Description

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.

Help the soccer player in your family train and improve - even if you have limited soccer ability or knowledge. 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.

Passing
This series of exercises will provide you with a lot of touches on the ball. Beginning with simple two-touch passing technique, you will receive expert coaching tips and exercises that start simple and progress into first touch set ups, utilizing different foot surfaces, altering distances, reading the timing of a player's run, and playing the ball to the receiver's proper foot.

Shooting
The shooting exercises in this video focus on developing body mechanics so that players can develop the technique needed for properly striking a ball without the benefit of a goal. Included is a unique juggling drill that reinforces the proper place to strike the ball on your foot.

This is a great DVD for a parent or anyone who is unfamiliar with soccer to start learning ways they can help players improve. Coach Koons provides ideas on how someone who is unfamiliar with soccer can help a player improve.

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.

85 minutes. 2012.

Championship Productions has again done a wonderful job of helping me share my ideas. I had a lot of fun creating these videos. I'm often asked by players and parents for inspiration toward exercises for children to perform on their own. Thats what these videos are all about. This video focuses on: 1) Passing Skills - the video shows detailed examples of proper technique and exercises players can use with a teammate, a friend or a parent (even if the parent has never kicked a ball before). Its a great video for parents to help make a positive impact on the development of their child. 2) Shooting- it can be very tough for children to improve shooting with one ball, maybe no goal, etc., but this video will show your young player how to take 100s of shots a day in a short period of time and with nothing more than a single ball. Please do check the videos out and feel free to contact me with any questions!!
