FIGURE 8 - Winning Foot Skills 2 • Ages 14-16

FIGURE 8 - Winning Foot Skills 2, Ages 14-16 Head coach for Hobe Sound Strikers, Henry Taramona, now challenges young athletes with the winning foot skills progression 2: Figure 8. Using one ball and only two cones, or whatever you have available, the player moves in a figure 8 rotation around the two cones. Keeping the ball close to the feet and making sharp turns as close to the cones without touching them, the player first uses only the inside of both feet and then progresses to only using the outside of the feet. We recommend practicing this drill often to perfect complete control of the ball when making sharp turns in a game.
