How to Play Soccer : Trapping Techniques in Soccer for Beginners

Control is very important in soccer so we
want to talk about trapping the ball. Two kinds of traps. There is trapping the ball
on the ground, receiving the ball on the ground and from in the air. I am going to have Katy
pass me the ball and I am going to demonstrate a correct trap on the ground. Okay. A little
pass receive the ball here. Always as the ball is coming to you it is almost like cushioning
the ball. One more time. Cushion the ball just like that. If you don’t trap the ball
correctly and you come in with the ball you are going to have bad control. Just watch
this. You don’t want the ball there you want it moving in with your body, always close
to you. One more time. See the ball is bouncing in my feet, I don’t want that. I want a
nice smooth pass to be received like this. The same technique applies when you are trapping
the ball from the air. You want to give in to the ball a little bit so it is as close
to you as possible. Let’s take a look at this. One more time. I am taking the ball
down and here it is at my feet. I just come down with the ball nice and easy.

  1. No offense to people who learned anything from this but..seriously why is there a vid on this idiot trapping a ball…trapping a ball should come absolutely natural …if not with practice

  2. Yeah, do you think brazilian guy are taught to ¨pass¨or to ¨catch the ball¨ It's a natural gift, you cannot teach that.

  3. u learn soccer basic by playin with the ball alone or with children of brazil, argentina, italy, spain..u dont need a teacher

  4. this shit don't work when theres 3 defenders on ur ass u jus gotta do wot possibole at tha time (dude get the lass to kick tha fucking a bit fucking HARDER!!!!!)

  5. Instead of making ambiguous and unhelpful comments, why don't you post a better video, or at least be more specific with your criticism. Share your knowledge, instead of hating on others.


  7. I'm just curious. You act/seem like you know exactly what you're doing and you're an expert. However, there are many people who have put videos up like this. Why not show the more advanced people things, such as, where to kick the ball if u want it to sink in the air? Or curve? how to get more power behind ur kicks?

  8. I have a question, trapping a ball from that distance is easy and should be for most if not all people.

    I was looking for videos to show how to trap the ball from a long pass (e.g. when the ball is travelling harder and faster)

  9. Iv'e seen how Fabregas and Xavi trap the ball so effectively with their first touch and that helps them get a good pass away in high pressure situations. This maybe simple but it's a really effective skill.
