SOCCER MOVES
"Soccer moves" is a term that includes feints, footwork, dribbling and turning with the ball. Soccer moves are how a soccer player controls the ball and gets past an opponent.

Soccer moves are used by the player with the ball to get past the opponent. The most important soccer moves for all players are "control dribbling", "speed dribbling", the "Pullback turn" (also called a "Drag Back"), the "Hook Turn", the "Cut", the "Change Of Speed Tactic" and the basic body feint (e.g., turn the body to pretend to go left, but instead go right). Select team players should also be taught the Scissors and Cruyff soccer moves by U-13.

The most important soccer moves to teach Recreational players are control dribbling, speed dribbling, shielding and turning with the ball. If you are a Rec coach, don't feel that it is important to spend a lot of time teaching soccer feints (you probably won't have the time), but you can easily teach dribbling, turns, shielding, footwork and "fast feet" by simply playing the SoccerHelp Premium Practice Games such as "Dribble Across A Square".

A great teaching tool for soccer moves is the Super Soccer Skills video or DVD. Super Soccer Skills is unique because a player can watch it at home on television while practicing the footwork and moves in front of the TV. bola tangkas online.

If you decide to teach any of the advanced feints, take it very slowly, one at a time and don't expect Rec players younger than U-12 to learn feints (it can be very confusing to be exposed to too many feints at once). Good players will be good dribblers and will have good ball control, but even the best players in the world usually only have one great feint. If a child is interested in feints, expose them to several, but encourage them to pick one & become good at it.
