It's Time for Pre-Season Conditioning

It's seems kind of odd to be talking about pre-season. After all, we are expecting more accumulating snow over the weekend. However, with player registrations (click link at right) officially opening while the snow is falling, it's time to start getting ready for soccer.

Unless you've been playing indoor, chances are good that it's been a while since you've touched a soccer ball. The video below is great for getting better with ball control and foot skills.

We like this one because it can be done indoors and doesn't require a lot of space. It is called 1000 Touches, because if you follow the video, you will touch the ball 1000 times in under 10 minutes.

If your child does this drill just three times per week, you will be amazed at his or her improvement by the time the season begins.

Have fun with this one!!

Throw Back Thursday...to 2010

Saw this over on Glass City's website. It's too good to not share.

You remember the situation. It was the last game in the group stage at the 2010 World Cup. The United States needed a win to advance to the knock-out round. After 90 minutes, the game was still tied 0-0.

Then...Landon Donovan.
