To start off our list of the best soccer drills you can practice at home, we had to begin with a basic drill, cone dribbling. With just a yard, a soccer ball, and some cones needed, you will place three cones in a line or triangle, about the feet apart.
Then, simply dribble the ball between the cones, allowing the surfaces of your feet to control the ball. Practice quick touches to the ball, and guide the ball around the cones in a pattern, with control, and speed.
Wall passes, or wall juggling, is next on our list of the best soccer drills you can practice at home. A great way to practice juggling the ball as well as your strengthen your reflexes, this drill requires standing around one to three yards away from the wall.
To begin, throw the ball against the wall, and juggle the ball with your feet, feeding it back against the wall, and repeating this process until you cannot control it any longer. With practice and dedication to this drill, the difficulty will decrease.
25's dribbling will both condition and improve your dribbling skills. This cone drill includes lining up about six to 10 cones five yards apart. Then, weave the ball through the cones using the inside of your feet. Repeat this drill by alternating between the outside and inside of your feet. Circle right, then left, around the cones.
Or, if you are looking for a more simple approach, you will start at cone one, sprint to cone two with the ball, turn back and sprint to cone one, then to cone three, then to one, then to four, and so on. Take a minute of rest before beginning your next set.
One Touch Shooting
One touch shooting will allow you to get rid of the element of hesitation. Hesitation is what often will cause shots to be failed or missed, and practicing this will allow you to drive through with the shot in just one touch.
As one of the best soccer drills you can practice at home, you will practice completing a shot with just one touch. You must adjust not only your body, but your head and feet to manage this shot, and perfect it.
Headers are always a great thing to practice, even when you're at home and alone. A great way to practice this would be on goal, because believe it or not, 20 percent of goals are scored from headers at the top level. If not, just go back to the wall you've used for your wall passes. This will be treated very similarly to this drill, except using your head, of course.
Push-pull is yet another one of the best soccer drills you can practice at home. Focusing on your dribbling skills, this is an exercise that will pinpoint the muscles in your foot that strengthen your dribbling.
A great practice to do at home, this can be done every day to see the best results, and you don't need anything but your feet. You will set your foot on the ball, and move it from your toe to heel to toe, hence the push-pull name. Switch your feet quickly, and do this 100 times!
