We’ve all heard the question—usually right in the middle of our carefully planned technique exercises: “When do we get to play?” So why not grant your players’ wish before they even ask, by using games to train technique? If it doesn’t work, you can always go back to the exercises later. In this article, Klaus Pabst shows you how, with sample activities for each of the basic soccer techniques: dribbling, passing, shooting, and receiving and controlling the ball.
Dear SIS readers,
We hear it every weekend at halftime: “We need to be faster!” But is that really so easy? The bottom line is that all players have to be tuned in to the game and extremely focused. It really is a very complex task and requires a lot of practice in tight spaces. To learn more, check out Peter Hyballa and Rüdiger Böhm’s article on “Playing faster soccer” in this month’s issue.
