CUSTOM INDOOR TRAINING SESSION
1v1 Soccer videos are not designed to teach proper technique.
Instead, take advantage of the resources linked at the end of this post. These resources are the best of what is out there. These resources contain professional trainers and skilled players correctly demonstrating (often in slow-motion) the techniques you want to learn.
The purpose of 1v1 Soccer is to show parents how to modify effective soccer instructional resources for home use. By applying these resources in the myriad of different ways demonstrated on this site, you can help your child win the 1v1 soccer battle.
A primary goal for an advanced soccer player should be developing the ability to take a ball out of the air and bring it down to the ground as quickly as possible. Soccer is best played on the ground - this is where you have the most control and where you can move the fastest with the ball.
Effectively dealing with a ball in the air has two components. First, you want to gain control of the ball. Second, you want to bring it to the ground.
The process of bring the ball to the ground is called a Squish.
A Sole Close Distance Squish involves using sole of your foot to bring a bouncing ball to the ground.
An Shin Close Distance Squish involves using your shin to bring a bouncing ball to the ground.
An Inside Foot Close Distance Squish involves using your inside foot to bring a bouncing ball to the ground.
An Outside Foot Close Distance Squish involves using your outside foot to bring a bouncing ball to the ground.
A Body Close Distance Squish involves using your body to bring a bouncing ball to the ground.
The technique needed to effectively execute an Inside/Outside Foot, Sole, Shin, or Body Squish is difficult to learn. Most coaches, trainers, academies do not teach these techniques and those that do often teach them incorrectly.
The only training resource I am aware of which properly teaches how to Squish a soccer ball is the Soccer University DVD’s (bottom of page).
The ability to control air balls and bouncing balls is a huge advantage. These techniques are worth investing the time to master.
