First Touch

One of the most essential elements of the game and what separate good players from great is first touch.  This video outlines 3 first touch exercises with 2 cones.  It is a simple activity that can be done 1 on 1 or with a group of players.  Instructions and coaching points are embedded in the video.  

Coaches, add this as part of your warm-up for this week.  Ensure that players get plenty of touches on the ball and continue to develop their first touch.
