Best U12 Youth Soccer Moves | #160-#167 – Kicking/Passing

MOVES #160-#167


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 #160 - #167 – Kicking / Passing
Watch goal scoring highlights from any of the premiere soccer leagues and there is one kick you will see on a regular basis – the volley. 

Chest Trap + Volley = Goal

Thigh Trap + Volley = Goal

Goalkeeper Punch Save + Bouncing Ball + Volley = Goal

The ability to effectively strike a bouncing ball is a huge goal scoring weapon.  Volleys generate significantly more power and velocity than striking a ball off the ground. 

Beyond scoring goals, volleys are useful in many other situations as well. 

If the ball is dangerously bouncing around in front of your own goal – unleash a volley and clear the ball out.  Or use a volley to make a long pass down field to a teammate making a run.

Bottom line – volleys are awesome.
