What I love about my U9s team is that when I come out to warm them up before a match they are all ready and sitting there waiting for me... with a cheer they all descend on the bag of training balls and start warming themselves up. MORE
Soccer warm up for left and right foot passing
Encourage your young soccer (football) players to practise their passing skills using both their left and right foot. This soccer warm-up drill is a good one to use just before a match.
Before a match kicks off, I get my young soccer players to pair up and pass the ball to each other. What I’m looking for in this soccer drill is to see them passing the ball with each foot.
Being able to use either foot to pass well is not something that comes naturally to most young players, but if you warm them up so they are using both feet, the chances are that when called on in the match to clear the ball or score a goal with their weaker foot they’ll do it.
