Fast skills and best drills U10,U11,U12,U13,U14 helps the youth players build a foundation of

simple skills to use in game play. Setting up your base moves and working on your footwork is

something you can do everyday by yourself. Learning to move the ball back n forth and side to side

is the base moves needed to learn as you get more feel and touch for the ball. Small touches and

movements can make all the difference when trying to keep defenders on their heels and guessing

where you are going. Learn to touch the ball side to side and use a pull back move the get the

defenders leaning the wrong way. Turn your back to the defender and shield the ball to buy

some time for other player support to gather, but many times you may just have to move the

away from pressure and move into a clear space as you buy time to regroup. Cutting the ball

hard and using the outside part of your foot is always a great skill to master, as you always need

to learn how to keep the head up to view the field. Another tip is the always move towards a ball played

to you, if you wait for a ball to get to you, 70% of the time a defender will pick it off, and just moving

to the ball cuts off that half of a second of a defender making that play. Watch these videos for some

Football Facts And Soccer Terms

Lothar Matthaus Most World Cup Apperences     Football facts and soccer terms are fun for coaches to throw around when

talking about this beautiful game. Because in the United States this game is

called Soccer, but everywhere else in the world it’s known as Football,

slightly confusing for most Americans. But since we didn’t invent it,

the terms of the game tend to confuse the new participant.

What’s the touch line?  Who gets the corner kick?  Is a goal kick like a penalty kick? Why is one

player offsides when the other one isn’t? Some say the game was first recorded being played in

Cuju and England in the 1800’s were playing it in the neighborhoods. Also the first known league

was set up in England in 1888, and the FIFA organization we know today was founded in 1904 in

Paris. Acouple of great fun articles about soccer terms and some football facts come from this

10 Soccer Things by Paste Magazine and this neat Brandon Gaille article about 44 Catchy

Soccer Slogans. We laughed at some of these slogans that you might see in Jr. High and High

School locker rooms, but they do make it fun, here 10 of them.

Bustin’ ours to kick yours.
Can’t should never be in an athletes vocabulary.
Don’t go through life without goals.
Eat, Sleep, Play Soccer.
Everyone should have a goal to conquer. I believe I’ll conquer yours.
For the love of the Game.
Heading to the top.
If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me.
If winning isn’t everything, why do they keep score?
If you don’t got guts don’t play the game.
If you’re not playing with all your heart, someone else is, and when you meet her, she’ll win.

Many great sites on the web have soccer terms, here three that we found with good info and easy to search

Best soccer drills U8,U9,U10, And U11 for faster skills are all over the internet. Sometimes mixing and

matching two drills together helps get more out of the time put into the drill. Many times coaches have

seen a drill, and each day through out a week of practice, have added one more skill to the end of a drill

to keep pushing the player to react to what is put in front of them. Soccer is a game of consent reaction

to how different each play develops, there is no call in a play from the side lines, stop for a time out,

these players have to always adjusting to what is put before them. Mixing dribbling and passing drills

with shooting drills always made sense, but it sometimes it’s remembering maybe to put a defensive

player into the drill maybe playing at half speed just to give some resistance but letting the offensive

player to hone their skills sets in live competitive drill play. Here are a couple ideas on dribbling ,

passing drill ideas, and not to forget the goalies for U10 level.

High Scoring Soccer And 3 Youth Soccer Drills

High scoring soccer and 3 youth soccer drills that will help put the ball in the net.

Seeing the end result after years of practice is the exactly what pros go through to be good at soccer.

