Best U8 Youth Soccer Moves | #23-#29 – Kicking/Passing



The best thing a developing soccer player can do is develop dominant ball skills needed to master the 1v1 (one verses one) game.

This means getting thousands of touches on the ball to develop deep comfort and control with all parts of the body and feet.  This also means mastering specific skills to keep the ball away from an opponent, move the ball around an opponent, and take the ball away from an opponent.  As a player grows up, dominant ball skills provide the best foundation for developing dominant passing skills.

Younger players can work through each move and skip those which are too difficult.  Older players can work through each move and spend time mastering those which are weak or missing from their game.

Moves #23 - #29 – Kicking / Passing
All of these moves involve kicking the ball with the Inside Foot.  These are the easiest kicks to learn, can generate considerable power if necessary, provide maximum control, and create the ability to kick a moving ball incoming from various angles. 

An added benefit is that a many of these kicks are also finishing moves.  On the whole, spending time working on finishing moves is not an effective use of time in youth soccer, but these moves are the exception.  Mastering all of these kicks will provide a great foundation for becoming a skilled goal scorer.
