Soccer Skills    


When teaching youngsters the main soccer skills are dribbling, passing, receiving / control and shooting. These can be taught in isolation as techniques then developed as skills with the advent of pressure on the player practicing the skill. In a nutshell this is the key approach. Increase the pressure to develop and enhance the skill.

Heading is introduced as a more advanced skill for older players (there are several different types of heading technique) and then of course there is the very specialist position of goalkeeping.

All of these skills need to be developed over time in the hope players then become proficient performing them in real game situations.


Of course I have diluted into two or three sentences concepts that people write books about - maybe I will one day!


As always with youth players keep it fun if they enjoy it they come back for more!

Cheerio for now.
