch and vision while dribbling. It will feel like the ball is glued to your foot as you start to master this. Make exercises like these part of your warm up. It's good to practice fundamentals. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you feel like you can't see what's in front of your or you are feeling very rushed then you are not looking up or not looking up high enough. Do not just look up a few feet in front of you, make sure you look up and see the field. Bonus Tip!

Dominant Foot pointed in direction you want to go / Non Dominant Foot Perpendicular to it 2. Squeeze soccer ball tightly between your feet 3. Roll soccer ball up dominant leg and start to lean forward 4. Pop soccer ball with heel of your foot What Soccer Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If the soccer ball is just going up in the air but not over your head you may not be leaning forward when you do it. You may just be standing straight up. The lean is important because it tells your body where you need the ball to go. If the soccer ball is going away from you and not up or over your head you are not rolling the ball up high enough on your dominant foot. Don't rush this move. Be patient, roll the ball up high and then do the heel popping motion. Remember if you Believe in it® and back that up with hard work, anything in life is possible!

I'm a happy customer!" - Greg Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ A slump happens when you are depressed, your confidence is down and you are making a lot of mistakes on the field. Slumps happen to players of all levels including pros. First step to getting over a slump is to recognize you are in one and that you need to do something about it. The Key is to get your confidence back! Key Points: 1. Take a break! If you can, take a few days off from practice and relax. Training on your own 4 hours at a time 7 days a week with low confidence won't help, it will make it worse. Take 2 days off. Go watch a movie, hang out with friends or sit by the pool. The point is to relax your body and take your mind off the game for a bit. You will start to miss the game in a few days, that is the itch to get back out there! 2. Work on your mental game. Watch our "How to be Confident" and "How Not to Be Nervous Before a Game" videos. Those videos will help you a lot. Practice what they say. You work on your physical game a lot, don't forget about your mental game. 3. Don't try to change the past. You made mistakes, you didn't play well... welcome to the club! We have all been there. Focus on what you can control which is playing great and moving forward. 4. Focus on having more fun when you play. Your first session back from a slump, your goal should be to have fun and enjoy being out there again. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you beat yourself up for every mistake you make you will continue you in a slump. We all make mistakes.

They get a lot of complements on them. Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Key Points: 1.) Soft touch on back of ball moving it across your body 2.) Sell the move 3.) Change pace Exercise you can do: Set up four cones. Two to act as a defender and then one to side of each defender about 7 yards away to give you an idea of changing pace. All cones in a straight line. Do the move, accelerate to the end cone, jog back. Repeat 5 times. Then relax and repeat the set as many times as you would like. What you could do wrong: If you find you can't scissor the ball fast enough, you may be taking to big of a touch. Remember that 1st touch across your body is a little one, not a big one. If it is feeling awkward for you and you aren't really getting your shoulders into it, it's probably because your plant foot, non scissoring foot isn't moving out wide when it should be when you take your touch inside. When you touch inside make sure your plant foot steps out wide like you are going to run, this helps sell the fake and frees up room for you to scissor.

Get your body use to how the neck stall feels. Once ready get the ball out and place it on your neck. Stall it for as long as you can, rest and then try again. Once confident and you got it down using your hands try the neck stall from a foot stall or a thigh juggle. Have fun! Bonus exercise! Its called neck stall it. Like you see it, you neck stall it. Lemons, shoes, books, whateves. As long as it’s not a cactus, neck stall it! ----- What’s Wrong: If the ball keeps rolling off your neck after you throw your elbows back you are looking down. If all you see is grass underneath you, you are looking down. Look up! If the ball is rolling down your back you are too straight up. Bend forward at your waist to make your back more in a table top position. ----- Bonus Tip! Have a friend video or take a photo of you from the side. Then analyze your form as compared to mine. That will help you visually see what you may be doing wrong.

