2,000 Touches to Better Soccer: Dribbling and Goalkeeping Exercises

with Brandon Koons, Otterbein University Head Women's Soccer Coach;
Koons has compiled a 187-51-23 (.786) record over his 13 seasons at the helm of Otterbein women's soccer. The program made its first NCAA Final Four appearance in 2010, boasting the nation's top-ranked defense in the process with just four goals allowed in 24 matches. The team finished the 2008, 2009, and 2010 seasons ranked among the top-ten nationally.

Create a personal practice environment that promotes experimentation, creativity and encourages players to develop their individual style!

The 2,000 Touches Series provides creative ways for young players to practice on their own, with a teammate, or with a parent. The videos will inspire players who simply need guidance on what to practice.

The exercises in this video series were specially chosen because they require minimal extra equipment, if any. You will see variations of the exercises that allow parents and friends to help - even if they've never kicked a ball. Demonstrators in the series include boys and girls ranging from 8 to U18.

As you improve, you can do the exercises quicker, longer or under more pressure to challenge yourself and increase your skill level.

Dribbling
This series of exercises is specially designed to get players plenty of touches on the ball in a short time period. Players will be challenged by drills that allow them to practice a variety of feints and turns.

You will see step-over moves, Cruyff Turns, lunges, and cuts and you will be encouraged to add your own style and flair. Learn a progression of dribbling drills that encourage lots of tight, controlled touches with all surfaces of the foot. Sharpen your skills using Coach Koon's simple grid layout or his obstacle course.

Goal Keeping
Discover simple drills that will help you develop the quick hands and soft catches you need to keep the ball out of the net. As you go deeper into the video, you will uncover more challenging drills for catches and dives that promote side to side movement and quick footwork. Finally, you will see exercises you can use to improve both footwork and ball settling from a variety of services coming off a wall.

Because of the constant ball contact these drills provide, they can also be used for conditioning. Simply increase the distances and players will benefit not only from lots of touches but also from the aerobic conditioning.

After viewing the 2,000 Touches Series, players will have everything they need to go outside and get meaningful touches on the ball. And parents of young players will be able to create challenging exercises to help guide their young players toward improvement.
