FOOTBALL DRILLS TO DO DURING LOCKDOWN DAYS
Updated: Apr 9
Football training has become difficult during these unprecedented times. But still we can train to some extend inside our homes . So here are few drills which you can do in a limited area inside your house, in the terrace or in your backyard. All these drills would be working on your ball control and touches.
1. INSIDE OUTSIDE TOUCHES
This one is very easy. Take alternate inside and outside touches while staying at a fixed spot.Make sure that the ball does not go out of control. About 100 repetitions with each leg would be sufficient for a set.
2. THE L-DRAG
The L-turn is a very match effective skill which you use to move into space.Doing
this in repetition helps in improving your ball control. We would be taking
example of right leg to explain the following steps:-
1. pull the ball back with your right leg.
2.Tap the ball to the left side with the inside of your right leg.
3. Control the ball with your left leg.
4. Repeat the same with left leg.
3. BALL TAPS
This is probably the easiest of all drills mentioned in this post. Start by placing
the ball in one point. Then start tapping it alternatively with the sole of your
foot.This one is great for your close ball control.
The v-drag is one of the most commonly used skill in a match. Here are steps for
the right leg:
1. Pull the ball back with your right leg using the sole of your foot.
2. Tap the ball to the right side with the inside of your foot.
Do this alternatively with your left and right foot
5. INSIDE FOOT TOUCHES
Another simple one, keep the ball between your legs and start tapping it with the
inside of your foot. Make sure that the ball does not move forward or go out of
6. OUTSIDE INSIDE TOUCHES MOVING FORWARD
Its same as the first one but you need to move forward with each touch.
do this with both the legs.
reps:50-75 with each leg
7. WALL PASSES
This one works with your first touch and passes. Hit the ball towards the wall and
then recieve it as it comes back. Innumerable variations can be brought to this drill like taking the first touch into space, moving forward and backward as you pass etc.
If you do all these drills as per the specified reps for three sets, you can consider it as a full individual ball control training. Please compromise with the video location and quality as we are also in lock down.
