First Mobile Sports : Soccer Ball Control

Ball control (ball reception) in the air or on the ground.

This is the ability of the player to keep the ball within playing distance.

Selection:

  • Foot (inside and outside)
  • Chest
  • Thigh
  • Head

Objectives

  • To improve the technique of controlling the ball, emphasizing that the controlling part of the body should be relaxed and gauging movements of both the ball and the body.
  • To practice reception of low balls into your stride before making passes. Develop ball control, progressing from the foot, thigh, chest and head on the technical line of action(the I-tech line of action).

Passes used in conjunction with other players

  • Through Pass.
  • Wall Pass.
  • Setting Up Pass.

Passing Priorities

  • To a team-mate for a shot at goal.
  • Behind the defence into space for a team-mate to run onto.
  • To the feet of the most advanced team-mate to shoot.

Technique in ball control

  • Getting into line of flight
  • Deception i.e. Feinting
  • Decision of selection
  • Know where your opponent(s) is/are

Key Factors

  • Move the controlling surface of the body into the line of the oncoming ball.
  • Keep head still, eyes on the ball and cushion the ball early.
  • Always make an early decision for an immediate relaxed technical contact.