Helpful youth soccer drills will create better players, and these videos of high scoring soccer will be

everyday occurrence as the pros get better here in the US. Passing the ball through defenders into

space for your team mate to run onto it is very important to learn. Also keep your crossing the ball

into the box area between the 6 yd line and the 14 yd spot is probably the most dangerous area to

defend against. A good cut back from when you dribble to the end line should be passed back towards

the 4 yrd/ 5yd area for an easy tap-in goal when attacking the end line. Spacing with your other offensive

players is critical when someone shoots at goal, because many deflections of defenders can end up in

front of the goal, and having everyone in one spot leaves an easy goal shot as a missed chance. Brad

Davis of the Houston Dynamo is a great example of learning how to chip the ball with pace in a very

short distance. Also Brad puts the ball at the 6 yd area for his teammate to head it home, a great

example of touch on the chip and spacing of all the Dynamo players on the goal scored. Again, many

youth drills work on just touching the ball lightly to get a feel of how the ball reacts. Watch these videos

for some high scoring soccer and 3 youth soccer drills that can help get them their next goal. [Read more…]

Real Salt Lake vs Portland

 

 

 

 

 

Three best shooting drills for U10 to U16 knowing all positional field players will be called upon in

sometime in a game to shoot on goal, hoping to at least keep the ball on frame(goal). The key tips

are below and links to the drills. Number one, keep your knee over the ball as you strike the shot, this

will help in shooting the ball over the goal. Number two, don’t over power the ball, the idea is to hit it

clean and straight, too much power means over the bar. Number three, try not the lean back, keep your

body straight or slightly over the ball will keep it down for the most part. Remember many times a shot

is many times just a hard pass if you can picture that in your mind as you are preparing for the shot.

Also, angles are more important than power and speed of the ball, power comes later as you get better

technique. Final tip, a ball on goal(target) has a chance to score, it’s better to hit the ball slightly softer

to insure a chance to score. MLS Cup is coming soon, watch for some great shooting to win a championship, that will be you one day. [Read more…]

Faster Soccer Skills For More Goals

Soccer Skills

 

 

 

 

 

Faster soccer skills for more goals and balanced dribbling techniques are a one two punch in coaching.

Many coaches look for drills that work on touch of the player in dribbling, trapping, and passing during

game situations. The first touch is so important to control into an area you can make your next move.

Setting the ball up off that first touch can set up a pass or a shot, let alone dribbling into space to

advance the play. Also seeing open team-mates as you receive the ball, gives you a chance to deflect

the ball towards them giving your team-mate a better chance to shoot or settle the ball down for

control. As you get the ball in front of the net, the 6 yard line box is so dangerous for one touch shots

or deflections to your team-mates. Watch as you see these pro’s put the ball into the 6 yard line box

and how many goals are scored with these quick crosses. Another key element you will see in these

videos, is the “never give up attitude” of these pros. You will see faster soccer skills for more goals

as these pros use all these techniques in these links above and MLS videos. [Read more…]

Goalie And Defensive Teamwork For U10,U11,U12,U14,U16

Real Salt Lake vs FC Dallas 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goalie and defensive teamwork for U10,U11,U12,U14,U16, these MLS matches are a great source of

watching teamwork from the goalie to the back four defensive players. Jimmy Nielsen the Sporting KC

goal keeper puts on an absolute clinic vs. the club from Toronto FC. This game shows why Nielsen is

the MLS leader of career goals against avg. , and why shut outs are not uncommon in Sporting KC

matches. Another great goal keeper to watch is Jeff Attinella of Real Salt Lake, quietly they have

put up some great shut outs and the best points total for the Western Division of the MLS so far in

2013. New York Red Bulls are clicking on all cylinders in the Eastern Division and the goal keeper

Luis Robles is the main reason why the defense is making a move in this hot July weather, putting

this team in the top 3 of battle for the east. The defensive four in front of these keepers are limiting

the quality of many shots, covering up the angles and clearing the ball from danger quickly. One keeper

who had a great game, but his defensive four in front of him let him down would be Toronto FC

Joe Bendik, who kept TFC in the Sporting KC match with many quality saves, but the lack of defensive

marking allowed too many easy chances through. Toronto in this match would be a bad example

for goalie and defensive teamwork for U10,U11,U12,U14,U16 players. [Read more…]
