The ability to handle the ball well is the most important skill in the game. You shouldn’t have to think too hard about dribbling the ball if you practice a lot. A good way to improve this skill is through dribbling drills.
Passing is a skill that basketball players must master. There are two basic ways to pass. One is a chest pass in which you throw the ball to your teammate without it bouncing. The second is a bounce pass, in which you bounce the ball once when throwing it to your teammate. This is the hardest pass for a defender to intercept.
The shooters get a lot of the glory, and they are obviously critical to the game. But you don’t want to be in a situation where people are blocking your shots or you miss a lot of them. That will land you on the bench.
I’ll take a less talented player with bags of confidence over a more talented player that thinks little of themselves and their teammates any day of the week. Despite contrary belief confidence is a skill, and can be nurtured and developed over time through practice and repetition. Pro’s at the highest-level use different confidence building techniques to get that slightest edge of the competition. Forget about “I think I can” and “KNOW YOU CAN”. Above all technical or physical attributes confidence is as important as any of the other soccer fundamentals if not more so for those who want to play pro.
If you’re not enjoying what you’re doing, than why are you doing it? To be successful in anything there must be an inner passion and joy that comes out of doing it or getting results from it. If practice seems like a drag or you’re just looking forward to the post game match activities you may want to question why you play the game. Maybe it’s not the team culture you want to be a part of or maybe you’ve lost the spark. If it’s not fun, then it’s not worth putting yourself through a miserable and unrewarding experience.
