    Glenn Alpert: Hi, this Glenn Alpert with Arlington Travel Soccer Club. We are going to talk about training with a partner and we are going to start with two touch passing exercise. So, guys what we are going to do, is I am going to pass the ball. We are going to go in a circle, we are all going to take, no more than two touches and no less than two touches, we have to take two touches. We are just going to pass it around. Okay, ready one, two.

    Okay, one, we want to take two touches, one, two; we are working on our first touch and then moving the ball, one and two. Now, let us make our first touch into space somewhere okay, so pass me the ball William, I will demonstrate the start. So, one, two, one, two, now we are using our first touch, one, two. I am going to just do with Adam, so we can see if you have only one training partner. Come in a little closer, okay, so we are on the ball, feet ready, take two touches, one, two, one, two, one, and two, one, two, okay very good.

    Now, we are going to go next to one touch passing with the partner
