Soccer skills, drills, and practice links

Decatur Sports Page Soccer Drills
This website provides links to an extensive collection of online soccer coaching and player development resources.

Pill's Drills
Jeff Pill provides an extensive collection of useful soccer drills on this web site. This website also contains useful coaching tips for players in the U6 (kindergarten), U8 (1st-2nd grade), U10 (3rd-4th grade), U12 (5th-6th grade), and U14-U18 (7th-12th grade) age groups.

Movie Clips of Common Soccer Feints - from StrongSoccer.com
This site provides online movie clips of a nice collection of soccer fakes and turns (including most of the Coerver moves). In addition to brief clips of a player executing the move in a practice session, there are also links to video footage of the use of many of these moves by soccer legends in game play. (You can view Cruyff and Maradona, for example, executing the fakes that have been named for them). This site also provides a sample practice session appropriate for youth players. Players who begin developing these basic footskills when they are young develop into much stronger soccer players. At least a few of these drills should be integrated into practice sessions at all age groups. Players in grades 5 and above should have some practice sessions using some of each category of feint. A 20-minute practice session using these moves is provided on this website. A few useful, simple, and fun soccer drills are also provided on this site.
