What is a feint? A feint is a deception of the opponent. We are communicating him an action that we do not want to carry out. The opponent does not realize this and just like that, he is inferior or put differently: we are doing theater, but reality looks different: recognizes the opponent the action as a feint, he is superior.

Why should I train feints?

Every soccer player loves the feints of the professional players on TV and everyone has tried to comprehend one or another of those feints. During games often looked upon as something one cannot make a living from, tricks and turns are always a highlight on the field.

But it is not for this reason alone, that this category came into existence. We could not put soccer feints into the categories “Dribbling” or “Feeling for the ball” because nothing trains the ball control more than learning feints. Feint training belongs clearly to soccer coordination training. That coordination training is supposed to be a permanent part of training should be familiar to you by now.

Especially in children’s soccer, it is easy for the coach to teach ball skills by teaching soccer tricks. It is clear that every player develops boundless ambition while learning tricks and turns and kids anyway. As a soccer coach, you should start – if you did not start already – teaching tricks.