How to Shield a Soccer Ball - Online Soccer Academy

Learn how to shield a soccer ball in this Soccer Academy training video. Using your body to shield a soccer ball is an important skill! Click here to share this video on Facebook - http://on.fb.me/ZwHR99 Click here to Subscribe - http://bit.ly/13KwRw7 Key Points: 1. Turn your body sideways between the ball and your defender. Standing sideways gives you better balance. 2. Bend your knees and lean into your defender. Do not stand upright, as you will more easily be knocked off the ball. 3. Use your toe studs and inside and outside of your foot farthest away from your defender to control the ball. 4. Use your arm to feel where your defender is but don't grab them with your hands as that is usually a foul. 5. Spin away from the defender when possible. If you feel the defender come up your left side, spin to your right. Equipment Needed: You need a ball and a partner. If you don't have a partner then just imagine you are playing against a defender. Exercise Player Can Do: Start off in your correct shielding the ball position against your defender. Once ready say go. Your partner, the defender, applies 50% pressure and pretends to try and win it while you shield the ball. Do this for the 30 seconds. Then rest and repeat 5 times and then switch with your partner. Once you feel comfortable with your technique have the defender apply full pressure and see how long you can shield the ball. Do this 5 times and switch with your partner. If you don't have a partner to train with then imagine you are playing against a defender. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are getting knocked off the ball easily then you are off balance and too upright. Turn your body sideways for better balance, bend your knees and lean into the defender. Bonus Tip: Be aggressive and mentally strong when shielding the ball. Don't "Hope" that you keep the ball away from the defender, believe 100% that you own the ball and the defender is not going to win it.

You can do this going to the inside or outside of the soccer ball. Once you can juggle the ball with perfect foot control 10 times it will make it easier to master the Around the World soccer trick. For tips on that style of foot juggling watch our "How to juggle with your feet Advanced" OSA training video. Key Points: 1. Juggle ball with as little spin as possible 2. Juggle ball up and bring leg around it all in one motion (don't juggle it up, wait and then try to get your foot around it) 3. Little bounce of your plant foot (this will help give you the extra leg height you need to get your foot around it in time) 4. Confidence Exercise Player Can Do: Start without the ball and practice the motion of doing around the world. Get your body use to doing this soccer trick. Then get the ball and practice until you master it. I personally think doing around the world to the inside is easier then to outside, so start out going to the inside first. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you can't get your leg around the ball fast enough your timing is probably off. You are probably juggling the ball up, pausing a second and then starting the around the world motion. It's got to be all in one motion. Make sure the ball is off your foot when you do the around the world. Players tend to do the around the world soccer trick when their foot is still touching the ball, this causes the move to look very awkward.

We are indoors today. Our location is Pelican Athletic Club in Mandeville, Louisiana. Description: This will not be an easy thing to practice by yourself but you can do it. It will be more of a mental exercise with in a physical exercise. If you are not as fast as the attackers you are playing against, then you need to be faster mentally to get the edge on them. First we will set up the exercise and then I will give you a few tips on how to be faster mentally and read the game quicker then your opponent. Exercise Player Can Do: Stand in one area, that will be your start cone. Imagine you are standing next to an attacker you are defending. Then pretend there is a midfielder about 30 yards ahead of you. They are going to play a ball over the top into space for their attacker to run onto. That midfielder thinks their attacker is faster then you and they will beat you for speed. We need to stop that from happening. The exercise is, you stand there, on your toes, then as the imaginary attacker is about to pass it, you take off running into space. Run about 20 yards, then come back and repeat. Do this 10 times. Key Points: 1. Stand goal side of your defender. Make sure you are between the defender and the goal. 2. Don't get right on his back. Stand an arms length away with your arm out making contact on the defender. If you are to tight on him, he will turn you and use his body to spin you. 3. When you see that midfielder put their head down to pass the ball over the top you start running in the direction it's going. Get a 1-2 second head start on the forward turning and running. Don't wait for the ball to be kicked and then run. That's when the attacker will be running. You need to start before she does. 4. When you turn and run to chase the ball down, push off your attacker. Don't foul them, but give them a little push. That pushes them backward and you forward. Don't push them like you are trying to start a fight, but a little push off that is disguised in your running technique when you take off. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If in a game an attacker is constantly turning you and beating you to the ball then you are to tight on them. Don't be right up her back. Give her an arms length distance so that attacker feels pressure but it gives you a few steps head start. Also don't be scared to be physical and give a little push off as you take off running. Bonus Tip! Yes, you can improve running speed but at some point you are not going to be able to go faster. Where you can go faster and constantly be improving your speed is in your mind! Think fast in your mind and that will increase the chance of you successfully defending against fast attackers.

