Dribbling is the act of possessing and controlling the ball with your feet, as well as to set up or pass a shot. This iSport Lessons video looks at how to dribble. There are three basic ways that you can dribble, and each of these ways involves touching the ball with a different part of the foot: the inside or instep, the outside, and the sole of your foot. Start by familiarizing yourself with each of these three touches individually. The better you are at mastering each touch on the ball, the more naturally dribbling will come to you. Your primary goal when dribbling the ball is to maintain possession. A good way to do this, is by trying to get a touch on the ball with each stride you take instead of simply kicking the ball far ahead of you and chasing it down. The easiest way to lose possession of the ball is by dribbling recklessly. By keeping the ball close, you can make a quick decision to change direction if your current path becomes obstructed. A quick direction change while dribbling is one of the easiest ways to beat a defender. When you first start dribbling it’s okay to look down at your feet. This will help you learn what it takes to make a good touch or dribble. However, your eventual goal should be the ability to confidently and accurately dribble the ball without having to look down. One of the keys to becoming a well-rounded soccer player is the ability to use both feet when passing, shooting, and especially dribbling. So let’s review what we’ve covered: • Dribbling is the act of moving the ball in a controlled manner with your feet. • You dribble with the inside, outside, and sole of your feet. It’s important that you learn to dribble with both feet and also that you learn to dribble with you head up. Focus on each of the parts covered in this video to develop a solid dribbling technique.
