Rebound power chest – Control

Rebound power chest ball control.

Individual Skills Library.

1. Use a wall, any other rebound surface or a partner (to pass to you).

2. Get very close to the wall or partner (within 3 metres).

3. Kick (or throw) the ball high against the wall (the important thing is that you strike or throw the ball hard and high so that it rebounds very quickly and in the air). If using a partner, they can throw or kick the ball aerially to you.

4. When the ball rebounds to you in the air, react quickly and cushion control it with your chest. Repeat the process of striking the ball high against the wall and controlling the aerial rebound with your chest.

5. For players younger than 12, throw the ball instead of kicking it and be cautious about attempting to control aerial balls with too much power with your chest. Be sensible.

6. Put yourself under pressure by staying close to the wall (or your partner) – this will test your reactions and touch. If you are testing yourself, you won’t be able to control the ball perfectly every time. Work hard!
