Dribbling - Inside of Foot


Coaching Points

  • Use the inside of the foot, between the middle of your foot and just before your big toe
  • Stay balanced and lean slightly over the ball
  • Practice with both feet and keep the ball close
  • Touches should be light yet controlled and away from pressure
  • Head up, yet keeping the ball at the bottom of your peripheral vision
  • Turn hips with the ball, so both are traveling in the same direction

Progression Ideas

  • Increase the speed of the dribble, this will come with practice
  • Use both feet, if started on dominant foot only
  • Increase the number of cones and decrease the distance between the cones
  • Use two cones, (similar distance to cones 1 & 3 in the video) and work in a figure of 8, allowing for speed while using both feet.
  • Finish with a controlled pass or shot
  • Work against a friend and or set a time to complete the drill
