Develop Basic Ball Mastery : Develop Basic conditioning
If a player can do the exercises below, then they will find all future game functional ball moving techniques easier to master. If a player can't do the exercises below, then they will always struggle to move the ball around their feet well. So if you have a young player who is happy to do a little bit of focused technical practice, start with these 3 exercises and work through the levels for each technique until each level is comfortable.
Work through the levels in each exercise.
- Level 0 : Hold onto something : This is not demonstrated in the videos but is a good place to start, so that the focus can be purely on the ball.
- Level 1 : Balance
- Level 2 : Hop
- Level 3 : Head Up
- Level 4 : Eyes Closed (Advanced players should be able to do all ball mastery exercises with the eyes closed).
Roll the ball Forward / Backward
