A demo so the I am facing the kids so they can see the move.
The player steps around the ball with the kicking foot - from right to left or outside-in.
The player then brings his or her feet together.
The player then touches the ball with the kicking foot to the side.
I will bring the kids back in and do another demo and have one or two
of the players that have the move down demo...this becomes a game with
the kids because the players gain confidence and want to demo.
A demo facing away so they can see the move.
Why do the demos like this you ask?
The kids will use the moves two ways, beating a player and getting out of trouble.
send the kids to go out and try the move out to see what the level is?
Once I have an idea of what the level is then we can decide how to
If you don't have someone that can demo get a young player, college kid or former coach.
If the players don't get it break the move down in 3's...
Small sided games:
I like to play a fun small sided games when the players can try out move. I will play the small sided games and reward points if I see the player pull off or try the move.
Coaches, do you want to make soccer fun and motivate your players? Soccer patches are a great motivational tool that can be used for goals, assists, good defending or skills competitions. The kids love patches!!
