Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Player throws ball high in the air and wait for ball to drop before catching the ball on the laces to control it.

Coaching points

Foot should be raised initially, toes pointed to the sky.

As the ball falls and strikes the foot, the foot should be lowered to cushion the impact and stop the ball from bouncing away.

Progression

Can be progressed by adding a defender who will not challenge until the ball has come down, making it important for the attacker to have a good first touch, otherwise the ball could bounce straight to the defender.
