Mom and Dad, you are your child’s first and most influential teacher/coach. The stimulation and support you provide can instill a desire to play soccer. If your child plays only to gain your approval, their interest in playing may decline, and playing for its own sake is sacrificed. Make this learning experience Together as much FUN as possible so that your child becomes self-motivated and improves on his/her own.
Play Soccer In Your Mind
Make Up Buzz Words
Create Buzzwords for key parts of the move. For example:
TOUCH - TAP - TAKE
- Right Foot – TOUCH the ball slightly to the right.
- Right Foot – TAP the ball across the body to the left.
- Left Foot – TAKE the ball in the left-opposite direction.
Close your eyes and see yourself doing the move.
Say the Buzzwords out loud to get a better picture.
Go Outside and Try the Move
