Aimed at both parents and coaches, Championship Soccer Drills hopes to make soccer practice sessions more stimulating and fun, with more drills and routines than you can shake a leg at. Under the direction of known youth sports coach Marty Schupak and nationally known coach Bart Jansen, a group of crack soccer youngsters demonstrate drills meant to enhance individual and team skills in the areas of ball handling, dribbling, chipping (just like golf-short, high-arching shots), and passing. Also covered are “heading” techniques (yes, that’s bouncing the ball off the ol’ noggin), as well as one-on-one drills, and “back moves” (fancy and strategic ball control techniques). A virtual book-of-drills on video that will be a boon for the target audience (coaches and parents) looking for new ideas to sharpen kids’ skills, this is definitely recommended.- Review from Video LibrarianBackyard Soccer DrillsThis straightforward program displays more than 40 basic to advanced soccer drills that can be practiced in confined areas (driveway, decks, backyards) by individuals or small groups. Clear voice-over narration describes each captioned sequence as a veteran coach and young players demonstrate the drills. Close-up camera shots and slow-motion segments make directions easy to follow. The drills run the gamut from those incorporating fancy footwork and head shots to basic passing, shooting, and other offensive moves. Several fun games such as “Red Light, Green Light” and “Steal the Bacon”, are turned into soccer drills with the inclusion of various techniques. Coaches looking to liven up their practices and players wanting to sharpen their skills are the prime audience for this useful program.-Review From BooklistAll of these videos are available free at Amazon Prime Video.
