Key Point 1 – Arms in, not out.
Key Point 2 – Feet Shoulder Width Apart.
Key Point 3 – Have a Slight Bend in your Knees.

Key Point 6 – Cushion or Pop the Ball
Key Point 7 – Control the Ball One to Two Feet ahead of you.
Exercise to Practice:
An exercise to practice is chest trapping with a partner. You will need a partner and a ball.
Have your partner stand a few feet away with the ball in their hands. They toss it to you with two hands and underhand service. You control it on your chest and pass it back on the ground or out of the air depending on your skill level. Repeat this for one minute and then switch. Do two sets each.
If the ball is going up too high or behind you when you trap it then you are leaning too far back.
Don’t be scared when the ball hits you!
Thanks Coach Emily. I enjoyed your training video. Although I have played soccer for a long time it is one of the areas I need to develop. Can you provide some tips if you don't have a training partner. Perhaps using a wall or tossing the ball up ?
I just discovered this station near the end of my middle school girl's soccer season. Wish I had found it sooner. I had never coached this age group before and plan to make use of it for next year. Thanks for all the great tips.
Great to see a female football player on here. I use this channel a lot to help train my girls team I coach and my daughter. Now I can say "if she can do it so can you!" lol keep up the good work your drills have helped my girls team a lot!
Great video, Coach Emily. I remember I was very skeptical that chesting the ball would not hurt when my male coach showed it to me in practice. I cannot overstate the importance of having a female coach for female soccer players, especially those in middle school. One of the main reasons I became a volunteer coach, and I'm loving it.
Little dap! Sup Jared :) Great tutorial! My ability to chest the ball has improved so much in a matter of seconds thanks to this! I have one question When attacking 1v1, is it better to FIRST sprint right at the defender, make a move, and keep sprinting past him(so essentially sprinting the whole way), or is it better to FIRST approach the defender at a medium/slow place, make a move, and then accelerate/sprint past him/her(so essentially an attacker changes pace when dribbling)?
I always true to bounce the ball to awal and try to control it , i can do it perfect ly AS if i mastered it. But once someone play me a long ball in a real match i can never control the ball like i ussualy did in training can you plsss help ?! (I would appreciate it more than anything else)
You are correct Brody. Jared did play for the New Orleans Jesters when he was in college. That team plays in the PDL which stands for Premier Development league. It's a summer league for college players; it's not pro. - Coach Emily
Hi Chris, this is Coach Emily. Glad you love the OSA videos! I'm a new coach with OSA and we have more OSA coaches coming out in the future. Jared played at the Chicago Fire, Vancouver Whitecaps and the Puerto Rico Islanders prior to getting hurt. Thanks! - Coach Emily
There is no Jerry. There is a Jared. I'm guessing you are referring to Jared Montz. I'm a new OSA coach, we have more OSA coaches coming in the future too. Coach Jared will still be making videos but he is not the only OSA coach anymore. - Coach Emily
please coach Jared or emily answer my question it can change my way of training do y'all recommend a player. train different aspects in there game everyday or do everything in the same day please answer
Thanks John! Little dap to you! We release a new OSA video every other Monday. In the future we may do more in the schedule, but for now that is our schedule. Sorry. We have 200+ videos to watch though. That should keep you busy! :) - Coach Emily
Awww! I'm sorry I can't be there to coach you in person, but I'm glad to be one of your OSA Coaches! We have lots of videos that teach you how to kick properly; passing, shooting, chipping, etc. Watch them at http://www.OnlineSoccerAcademy.com . Good luck! - Coach Emily
Thanks for the thanks! We appreciate your feedback. Coach Jared specifically decided not to have background music while our coaches speak. He thinks it can be more of a distraction while the key points are being made. We get lots of feedback from parents and coaches saying how much their kids pay attention to the videos and learn a lot. We decided to take the approach of less is more. For 8 years now it's been working well. Having said that we greatly appreciate your suggestion. I just wanted to give you a reply and reason why. Thank you though! - Coach Emily
Hi Jonathan, this is Coach Emily. Myself and most girls don't have problems chesting the ball. We just hit it higher up on our chest like I suggest in the video. Now you don't need to wonder. Hope you liked the video! - Coach Emily
This is just the video i needed, thanks OSA. Its so hard to get girls to do chest traps ,but with Emily's attitude and personality Itll show them them that girls can chest trap and have fun doing it. Thanks cant wait for more videos with Coach Emily ,little dap.
This is Coach Jared. PLEASE leave a comment with respect and class. I've had to delete a few comments due to not polite things being said. I always speak highly of OSA fans, please keep it classy in the comments and show why I speak so highly of yall. Thank you! - Coach Jared
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
