Top 5 Football Skills Every Child Must Know!

by Coach Kurtis

Here are 5 Football skills you can practice to help improve your game. It is important to have a large array of skills to call upon when you are in 1 v 1 situations. There are many Football skills out there that I could have mentioned but I chose to demonstrate these skills because I believe they are used regularly in the game.

Make sure you practice each skill using both feet as this will help you become less predictable in the game. Also as you go past the defender leave your arm out to keep the defender away from the ball.

Finally, if you happen to have a parent/buddy with you get them to hold two different coloured markers that you must call out every so often to test your awareness on the ball.


  • A ball
  • Markers and long cones
