On the 2nd day of Xmas, my football coach sent to me.... Two Toe Taps

Now that the festivities are over and the presents have been put away, its time to get out in the garden and practice some drills..... Today, we have sent you some Toe Taps to try out those new boots.

Toe Taps Allow Players To Develop Their Touch And Control Of The Ball With The Sole Of The Foot.

KEY COACHING POINTS

Focus on the correct technique

Practice with both feet

Increase speed as you master the technique

SET UP

Set up 2 cones 10m apart. Player starts at cone 1 with ball and begins performing skill to cone 2. When player reaches cone 2, they turn & repeat the skill back to cone 1. Repeat. (If you don't have cones any object will do)

PROGRESSIONS

1. Set realistic & challenging time limits to complete (Example: “Must complete 1 circuit in 20 seconds”)

2. Challenge players to see how many touches of the ball they can get in between cones
