This series of individual soccer skills focuses on individual touch and control. Improve your inside of the foot passing, outside of foot passing, thigh volleys, chest volleys, headers, and volleys.

To begin this series of individual soccer skills, place 3 cones in a triangle approximately 5 yards between each cone. The coach should stand approximately 5 yards from the opening of a side of the triangle. The player should start at the back cone farthest from the coach. The coach should play a ball to the outside of the cone on the players right as the player moves towards that cone. The player returns the ball to the coach and moves around the farthest cone and towards the cone on the left. This movement should continue for 1 minute. If you are working with 2 players, have one player rest while the other player is resting.
