Soccer Homework for the Week of June 24-29

Juggling

Continue to work on juggling for at least ten minutes per day. You must improve on your consecutive number of juggles by at least one this week over last week. Hopefully you are able to increase by more than that. You should watch the video tutorial again from last week’s homework to refresh your memory on the technique. Remember the goal is 20 consecutive juggles with the feet without the ball hitting the ground.

Roll-Overs

There isn’t any formal homework for the roll-overs, but just do them for a couple of minutes to keep them fresh on your mind. Work on areas where you are weaker.

Triangles

Watch this video to refresh your memory from training on Saturday:

Do 50 reps with each foot, then take a 30-second break, then 50 more with each foot, then a 30-second break, then 50 more with each foot for a total of 300 reps.

Touch-Touch Cone Drill

This is the drill we’ve been doing in training for the last few sessions. Here’s the video:

If you don’t have cones, you can use some rocks or whatever, anything you want to use for markers. You should have 10 markers. Go through the cones, then speed dribble back to the first cone and go through again for five reps. Take a 1 min break and repeat this five times, for a total of 25 times through the cones. Try to increase your speed as you go through.

Strength

We will do the same strength regimen as last week. Go to last week’s homework to review. Try to go faster and do more reps in the same time than you did last week.

Soccer Homework for the Week of June 17

We will have three areas of training for this week. Each player should spend a minimum of ten minutes per day on each of the three areas.

JUGGLING

As I mentioned last week, the goal is to be able to do 20 juggles with the feet only (preferably alternating feet) by our first game. Here is the video tutorial:

Please have your daughter watch this video at least once a week until she has the technique down.

ROLL OVERS

We worked on these drills in training this week. Please watch the following segment of this video:

This should be done a minimum for two minutes, as many times as possible, rest for 30 seconds, then two more minutes, etc. for the total of ten minutes.

STRENGTH TRAINING

Strength training doesn’t need to be done every day. Three times per week should be sufficient.

Squats – 3 sets of 30 seconds each, 30 second rest in between

Lunge Jumps – 2 sets of 30 seconds each, 1 minute rest in between

Squat Jumps – 2 sets of 30 seconds each, 1 minute rest in between

Here is a video that shows the technique for each of these. Please only watch the video for the technique, not for the workout itself (he calls lunge jumps split jumps):

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LOG YOUR TIME!!!
