Soccer / Ball Control

The Spin Turn

In teaching this ball control soccer skill, Brandi's brother Chad explains how to protect the soccer ball by getting stronger on it with your body, turning, and then exploding into the newly created space.

Using cones setup diagonally from each other, soccer players attack each cone with a ball, then stop the ball at the cone. While stopping the soccer ball, they use their body to protect the ball and turn it toward the next cone. They then accelerate in that direction. Each player in line goes once the player in front of them is at least a cone ahead.
