Soccer Agility Ladder Drills

Hey, it's coach Ben from online soccer skills and today I wanted to welcome you to part one of our speed and agility ladder series.

Now, in today's video, we're going to be focusing on our first touch and our passing. And I want you to remember when you watch these drills, you could have a ladder or you could use cones. You don't have to have a ladder to do this but you need to have one soccer ball and a partner. And the reason why I want you to work on this is because it's going to help you stay on your toes. It's going to help you be faster when you get to the game and when you go through these drills, I want you to go at game speed. I want you to go as fast as possible and I want you to concentrate on your first touch and your passing. So we're going to show you three different drills that you can plug straight into your own game and practice this on your own.
First Drill Alright, so the first drill that we're get…

The Best Coach for Ball Skills

"Coach, what is the best way for my child to improve their ball skills and footwork?"

This is the question that I have heard and been asked repeatedly over the past 20+ years of coaching soccer.

The answer (at least the one that I give) is a very simple one: Touches on the ball = Better ball skills.

There is no better coach in the world, than the ball.

So, when I am coaching soccer players that need to improve their ball skills (which is most of them), I am constantly looking at ways to get them the most touches on the ball.  Putting these players in situations where they are getting hundreds of touches on the ball versus getting double digit touches on the ball.

One of the best tools that I use to get hundreds of touches on the ball is soccer tennis.

There is nothing better to me than seeing the players' faces light up and hear their excitement when they see me pull out the soccer tennis net!

Soccer players love paying soccer tennis.

We can do so much with a soccer ten…

Triangle Soccer Passing Drill

Watch this video as Coach Ben will show you how to do a triangle soccer passing drill. You will need three soccer cones and a partner in order to perform this passing drill.

Hey guys it's coach Ben, in today's video I'm going to show you a great drill that's going to help you improve your passing accuracy as well as your involvement in the game. Now, a lot of times I see players, when they're looking to connect five or ten yard passes, they play lazy balls. So, what I want you to do in this drill is work on your movement. So, you're working on your movement off the ball and as well as your accuracy when you pass it. So, in this drill, you just need three cones. You're going to set up a small triangle and I'm going to walk through exactly how to do this drill.

As you can see here I set up a small triangle and this drill. I'm going to be the player working, so I'm going to be right here, just next to this back cone…

Kick Your Training Up a Notch with FAST!

Over the past five years, I have really noticed that coaches are bringing out all the "bells and whistles" in their training sessions. Practice fields seem to be littered with anything colorful to attract the attention of players and parents.

Bright colors and new products seem to be the trend.


It's simple...the colors and new coaching tools help the players become even more interested in the training session.

So, if you are one of those coaches that is constantly adding something new to your training, then look no further than the Soccer Innovations Field Awareness Soccer Training (FAST) system.

This colorful new technology will take your training sessions to a new level to say the least.

A couple of weeks ago, I showed up early to a personal training session that was scheduled with a 13 year-old girl. I set up a variety of tools to prepare for the training session. Then I pulled out the FAST system and set it up.

Once the young girl and her parents arrived, you c…

3 Easy Freestyle Soccer Tricks For Beginners

Courtesy of: Become Elite

Matt Sheldon from Become Elite will show you three freestyle moves for beginners.

1. Thigh Catch to Hamstring Stall The first move I'm going to show you is just the Thigh Catch to Hamstring Stall

On the thigh catch what you're going to do is when you're juggling it, that last juggle you're going to pop it up about knee height maybe a little bit higher and towards you. Lean forward with your knees. Point them outwards and then just squeeze them together and catch the ball.

Now, this is where it gets kind of tricky. After you have the ball in between your knees, what you're going to do is take one of your legs and kind of easily roll it over in front of the other leg and they're going to basically transition that ball to the back part of your hamstring and then once that ball is pushed back there you're going to bring your heel up and squeeze.

Now, this takes some getting used to and will definitely take some practice but once you g…
