Soccer Skills Challenge
This is for those looking to add a touch of class to their game. This workout can be done alone and I've done it myself playing professionally several times.
1. Inside of Feet - Touch the ball with the inside of your feet back and forth 20 times (10 each leg). When you progress with it and get more comfortable you should then try and not look at the ball then eventually with your eyes closed.
2. Triangle Touch - Ball starts in front of you, place your foot on it, roll it back towards you and pass it over to the next leg then back to the starting position. The ball will travel making a triangle. Switch feet after done 10 each side.
3. Pull a 'V' - Ball starts in front of you and to the left. Put your right foot on it, drag it back towards you and open up the other way. Making a 'V' pattern with the ball. then switch feet and go the opposite direction.
4. Backwards Ball Roll - Simple rolling the ball backwards as you're back pedaling. Switching feet constantly.
5. Ball Roll - Rolling ball to the side 10 times then switching feet and doing it again.
6. Toe touches - the ball does not move. switch feet with the balls of your feet touching the ball then switching feet.
7. Juggling - simply keep the ball in the air for at least 20 touches and resume to the next foot skill, you can even do this in between any or all of the drills.
8. One foot inside outside - Stand on one foot and with the other foot touch the ball inside and outside with the same foot only over and over again for 20 seconds. Then switch feet.
9. Inside outside - start the ball beside the outside of your right foot. Touch it with the outside of your right foot then inside of your right foot then over to the outside of the left and then inside of left. Drill should be done quickly and in sync. If you're confused remember the ball should be touching your feet as follows, outside inside switch feet outside inside constantly.
10. Scissors - Just do scissors over the ball, touch the ball to one side after 3, stop the ball and repeat drill.
