Hastings Ellis who runs our boys 12-16 age group,
The Boys Soccer Mastery group comprises of drills based on in-game scenarios as in the video displayed below:
The player is positioned on the edge of the 18 yard box with their back to the goal and facing the “supposed” player making the pass. In this case it is Hastings.
Hastings throws the ball to the players Head and centre mass. This requires the first stage of control by adaptability. Where, the player has to decided how to control the ball either by using their head, shoulder, chest, knee or foot. Once the ball is under control, the player has to execute a 180 degree turn to face the goal. Once facing the goal, the player then has the freedom of choice to attack and shoot at the goal in whatever way they desire. This drill reflects a typical in-game scenario, giving players at our football centre the time to practice and enhance their technical skill set.