How to Come Back from a Soccer Injury -  Online Soccer Academy

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. "We love our shirts! The sizing is accurate and it all washed well! Thank you for the awesome customer service too!" - Della Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Soccer Injuries are part of the game, it's just the way it is. To start if you have an injury make sure you seek out a doctor or physical therapist and have a professional give you advice on how to heal properly. Ask them for a rehabilitation plan. This video is gear towards players that have been cleared by their doctors to start training again. Key Points: 1. Don't rush back! If you have been out for 3 months you will not be as good as you were prior to being injured. Get in the mindset that this is okay and over time you will get back to your old self and better, it just takes time. 2. Build into your training; don't re injure yourself or injure another part of your body. Lots of players on their first day back will train really hard for 3 hours to try and get back as fast as they can and end up re injuring themselves. Your body isn't use to training 3 hours and by over training you could re injure yourself or pull a muscle that hasn't been used in a while. 3. Don't be frustrated! Your touch is going to be off in the beginning. Work on juggling a lot and that will greatly improve your touch. Small improvements daily equal big improvements over time. 4. Don't be scared! It's natural to be scared of re-injuring yourself when you come back from an injury. If your doctor cleared you then you are okay. You can't control getting re injured. What you can control is your mind and how it acts. Be confident. Watch our "How to be Confident" video by clicking here. Exercise Player Can Do: The idea is to create exercises that build over time. So when you are creating your training sessions start with a 30 minute session the first few days, then 45 minutes, then an hour, then an hour and a half. Keep building up as your fitness, body and mind get back to full strength. You control your pace. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are getting depressed and frustrated with your comeback you are in the wrong state of mind. Even the top pros that have been out injured don't come back at the top of their game right away, neither will you. Mentally accept that and then it will make your comeback much easier! Bonus Tip! Have fun and enjoy your football! Be excited that you are playing again and not sitting on the bench injured. Enjoy the process of improving!

Do You Know How to Train on Your Own? ~ Online Soccer Academy
 
04:04
Do you want to take your game to the NEXT LEVEL? Do you have a GOAL you want to ACHIEVE? If yes, then you need to be able to TRAIN on your own!! Subscribe - http://bit.ly/Yl0Ful Do you like FREE Soccer Training Videos? If yes, subscribe to our free weekly OSA eNewsletter at http://www.OnlineSoccerAcademy.com.

