THE FIRST TOUCH IS THE SWEETEST: Developing close control
Excellent close control with a tight first touch is a prerequisite for playing good soccer. This session works on helping to develop a the quality close control that enables a player to play quickly and accurately.
PART 1 THE WARM UP:
Players are in groups of 4 with 2 balls between the 4
1 player is working the other 3 are servers
2 servers hold the ball and one will be free and not have a ball
One server throws into the working player to control and volley to the free player
Control and pass should be 2 touch
The servers keep throwing one at a time for the working player to find the free player
All serving players should keep on the move forcing the working player to adjust positions and keep observing where the free player is.
