Footwork - Brazilian Toe Taps


Coaching Points

  • Use the sole of the foot, between the middle of your foot and toes
  • Stay on your toes and hop from one foot to the other using the sole to touch the middle of the ball
  • After touching the ball with both feet you should then cross your opposite foot over and touch the ball before repeating the move again using the other foot to cross over
  • Touches should be light yet controlled and keep the ball in the same position throughout
  • Stay on toes and head up, yet keeping the ball at the bottom of your peripheral vision

Progression Ideas

  • Increase the speed of the exercise, this will come with practice
  • Complete the exercise on the move
  • Work against a friend and or set a time to complete a set number