They get a lot of complements on them. Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Key Points: 1 - Make time to train! Learn to manage your schedule in this OSA video by clicking here. Between school, which comes first, homework, family and social life it can be time consuming to make time to train. Learn to schedule your sessions at the beginning of every week. 2. Do the best you can with what you have around. Do not think you need nice fields to train on your own. Train in your backyard, at a neighborhood park or wear tennis shoes and practice in your driveway. Winners make it happen. Don't make excuses. Be careful of course and don't be training in the street! 3. Plan your sessions! If you go to the "Videos" page of OnlineSoccerAcademy.com we have 200+ videos to help you. An example of a session for you could be 30 minute Session #6 followed by 10 minutes of chipping technique, 10 minutes of fitness with the ball and 10 minutes of juggling. That would be a solid one hour session. The point is to have a plan ahead of time. Don't go just goof around out there with no agenda when you can plan ahead, be organized and get a great session in. 4. Take 1-2 rest days a week. First of all you should only train because you want to, not because you have too. Not all players have to want to go play in college or go pro but if you have big goals and you want to train a lot then that is great but be careful not to over train. I recommend training on the field no more then 1-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. Even pros take off days, make sure you do too so you don't burn out mentally and physically. This includes your team sessions. So if you have team practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays and games on Saturday then I'd suggest training on your own Monday and Wednesday and take Friday and Sunday off. Or just Sunday. 5. Show up early & stay late at team practices. Arrive early at your team practices and do some juggling and ball work. Stay late and work on your game too. I'm not talking hours early, I'm talking 15-30 minutes early. Don't just get there and stand around shooting from 18 yards out while you wait for your coach to say its time to start. This is not time well spent That's it for this OSA video. Remember small improvements daily equal big improvements over time. Training on your own pays off. I have received thousands of comments from players telling me how much they improved since they started working hard at their game and having the Believe in it® attitude. I look forward to receiving a comment like that from you one day!

Key Point 2 – Keep the ball in front of you so you can stay goal side. Key Point 3 – Force them to shoot near post. Key Point 4 – Don’t over commit! Key Point 5 – Drop off. ----- Exercise to Practice: An exercise to practice on your own. You will need three players, 12 cones and a few balls. Set up a small field like so. One line is the defensive line. The other two are attacking lines. The defender passes the ball to the attackers. Now it’s a 2 versus 1 situation. The attackers try to beat the defender and score in the cone goal. The defender tries to win it and kick it out or score in the other goal. Rotate the defender clockwise after each rep. Go for 5 minutes then rest and repeat once. ----- What’s Wrong: If the ball keeps getting passed behind you for the 2nd attacker to run onto then you are pushed up too high between the two attackers. ----- Bonus Tip! Be patient! It’s the attacker’s job to make a play, not yours.

Key Point 2 – Timing! Key Point 3 – Have a Second of Calmness. Key Point 4 – Keep your eye on the ball. ----- Exercise to Practice: You will need three cones, a few balls and a goal. If you don’t have a goal then use a fence or wall. Be creative, but don’t break any of your parents’ windows! Lay out your three cones like so and start off without the ball. Measure your normal steps to the ball distance from the second cone to the third cone. Then lightly jog up to the second cone and when you get there step to get your plant foot to land next to the third cone and take an imaginary swing of the ball. Once you do this a few reps and feel comfortable remove the second cone and get the ball out. Make a soft pass to the cone, then light jog up and shoot on the run. Your focus is timing and landing your plant foot next to the ball. Don’t worry about shooting for the corners or upper 90’s. Focus on shooting low, hard and straight with power. After a few reps shoot from dribbling. The key is taking that last touch before you strike the ball just a little farther out so you can take a big step to the ball. Don’t have the ball right under you when you try to take a step to shoot. ----- What’s Wrong: The most common error I see with players shooting on the run is their plant foot is behind the ball. ----- Bonus Tip! Enjoy the process of improving!

Mastering the Soccer Scissors! *7 Key Points* by Online Soccer Academy

Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal. It's for Motivated Athletes. All ages, all sports. Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want. Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Key Points to Doing a Scissors: 1. Stand behind the ball and step with your left foot to the side of the ball. 2. Drop your left shoulder and over exaggerate a fake that you are going to run left. 3. Bring your right foot around the inside of the ball to the outside. Make sure to lean your body a bit to the right when you step to the outside of the ball. The goal is to get the defender un balanced by thinking you are going right when you do the scissors. 4. Take a touch with the outside of your left foot at an angle going forward. Your touch should be out in front of you a few steps so you have room to accelerate past the defender. If you take to small of a touch the defender might be able to get a leg out and make a play. 5. Change pace! The best attacking players in the world know how to change pace and speed up after doing a move. Think slow to fast! This will help you create a few steps of space between you and a defender to give you a second or two to make a play. 6. Do not take to big of steps to the sides because it will throw off how fast you can run when changing pace. For example, I see lots of players step to far left and right so when they take their touch to dribble forward they are almost in a split position which means they can't run right away. You want your left foot touch of the ball going forward as part of your running stride. 7. Do the scissors when you are 2-3 steps away from your defender. DO NOT get to close to the defender because while you are doing your scissors all nice and neat like the defender is just plowing into you. This will increase their chances of winning the ball.

