Soccer One To One drills
Just like in drill 3 the coach stands 2 or 3 metres away and throws the ball anywhere between ground and thigh height calling out "eye on the ball" as it is thrown but this time they walk backwards half a metre after each one to increase the distance up to around 7 or 8 metres.
As soon as the player contacts and controls the ball the coach calls "head up" to encourage the player to be aware of their surroundings as soon as the ball is controlled but not before. The player then passes the ball gently straight back the the coach to complete the drill. The coach tells them to take their time passing it back, eye on the ball.
Do 10 on the good leg then 10 on the not so good leg. When the player can do 10 perfect controls in a row on each leg they have mastered this lesson.
