Footwork - Box Box Scissors


Coaching Points

  • Use the inside of the feet tapping the ball between both feet, between the middle of your foot and toes
  • Step over the ball with one leg moving away from the mid-line of your body before doing the same with the other leg
  • Touches should be light yet controlled and away from pressure
  • Stay on toes and head up, yet keeping the ball at the bottom of your peripheral vision

Progression Ideas

  • Increase the speed of the move, this will come with practice
  • Finish with a controlled pass or shot
  • Add toe taps to the move
  • Work against a friend and or set a time to complete the drill
