I jog for a while, then do this sequence in order:

(each one for 20 meters, then jog back)
-high knees
-kick butts
-side shuffle
-carioca
-open the door
-close the door
-kicks (motion of kicking)
-lunges

Then I static stretch the basic leg muscles.

Go with scott says on the dynamic stretching part or youtube has some video's of a "better" way of doing it that gets more of the muscles. During highschool i would do the dynamic warmup then go and just dribble and get used to the skills i would most likely be using in a game. After than my friend and i would pass to each other starting about 10 yards apart and work up to 30 or 40 yards. Then i would go and play with the ball again until we got in a group for small side.

After that it's game time.

The only exception don't do the static stretching it's been proven to reduce strength by 9% for 1 hour in your muscles so you end up slower in your sprinting and overall power.

really? i feel really vulnerable to muscle pulls if i don't do static stretching. i'm afraid of sprinting full out or kicking the ball with full power.

if you go through a more extensive dynamic stretch it shouldn't be a problem.

I go for a 100-200m slow job, followed by 20m each of: but kicks, high knees, 'open the gate', 'close the gate', shuffles, ect.. then i do dynamic stretches on my whole body working up from my calves to my triceps. then juggle for a bit, mess around with the ball, and then im off to train.
