Through these ages the young soccer players should be having the ball at their feet for the majority of the session. Using fun games while the ball is at their feet is key to keeping these young children engaged and loving soccer. Games that challenges the kids to dribble the ball and then stop it with their feet is a great way to slowly introduce correct dribbling techniques. Having stations or commands such as freeze or statue encourages the young soccer player to dribble with the ball close to their feet so they can control the ball instantly on the command. Without even knowing it the players are developing foundation techniques that will live with them throughout their soccer journey.
