Soccer is a sport unlike almost all others, as the feet are needed for technical skills more than the hands. Many fundamental skills are needed to play soccer, with advanced players able to build on the fundamental skills for more complex and precise dribbling, passing and shooting. Without mastering soccer fundamentals, you’re not getting anywhere in the game. If you think all that’s important are moves and fancy tricks then you’ll be left cleaning up a locker room not playing in the game.

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.
Players tend to think that this summer they are going to develop a new shot, five new moves, learn how to head and increase their strength. Although this might all sound fine you’ll end up mastering none of those if all done at the same time. Just as if you’re studying for an exam break up the skills one at a time and put all of your focus into one then move on to the next. This is the single best way to improve upon your soccer fundamentals.
It’s also easy to fall back into what you’re already good at and just keep doing it instead of failing at first and challenging yourself to develop another skill you’re not so great at. Remember, work on an area of improvement, one at a time.
Every player no matter the position needs to be physically fit and ready to play the game. Ever played 90 minutes unfit? There is honestly no worse torture then dragging yourself around the field praying for the final whistle. Constantly outdoing yourself and pushing yourself to higher and higher heights will give you a level of play you never thought possible.
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.
