This is a great run for those that are transitioning from linear runs to cutting runs especially after injury.

One of the biggest drawbacks, I have noticed watching youth soccer practice is that amount of standing around that occurs. One method to limit this is designing conditioning that supplements what is going on in practice.

Defensive Juggling

This is an excellent drill as defenders are often found trying to volley or clear a bouncing ball during the game. This drill is used to improve balance, foot-eye coordination, as well as hamstring flexibility. In my career, I have seen many defenders injure their hamstrings while attempting to clear a bouncing ball. And I frequently use this drill as a great way for my athletes to adapt to the stresses of soccer.
