solely on their athleticism. Description: soccer how to play the game
In our previous speed of play videos we taught you how to check one shoulder to increase
your speed play soccer. You can see soccer speed of play videos by clicking here. Now we are making it more challenging by checking
both shoulders. We check our shoulders before we receive a pass so we can see if a defender
is closing us down, where your open teammates are, where the space is or maybe the goalie
is out and you can shoot. The best soccer smart players have 3-4 options
on each play and they know those options prior to receiving the ball because they check their
shoulders. Make it a habit! Key Points:
1. Angle your body as you check to the ball. Turn sideways so you can see more of the field.
If the ball is with the fullback, stand like this. Not this. 2. Before your teammate makes a pass check
your shoulder facing your defensive third and look around you. Don’t turn your head
in a circle, just look as you naturally would when you turn your head. 3. As the ball is coming to you, check your
shoulder facing your attacking third. This should be a big look so you see the entire
field. Make sure you look up, not down at the ground. 4. Don’t wait until the ball is right on
top of you to check your shoulders. Do it earlier when the ball is in route so you have
time to look at the ball again before it’s at your feet. Even the best players still
need to look at the ball when it’s time to control it. Equipment Needed:
A ball, two cones and wall or a fence. If you don’t have a fence you can use a partner. Soccer Exercises Player Can Do:
Pass the ball off the fence. As the ball starts to come back to you check both of your shoulders
then either turn and go forward or take a touch and pass it back to the fence and pretend
you have a man on situation. For turning and going forward just dribble
10 yards and turn around. Repeat this soccer drill for a few minutes.
Then rest and repeat again soccer drills. [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] What Player Could Be Doing Wrong:
If you are taking a bad touch consistently and feel like you can see the ball before
it gets to you then you are checking your shoulders to late. Do it earlier. Don’t
look away from the ball when you take your touch. On the first shoulder check don’t turn your
head in a circle. You only need to look with a natural turn because when you take a look
over your forward shoulder you will see the rest of the field. Bonus Tip!
Do this coaching soccer exercise and our other coaching football Speed of Play exercises
on a regular basis. Make it a habit to check your shoulders and it will greatly increase
how to play faster. It will feel like the game has slown down
for you because you always know what to do prior to getting the ball. Next time you watch a pro game, watch the
top pros prior to them receiving a pass and you will see them checking their shoulders.
Thats how to be a better soccer player. Doesn’t matter whether you are 25 making
millions playing for Manchester United or 15 playing for West Idaho United, you can
check your shoulders and have great speed of play! Hope you enjoyed this Online Soccer Academy
