Key Point 2 – Feet Shoulder Width Apart. Key Point 3 – Have a Slight Bend in your Knees. Key Point 4 - Lean Back Slightly. Key Point 5 – Receive the Ball Right Below your Clavicle Bone. 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. ----- What’s Wrong: If the ball is going up too high or behind you when you trap it then you are leaning too far back. ----- Bonus Tip! 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 ?

Great informational video. This is the first video that I've seen with Coach Emily. I like her enthusiasm as I feel that it will make my daughter enjoy watching the video. Keep up the good work!
chris rednek (2 years ago)
Sometimes when I chest a ball, I get the wind knocked out of me. Is that supposed to happen or am I doing something wrong?
Andrea Quintana (1 year ago)
chedrosolo _ Are you jumping in? Because if you wait for it, it will knock you out, so don't wait for it. Hope I helped :)
winner yeahmate (2 years ago)
You need to absorb the chested ball a bit higher, slightly above the chest. That's consistent with what Emily said.

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!
leahg180 (2 years ago)
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.

PyroDraco Aureus (2 years ago)
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)?

Hey Jared love your videos! which teams did you play on during your pro years?
Brody Watson (2 years ago)
+Online Soccer Academy He played like 2 games in the MLS.
Online Soccer Academy (2 years ago)
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
Online Soccer Academy (2 years ago)
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

Key point 8 - Turn around and use your chest. :) - Coach Emily

+Online Soccer Academy Thank You Coach Hope to see freestyle football in OSA soon

That is a whole different video. Maybe one day we can make it. In short angle your chest up to the sky more so when the ball hits you it goes up towards your head. - Coach Emily

Mouhamed Lamine Bah (2 years ago)
It works perfectly as it is.
Online Soccer Academy (2 years ago)
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
