How to Dribble a Soccer Ball : How to Control a Soccer Ball

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
soccer balls, and our main point for the first lesson is control. Control of the soccer ball
is the foundation for any soccer player that needs to build their skills for this exercise.
So we are going to have a look at Mark over here who’s dribbling for control. He has no
pressure on the ball, just know and you can see that he is using different parts of his
feet, he is using the inside, he is using the outside, he is using the sole, and the
laces, he has his head up and he is taking one touch for every step of the ball. You
can see that the ball is close to his body, so for every touch he takes of the ball he
has one step. So just a recap the basics of dribbling. With no pressure on the ball, I
do not have a opponent pressurizing the ball, we are basically dribbling to control it,
we want to take one touch per step, we want to use different parts of the feet, we are
going to use the inside, we want to use the outside, we want to use our laces, and we
want to use the sole of our foot, and we have to keep our head up so we know where the space
is that we are moving to.

  9. @WindSUrferIs13 it's also futbol, futsal, and other things you can call it whatever tf you like, it's still the same beautiful sport..

  10. I'm just throwing this out there, but it's not just him. I try playing here in America, and I watch all the games on TV, including America, and it's most Americans that don't know how to properly play. For one, I see Americans using the front of the foot to shoot, or if they try the proper way, they turn their whole body and use the complete side, both which are wrong, and the last can mess your ACL up. Just sayin.
