Moves - 3 | Youth Soccer Drills & Skills



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.

There are three different categories of soccer moves.

Change of Direction moves are designed to move you away from pressure and into open areas of the field.  Sudden changes of direction will make you unpredictable, difficult to defend, and allow you to create space for yourself.  Changing direction also helps find new openings and change your options. 

Stop & Start moves are designed to help you lose an opponent who is applying heavy pressure.  Stop and Start moves allow you to freeze your opponent for just an instant, allowing you to accelerate into the space where you want to move.  These moves allow you to continue moving in the same direction.  They do not demand that you stop and move in a different direction like Change of Direction moves do. 

Fake & Feint moves are designed to help you beat an opponent who is facing you.  Most of these moves are built around misdirection.  You move your body one way while the ball moves another way.  An opponent typically follows your body rather than the ball, giving you the space you need to move around them. 

One move I want to comment on below is The “V”.  There are four different versions of The “V” and all four are demonstrated at the same time in the Soccer University DVD series.  It can be confusing if you aren’t aware of the different versions of this move.  The most effective versions of The “V” involves using one foot instead of two. 

A couple other moves to note are the Double Pull Back and the Drag Push.  Make Your Move by Coerver Coaching calls the Double Pull Back the Double Step On.  Soccer University calls the Drag Push the Flim Flam.
