V-Roll Four Cone Drill! A quick technical drill to work on your footwork and tight space dribbling. 1. Set up 4 cones in a straight line with about three feet between each cone. 2. Start at either end with the ball at your feet and when ready start dribbling at the first cone. 3. When you reach the first cone, stop the ball, roll the ball back towards your body, tap the ball across the cone, roll it back to the origin, and then tap it forward to the next cone with the outside of the same foot. 4. Repeat the same process at every cone. 5. Repeat the drill with the opposite foot as well! #BecomeElite
Are You Doing Enough During the Off-Season?
“There are three types of people in the world, those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.” – Mary Kay Ash
Many athletes are now in the off-season portion of their soccer season and while the off-season is definitely a great time for rest, recovery and reflection, it is definitely not the time to kick your feet up and backtrack on all of the gains you made this past season.

That’s why we’ve worked to put together some resources in our December "Off-Season Training" Issue specifically to help you get better during the off-season. Find out more
