Youth Soccer Drills & Skills : How to Trap a Soccer Ball with Your Thigh

My name is Tim Boucher soccer coach of LaSalle
Academy for Expert Village. The next thing we want to talk about is trapping the ball,
controlling the ball when it’s in the air. The first part we’re going to talk about is
trapping the ball with your thigh. What you want to do is as the ball is coming in you
want to have your thigh up so that when it hits your thigh you drop it so you can step
and make a good pass. You want the ball to drop right in front of you so that you can
step and make a good pass to someone. Let’s watch a demonstration. Again using your right
and left foot notice how Ryan’s moving his feet. Nice trap, he brings his thigh up, drops
right in front of him, makes a good pass. It’s up, drop and a good pass. As you begin
to get this and you become more advanced at it you can begin to valley the ball where
the ball doesn’t even hit the ground and you just trap it with your thigh and then play
it right back to the person.

  2. Is this right? Hold your cause it will have a tendency if you have momentum to push the ball out. Is it not better to bring the thigh up but keep your foot behind the thigh, meaning hold your foot back a little to keep the thigh from hitting the ball

  3. Has anyone tried Eprosoke Training Program? (just google it) I have noticed many amazing things about this popular training program.
