Single Tick Scissor - Dynamic Ball Mastery Drills for U8-U9
Single Tick Scissor Tutorial
This drill is an excellent way to make an automatism of the scissor move.
The exercise starts with a gentle tick outwards on a 45° angle from the forward direction and is performed with the instep of the foot.
Direct after the tick the support foot is repositioned and the scissor move is executed.
The player circles the foot around the ball where it then becomes the supporting foot.
Now a gentle tick is given with the other foot on a 45° angle.
The challenge is to perform gentle ticks with the instep of the feet (45° angle) and to make enough space after the scissor to perform the next tick.
While the player moves left and right, he/she should maintain a straight line.
Dynamic Ball Control Drills
Dynamic ball control drills are a bridge between the static ball control drills (Coerver) and cones dribbling drills.
Incorporate these exercises in your soccer (football) training to sharpen your first touch skills and ball coordination. You need a little more space for these ball coordination drills as you are moving forward and back. Soccer coaches should incorporate these drills in their soccer training or warm-up time before a soccer game.
