Soccer drill procedure

The Flickball is a simple trick which also exists as 180 degree turn. In our animation, the execution is limited to around 90 degrees. Speed will be added only after the movement has been mastered.


From the momentum of movement the ball is brought around the standing leg with the other foot. The speed may vary, unlike the other sequences in the “Tricks” category. Slow dribbling and fast change of direction. Fast dribbling and slow change of direction or full speed during the entire action: all is possible, all can be practiced.


- Always train using both legs!
- Practice the trick with a passive defender

Soccer coach tips
