Receiving - Inside

 

Coaching Points

U14-U19

  • Use the inside of the foot, between the middle of your foot and just before your big toe
  • Keep foot flat and off the floor, enough to touch the middle of the ball
  • Complete with one foot and then swap and use the opposite foot
  • Touches should be light yet controlled to ensure the ball does not run away from you
  • Stay on toes and head up ready to adjust feet when needed

Progression Ideas

U14-U19

  • Increase the speed of the pass to make it more difficult to control
  • Change the height of the pass
  • Receive the ball from more than one angle
  • Finish with a controlled shot or dribble
  • Work against a friend and or set a time to complete the drill
