Coaching Corner

Improving first touch and ball skills

Aim - To improve players confidence with the ball, concentration and 1st touch. This makes for a fun session and improves player communication.

Key Points

  1. 1. Ensure players are moving around and not stationary. Make sure they are calling for the ball.
  2. 2. Emphasise the importance of the first touch.
  3. 3. Emphasise the importance of concentration as the ball should not hit the floor if players are fully concentrated.
  4. 4. Ensure the pass off to the team mate has some height as this will give player time to adjust and control the ball.
