Montz former pro and founder of Today we are learning how to receive a hard
pass in the air. If this is what you look like when you receive
a pass then this OSA video is for you! This OSA video is sponsored by our parent
company Believe in it®. Believe in it® is apparel that inspires you to reach your goal.

1st touch in soccer is everything. If you can’t control a ball it’s hard to play this
game. Most of this exercise will be controlling a ball out of the air but the same technique
applies to the ground too. Key Points:
1. Think of catching an egg. Would you catch an egg like this? No, because it would crack.
Would you catch an egg like this? Yes, because you are cradling or cushioning it in. This
same idea applies with your foot. 2. Have your foot meet the ball out in front
of your plant leg. This will give you room to cushion the ball in. 3. Cushion the ball in right as it’s about
to hit your foot. Do not let it hit you and then start cushioning it in. That’s to late,
it’s all about timing. 4. Make contact on the upper middle part of
the ball. This helps get your touch to go down. If you make contact under the ball or
on the lower part of the ball, there is a good chance the ball will pop up on you. 5. Have a slight lean forward with your chest.
Don’t lean back when you take your touch. 6. Keep your eyes on the ball. Look at the
ball when you take your touch. Equipment Needed:
You will need a partner and a ball. If you don’t have a partner use a wall or fence and
make due the best you can by kicking the ball off the fence and as it comes back to you,
control it. Exercise Player Can Do:
Start off having your partner with the ball in their hands. They throw it to you under
hand with little spin on the ball from 5 yards away. They throw it, you control it and pass
it back on the ground. Then repeat for 1 minute and switch with your partner. Your partner should not be throwing the ball
to hard at you. Decent pace but not to hard. We are working on control and we have to take
baby steps to improve, don’t immediately start making it to hard on yourself. Once you start
to get it, then you can increase speed of the throw and distance. Repeat this exercise from 5 yards until you
get it. Once you are getting it have your partner throw it from 10 yards and at a faster
pace. Then have them kick it from 15 yards and kick it at a fast pace. Keep increasing
distance and speed of pass as you get more confident. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong:
Some things that could be going wrong. If the ball is hitting you and just flying off
your foot then you are not cushioning the ball in. Think of the egg, cushion the egg
in when you catch it, don’t let it just hit you and crack. If you can’t get the timing down then your
partner is throwing or kicking the ball to fast to you. Ask them politely to not pass
it so hard so you can get the timing down. Once you do get the timing down, then you
can ask them to speed up the pass to you. Bonus Tips!
Juggling is a great way to improve ball control! Click here to watch OSA videos teaching you
how to juggle. Improve your juggling and receiving hard passes out of the air will start to come
more naturally to you. When using other parts of your body for controlling
a pass the same idea applies; cushion the ball in. Don’t let it just hit you and bounce
off. Hope you enjoyed this Online Soccer Academy

  1. i like soccer because it is fun sport to play i just love how i can express myself. 
    This has been a moment with a boy who loves to play soccer. Thank you for reading this comment

  2. Hey I just had a random question if a guy is thin and unfit to the point of emaciation doing strength drills won't really benefit him right?

  3. Good thing you didn't use your old ball!
    Awesome video… I love that you include the part about what could be going wrong in order to make corrections. Good coaching!

  4. Jared thank you so much for all the videos. The videos are helping me a lot. And hey I used the Scissors you taught and scored goals.. Feeling great 😀 😀 Thank you Jared.. best of luck.. and do you ship the Believe in it shirts outside of the States??

  5. Hi jared can you do a story when you where pro in a video like that one when you met Beckham for the first time?

  6. Mate maybe it's an Australian v American thing… I really like your videos but the "little dap" thing you keep doing at the start of each video really makes me want to mute you for the first 30 seconds of each of your vids… makes you sound really contrived

  7. Hi! I love your videos and i'm learning from them…they help me a lot! You can describe really good what is wrong,and how to do it 🙂 Can I ask you who is your favourite player? Thanks. 🙂

  8. Is there any videos on controlling the ball on your chest when its coming in the air every time I do it bounces off me and goes way a head of me. Thanks

  9. Most of the time i have to run towards the ball to receive a pass in the game so how to trap it then as i am not able to cushion it while moving  

  10. I already control the technique , but there are parts that i didn't really know about
    . For example: leaning forward. great work there , Jared

  11. Little dap.I have a question about cleats. I realize that cleats have little impact on how you play and shoot but I currently use hypervenoms and it doesn't feel like good shooting cleats. So would mercurials be any better?

  12. I often end up touching the ball not in the middle of it, or just kick the air and let the ball pass me. Any thoughts?

  13. nice videos but i was wondering if you could make a video of how to trap with your head you have done all other body parts but that.

  14. tnx jared ,it helped me a lot,  the thing is I get it right when I practice alone or with a partner but in a game I make mistakes when taking a hard pass and I get confused when the ball is coming high in the air,so I hope that u could help me in this.

  15. I came here cause in the last P.E lesson someone passed the ball badly and I couldn't control it and everybody let me down and said that I can't play but I scored on the volley I can shoot the ball or pass it perfectly but when it comes to controlling the pass this is my weakness and I want people to stop being cocky like iam only 13 do the coaches expect me to be Messi or Ronaldo like they have to chill I'm still in my beginnings

  16. Yo Jared, could this exercise also be done against a wall? I don't have a partner and I've been throwing the ball at the wall and using my chest, my head, my knee, and foot to do it? Is this a good idea?

  17. My coach says go back as far as your foot can kick passing it to a partner and stop it which will increase your eye sight with the ball

  18. How would I figure out if the aerial boll is coming hard or non hard , from a distance of 10,12 feet the look the same , untill later a harder shot makes me push my stagnancy state to it's limit and forces me to move back and non soft for vice versa, I have not come accross player who had succeeded to drop the boll near my either receiving leg

  19. This is a waaay better explanation than the way my soccer coach explained it thank you so much! I’m pumped for practice tomorrow I wanna try this already
