Hi! I’m Mark Wilson with United Soccer Academy.
We are here with Expert Village and we are going to talk a little bit about dribbling.
Right now we are going to look at changing our speed while we dribble the soccer ball,
and there is a few things that we have to remember when we do that. We have to change
our speed. If you look at our demonstrator here, we start off high taking lots of touches
on the ball, and then we get down low and we take fewer touches on the ball. Okay we
would just like to show that again. Again we are going to show our demonstrators starting
off high with his back straight, he takes few touches close to him and less touches
as he gets down low and accelerates. He has head up, he is looking where he is going,
and he is in control of the ball. We just demonstrated dribbling the ball changing our
speed. We start off high with our back straight, we take 2-3 touches and close to us. And as
we increase speed, the ball comes out in front of us, and we get down lower so we can start
working on our speed and taking the space in front of us.
