This should be a priority in training and games, especially in the early years. As this skillis mastered, the rest of the game becomes easier.Practices should bebuilt around facilitating the development of the skills necessary to move and control the ball well.As these individual skills and the creativity to make them come alive in the game are developed to a level of competence, the finer points, first of passing skill and later of team organization canbe taught.

  5. DELIVERY BREAKDOWN Each move must be broken down when being delivered. This process will not only help players master the skill quicker but challenges each player at their own pace. Each move goes through a 3 stage process – Preparation, Action, Recovery. Each move should also go through a 3 speed process – Static, Moving, At Pace. Players should be allowed to progress to the next speed in their own time, with guidance from the coach. Preparation The selection of moveThe approach to the ballThe position of the body Action The moment of deceptionThe footwork The change of body weight RecoveryThe adjustment of feetThe reposition of body weightThe change of speed/direction from the opponent Static No movement Fundamental understanding of the move Moving Roll the ball from feet and perform moveStrong understanding of the moveAt Pace Full speedMastery of the move New England Revolution Academy .