CLICK Here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pZglbQjFrQ Exercise Player Can Do: Once you are ready set up your cones like so; a start cone, a defender cone and a cone you will accelerate to at an angle forward up the field from the defender. From the start cone dribble up at slow pace, do your scissors 2-3 steps prior to the defender cone, then change pace and accelerate forward. Do a light jog back and repeat the exercise. Do this until you get tired or feel like you are getting it. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: First, you are doing the scissors but you are to upright and stiff so the defender isn't buying your fake. Remember to drop your shoulder and over exaggerate your fake. Second, you are getting to close to the defender. Time your scissors right and do it 2-3 steps before the defender. Coaching Tip 1 - Be careful of the mirror affect. When you are demonstrating the scissors and you are facing your players you are going to say scissors right but in their minds, from their angle, they will see you scissoring left. My advice is after you show them key points and you are demonstrating the move turn your back to the players. So now when they see you do the scissors right, it's to their right too. Coaching Tip 2 - Get down on one knee and use your hands to move the player's feet. Remember most players are visual learners so if you have a young player that can't understand the scissors drop down on one knee and pick up their feet and scissor them around the ball. Just do one foot at a time so they don't lose their balance and fall over! Bonus Tips! If you are left footed or want to try this left footed the key points are the same, just the opposite for when I say left or right.

They get a lot of complements on them. Thanks!" - Lisa Shop at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com ______________________________________________________ Description: Using a speed ladder regularly will help increase your speed, give you quick feet and improve your footwork for defending. I recommended doing speed ladder drills three times a week as part of your warm up. Key Points: 1. Run on your toes/balls of your feet. 2. Pump your arms fast with good arm technique. 3. Drive your knees up. Don't just move your feet fast and skim over the cones like a ballerina. Equipment Needed: A speed ladder, cones, or sidewalk chalk. Exercise Player Can Do: Before doing speed work make sure you warm up properly. Once warmed up set up a speed ladder that should be about 10 -15 feet in length with an end cone 5 yards from the end of the ladder. Between each cone should be a little more then a shoe size of space. Speed Ladder Exercise 1: In, out, forward. Start from the side. Step in, step in, step out, step forward then the rhythm goes to in, out, forward. Start off slow and walk through this exercise. Once comfortable increase your speed through the ladders, sprint five yards, then light jog back. Real light! Repeat four times. Speed Ladder Exercise 2: Karaoke. Around the back, out, forward. Start from the side, step in, bring your leg around the back of your plant leg, step out, move forward. Then the rhythm is around the back, out, forward. Start slow, then build up. Repeat four times. Speed Ladder Exercise 3: In, In, Split. You will look a bit goofy, but this is a good one. Start from behind the ladder. Step in with one foot, step in with the other foot, then split your legs apart outside of the ladder, then repeat the process on the next ladder. Repeat four times. Speed ladder training usually lasts 5-10 minutes and it is generally done in the earlier part of your training session towards the end of your warm up. Bonus Tip: Speed ladder exercises focus on speed work, not stamina. So don't sprint back after each ladder and then go again quickly. Jog slow and rest on your way back so when it is time to go fast, you are explosive, not tired. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: If you are hitting the cones or struggling to do the speed ladder exercises correctly you are going to fast. Start of slow, even walk if you have too, get comfortable with the exercise and then speed it up when you are ready. Better to do speed ladders correct and slow, then fast and wrong.
