Kicking/Passing – 9 | 1st Touch - 10 | Dribbling – 6 | Youth Soccer



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.

Kicking / Passing
The Inside Foot Ground Kick/Pass is a foundational move and should be mastered at an early age.  It involves using the inside foot to kick the ball along the ground in a specific direction.  This kick offers a high degree of control if executed correctly which is why it is commonly used to pass the ball to a teammate.  This kick demands striking through the center/top of the ball, keeping your shoulders over the ball, and a follow through that stays parallel with the ground.     

1st Touch
A Forward Touch always means moving the ball towards the goal.  If possible, your 1st Touch of the ball should move the ball towards the opponent’s goal.  Your first thought should be to attack, to advance the ball, to put pressure on the defense. 

An Inside Foot Angle Forward Touch means the ball is approaching you at an angle and you use your 1st Touch to send the ball towards your opponent’s goal.  This is a more complicated touch because you must angle your receiving foot properly to get the ball to move in the direction you want it to. 

Chop Dribbling involves quick, choppy steps and touching the ball with every step.  This is the most controlled type of dribbling and is usually utilized in a crowded area of the field while still allowing you to move the ball forward.

Controlled Dribbling involves moving the ball down the field as quickly as possible while using the same foot to touch the ball every stride.  The part of the foot that touches the ball – laces, inside foot, outside foot – is irrelevant.  The idea is to get the same foot on the ball in whatever way is most appropriate.  Controlled Dribbling provides a nice balance of speed and control.
