Coerver basic ball mastery

This is a great one with lots of different touches using all surfaces of the feet! Simple, yet can be challenging if done at speed.

Beginner juggling

From the AC Milan Jr. Camps, this video gives a great basic idea of how to learn the technique of juggling, or “kick-ups” as they’re called in this one.

1000 TOUCHES WORKOUT

Excellent overview of many different touches and moves. Should take around 10 minutes to complete. See if you can improve your time!

FOOTWORK WITHOUT THE BALL

Fast feet without the ball will help when you have the ball at your feet too! These ladder exercises are awesome to help improve foot speed, agility, balance, and coordination.

Don’t have a fancy agility ladder? Get creative! Use chalk outside, or in the garage to draw one, or put masking tape, duct tape, any tape down on the floor! Use a hallway, space in the basement, or anywhere else. Use cones in the yard! Fast feet without the ball means fast feet with the ball.

GOT A WALL? GET SOME TOUCHES IN!

Yael Averbuch (regularly in the US National Team Pool) does a great job showing off some skills to practice if you have a wall (or two) available. She makes it look easy, but lots of the touches, especially the juggling ones are very difficult!
