Footballer Direct: Dribbling Skills
Footballer Direct is the UKs leading platform for up and coming footballers to get spotted. Register your interest today with Footballer Direct and follow our football news twitter for all the latest. In this post we give you a dribbling drill that will help the ball skills of any aspiring footballer.
What you will do is firstly, place five markers in a straight line, leaving about 2 to 3 yards between each one.
The aim of this drill is to basically dribble the ball from start to finish, weaving in and out of the cones.
Do this slowly at first but as you get more confident, pick the pace up and try to do it faster.
Use both feet to control the ball if you are confident with your weaker foot and don't get discouraged if your dribbling is heavy, you will get better with practice.
Once you start getting better, you can move the cones closer together to make it harder for yourself. This drill helps you get better at shifting weight in order to beat defenders.
Being able to move left, then right in quick succession can play a key factor in being able to take on defenders and create room for yourself. Increase the speed of the drill and you'll soon be dodging midfielders instinctively.
