Glenn Alpert: Hi, this is Glenn Alpert with Arlington Travel Soccer Club. Now, we are going to talk about using the first touch with the outside of the thigh. So, I have the soccer ball I am going to toss it up to myself, we are going to use the outside of the thigh to move laterally away from pressure. Notice I am not having it in the center, I am actually using the outside of the thigh, about where my stripes are on my shots. Okay, toss me the soccer ball Adam, once more.
So, I am able to move to the side. Now, Adam toss it to yourself, good. Now, William will toss you the ball stand about right here. Okay, ready now move with your first touch away from pressure. Let's do that again, ready. Once more, watch out Adam, where he actually moves to this side, very good that's better. Okay, one more time and then we are done. Okay, ready William, now move this way, one more time. Alright, next we are going to talk about using our chest with our first touch soccer training.
