Focus Points

Passing Sessions

Passing is part of maintaining possession, so keeping the ball is the key to passing.  Important aspects of successful passing are:

  • TECHNIQUE - Quality and Consistency
  • JUDGEMENT - When and why you pass
  • VISION - Where to play the ball

2 Touch is important because:

  • 1st touch controls the ball to ensure the best chance of a good pass
  • Direction of 1st touch signals where the pass is likely to go
  • Gives more time to help make a better decision and pass

Key points:

  • Good 1st touch so the ball is out of your feet
  • Non-kicking foot in line with the ball, pointing at the target, knee bent
  • Kicking foot should have the toe up making a V to lock ankle
  • The area from the bottom of your big toe to the back of your heel make contact with the ball
  • Follow through so that the target can see the bottom of your shoe.
Dribbling Sessions

Dribbling is one of the actions that happens the most often in the game and therefore a lot of focus should be put on building their confidence and success in this area.

Key points:

  • Good 1st touch so the ball is out of your feet
  • Non-kicking foot in line with the ball, pointing at the target, knee bent
  • Kicking foot should have the toe up making a V to lock ankle
  • The area from the bottom of your big toe to the back of your heel make contact with the ball
  • Follow through so that the target can see the bottom of your shoe.
Receiving Sessions

The first touch is the most important touch in maintaining possession.  It sets you up for the next touch which could be a dribble, pass or shot.

Key Points (receiving on the ground):

  • Keep your eye on the ball
  • Receive the ball away from the pressure (defender)
  • Lock ankle: toe is up, knee is bent, leg makes a check mark
  • Don’t stop the ball!!!  Prepare it for the next action: dribble, pass, shot, or to play away from pressure

Key Points (receiving in the air):

  • Eye on the ball to read the flight, speed and direction of the ball
  • What part of the body are you going to use? Foot, thigh, or chest?
  • Get in line with the path of the ball
  • Cushion ball with the body part presented to slow it down and preparing for the next touch
