Dribbling: Solving 1v1 Attacking Situations

Dribbling technique can be used to exploit attacking space and create goal scoring opportunities. Dribbling can also be used to allow players to retain possession against pressure from opponents. It is important that you spend a lot of time on continually learning new moves and ensuring that you are able to use both feet and effectively execute these moves at pace.

Developing the ability to execute moves using both feet is important as it provides you with greater options on the field. For example, if you are able to successfully execute moves using both feet, then they can effectively beat players on both the right and left sides. This allows you to CHOOSE which way to beat opponents and dictate play to defenders. In 1v1 play, attackers SHOULD NEVER allow defenders to dictate the play and push them away from danger areas. As attackers, you want to be "driving at pace" towards goal at every opportunity and taking early shots on net or creating opportunities for others.

To succeed as an attacker against a defender in a 1v1 attacking situations, you must ensure that your approach is correct, you need to unbalance the defender with fakes and then use changes in direction (attacking moves) and pace (speed) to beat and "explode" past defenders at pace.

Warm-Up (10 minutes):

Run on spot or skip for 2-3 minutes
Stretch
Juggle ball for 5 mins, aim for 100 successive, use both feet
Stretch
200 touches of tennis ball (100 each foot)

Key Factors:

Approach: Dribble at the opponent, keeping the ball under close control

Fake: When approximately 2 metres from opponent, apply fake. Drop your eyes down to defender's feet and use your eyes, shoulders, hips, body and the ball to fake and unbalance the defender.

Acceleration: After fake, push the ball past opponent and 'explode' away at pace.

Technical Ball Work (20 minutes):

Fast Footwork: Perform each exercise 20 times, 10 for each foot

Inside Roll: Roll the ball across your body from outside to inside with the inside and sole of the foot and stop the ball with the inside of the other foot.

Outside Roll: Roll the ball across your body from inside to outside with the outside and sole of the foot and stop the ball with the inside of the same foot.

Side-to-Side Push-Pull: Tap ball back and forth with inside of feet, push ball forward with one foot and pull it back the sole of the opposite foot.

Side to Side Step-On: Roll ball to outside with the sole by stepping lightly on the ball, then tap ball back to the inside with the inside of the foot.

Side-to-Side Front Roll: Tap ball back and forth with inside of feet, push ball slightly forward then pull the ball across your body with the front part of the sole.

Pull Instep Push: Push ball forward and pull it back with the sole, then tap ball forward with the instep of the same foot.

Pull a Vee: Push the ball forward and pull it back the sole of the foot while turning and then take the ball with the inside of the same foot.

Pull & Take with Outside of foot: Push the ball forward and pull the ball back with the sole then push the ball diagonally forward with the outside of the foot.

Pull & Roll Behind: Push the ball forward and pull the ball back with the sole of the foot then pass the ball behind the standing leg with the inside of the foot. Control the ball with the sole of the other foot.

Pull turn: Push ball forward with one foot and pull it back with the other while turning toward ball and take the ball in the opposite direction with the inside of the first foot.

Inside of foot turn: Push ball forward, move past ball and turn toward ball and take it with the inside of the foot in the opposite direction.

Outside of foot turn: Push ball forward, move past ball and turn toward ball while taking it with the outside of the foot in the opposite direction.

Cruyff: Push the ball forward, fake kick with inside of foot, but instead pull ball behind the standing leg and change directions.

Stepover Turn : Push ball forward, step over ball with one foot, turn toward ball and take it in the opposite direction.

Full Sole Roll: Roll the sole of one foot forward over the ball and to the outside so the ball stops against your heel. Turn and take the ball with the sole of the other foot with a Step-On.

Scissors
: Starting with the ball to one side, step over or in front of ball so that the ball ends up on the other side of you. Take theball in the opposite direction with the outside of the other foot and then stop ball with the sole of the first foot.

360: Push ball forward, stop it with the sole of one foot while stepping past it, turn and drag ball back with sole of other foot, continue turning all the way around and take the ball with the inside of the first foot.

Kicks Over ball : Kick over ball with inside of foot then pull it back with the sole of the same foot

actually, my coach told me about this program, created by Dennis Mueller, about how you do each like 5 times or something. But to get the most touches, I altered this program by adding in the juggling part with the tennis ball to increase ball control, and adding more touches with the dribbling moves...
