First, our hearts go out to all affected by the coronavirus. We know it presents a number of challenges and we hope that we can be a helpful part of your time learning new skills from home.
And on that note, in challenging times, as soccer players we adapt… or rather, we do more of what we already do at SISM! So if you haven’t had the chance to learn ground combinations then there’s no better time than now. We’ve found a good compilation video to enjoy with players from around the world. So find a combination that you like and try it out. You only need a small area in your house to practice these ball control skills. (Click here to view video.)
We’ve covered how these skills benefit players on the soccer field, so I won’t repeat the lessons here. However two quick take a ways are: 1) Increased creativity and 2) Transitioning from one skill to the next under pressure becomes second nature.
Stay safe and until next month!
