DEFENSIVE HEADERS - Winning Soccer Skills, Ages 14-16
UEFA Coach Henry Taramona dives into teaching defensive aerial headers in order to protect one’s goal in this Winning Soccer Skills series. With three players all three paces apart, the middle player starts with the ball in hand. Tossing the ball to one of the outside players, that player must head the ball -imitating a defensive clearance in a game- over the middle ...player and into the hands of the third player. The player working on their defensive headers must focus on having their feet in a sidestance and pushing off their back foot for optimal power. This drill can be done at any safe location, practicing often, either before or after practice for best results.
