Chapter 2: Wearing the right outfit and gear for soccer
For some people simply getting the opportunity to play the game is enough, and they would only need the bare necessities such as a field, a soccer ball and something to signify the goal posts. However, for the committed and serious player, a lot more is needed, in terms of attire and equipment to complete the entire package.
The following are just some of the items that should be included in the ideal outfit and gear package for soccer:
Cleats – there are various brands of shoes with cleats for different types of soccer field textures. This is usually meant to be an external attachment to the shoe to provide the additional traction on a soft or slippery surface. The individual would have to identify the soccer ground conditions and choose accordingly, the type of shoe suitable for creating comfortable play.
Shin guard – this function is to protect the player’s shins form injury as the style of the game often involved some unintentional contact of this area. The goal is to create maximum protection without hindering the player’s ability to perform well on the field.
Ankle guard – this is also another essential piece of gear that is important in ensuring the player limits the amount of injury sustained. As the ankle area is also susceptible to injury due to the style of play often adopted in soccer, there is a need to protect it adequately.
Jerseys and socks – these are usually picked according to the comfortable factor and perhaps the color and design that popularly depict the individual’s favorite team. However is the individual is part of an existing team, then the choice of these outfits are dictated by the team. These outfits are often times sponsored by the establishments supporting the team financially.
Chapter 3: How the soccer game works
Soccer is sometimes also called football, and is a game played and enjoyed all over the world.
However depending on who and where it is being played, there would ultimately be some variations applied, but the basis outline of the game would still be very much evident.
In order to be able to play the game well, there are several different aspects of the game that should be mastered as this would ultimately contribute to the winning possibilities.
The following are some of the more popular moves that are considered essential to creating a winning strategy for the soccer game:
2v2 quick attacking soccer drill – here the attacking and the defending skill are worked on to ensure optimum results are achieved on the field. The fast paced and dynamic movements will help the team to make headway in scoring the required goals to win.
2v2+4 passing, possession and combination – these too are specific moves that should be mastered. The focus here is on passing, possession or a combination of both when the ball is in play. This is ideal for player to be able to utilize when tight spots become apparent.
Triangle goal game – here all the focus is concentrated on the aspects of the game where the passing and moving is accumulated into ideally positioned finishing moves, which get the player in positions where ball passing and goal scoring is more doable.
5 pass possession game – the passing drills here also pay special attention of creating play by dominating ball possession while completing a series of passes. This possession of the ball skills is to allow the player to concentrate on awareness, speed of play, support and movement to maintain possession. This is especially useful when the movements are fast and furious around the opposing team’s goals scoring areas.
Chapter 4: Excellent moves you can do with your feet
The feet are probably the most important contributing body part for the game of soccer, as the other part of the body have rather restricted uses within the game.
As the feet are in contact with the ground all the different movements for soccer drills, some consideration should be given to ensure the impact on the feet does not come at the price of injury, due to improper use of the feet within the sphere of playing soccer.
In order to receive and maneuver the ball well the player would need to use the inside or outside of the foot to steer the ball away from the pressure so that some space can be created to make the next move or pass more directional.
This will also allow for better dribble movements without killing the ball’s movements when initial contact is made with the feet. Toughing the ball to the side with the inside or outside of the foot a few feet away from the body will make the next pass easier and more forceful if needed, thus importance to master a good first touch routine.
The good first touch routine will allow comfortable control of the ball in front of the player with enough room to convert the movement into a dribbling motion or a good passing motion. It also facilitates ideal and quick movement of the ball, holding power over the ball and goal
scoring actions. This will also allow the player to steer the ball away from the defender and into the space where the body and arms can make a formation to block and protect the ball possession until it is passes on to another team member. This will effectively stop the defender from rushing at the ball to try and gain possession.Other Details
