Sole rapid – Control

Sole rapid ball control.

Individual Skills Library.

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

2. Pass the ball using any part of your foot (inside, laces, it’s not important as you are focusing on ball control, not the pass) against the wall.

3. When the ball rebounds to you, control it with the sole of your foot (the ball should stop ‘dead’ wedged between the front part of your foot and the ground). Repeat the process of passing against the wall and controlling the rebound.

4. Vary your distance from the wall but do not go too far away, try to stay fairly close – the closer you are, the quicker you will need to react as the ball rebounds. The further away you are, the more time you have to react.

5. Use the sole of your right foot only for a period of time, then use the sole of your left foot only and finally move on to using the soles of both feet alternately to control the ball each time it rebounds to you.

6. Put yourself under pressure by working at speed – pass the ball firmly so that it rebounds to you quickly and tests your reactions and touch. Work on controlling the ball and making an instant pass to improve your footwork speed.
