Passing in soccer is one of the skills of soccer needed to be a great player. Passing in soccer with the inside of your foot involves a lot of technique. Watch the basic and advanced key points in this soccer training video.

This OSA soccer training video is geared for soccer players 5-8 years old and their coaches and parents. It of course can be applied to all ages.

Key Points:
1. Ankle Locked
2. Passing foot Toe Up not Down (create more surface area on ball)
3. Plant foot facing your Target

Exercise Soccer Player Can Do:
Pass with your partner focusing on technique. Do this for 1-2 minutes. Coaches look for technique adjustments.

Advanced Key Points:
1. Shoulders face target
Players tend to step to the ball, turn their body which now means their shoulders are facing away from target and plant foot is now away from the target. We need to fix this. Try holding their shoulders when they pass to force this. It's awkward for players at first to pass with correct technique because there bodies aren't naturally set up to move like this.

2. Power comes from bringing leg back
Players tend to push the ball when they are passing. Think of a golfer, do they take their club and hit a ball with out bringing their club back? No, same in soccer. The players leg needs to come back, generating power in the leg swing.

3. Power comes from Thigh, not calve.
Lots of players just move their knee down when passing. This is incorrect. The power is in the thigh so the knee down stays the same and it is the thigh that comes back and generates the power.

Exercise Soccer Player Can Do:
Have player stand behind the ball about one step away from it. Step to the ball, pause, showing leg back, ankle locked, toe up and swing through with power, and pause once they've hit the ball. Then repeat. This will help focus on technique. Then once player is getting more comfortable return to passing normally with out pausing through out the technique.

What Player Could Be Doing Wrong:
If the pass is going all over the place that typically means their shoulders are not facing the target. Almost 90 percent of the time if a player makes a pass off target if you have them pause they will see their shoulders are facing right where the soccer ball went.

If player is not generating enough power it is because their thigh isn't getting back enough. Remember, using your knee down for power is not correct. If their thigh stays in line with their non kicking foot, that is not correct. Make sure they step, legs open up, thigh is back so they can come through, this will generate more power.
