How To Get The Most Use Out Of Your Football Flick Urban Skills Trainer

So, you’ve unboxed your brand spanking new Football Flick Urban Skills Trainer, but you’re sitting there wondering how to get the best results to improve your skills.

Well, we have a couple of validation drills that are proven to boost your control, touch and passing.

Control

Test

Continually pass the ball against the Angled Rebounder for 30 seconds or until either a misplaced attempt or mis-control. Maybe half volley or full volley from 1.5 metres.

Measure

The test measures how long the player can continuously volley or half volley the ball against the surface and how many successful attempts are made.

Benefit & Result

Continued application of this test measures and improves close control, reaction and repetitive muscle memory. Difficulty can be increased by:

  • Using weaker foot
  • Alternating between feet
  • Increasing the distance to the rebounder
  • Increasing the tempo and strengths of the attempts

Validated to improve close control by up to 73%


Passing

Test

Pass the ball 10 times using either foot from a 3 metre distance. Repeat for both the Curved Ramp and the Angled Rebounder, ensuring the ball is returned successfully to the player after each attempt.

Measure

The Accuracy is measured by the % of passes successfully returned and brought under control for both exercises.

Benefit and Result

Continued application of this test will improve the basic technique of performing a ground pass and lofted pass which is a basic skill in the game, both feet can be measured under separate tests and the difficulty can be increased by implementing the following adaptations:

  • Using just the strongest foot
  • Using just the weakest foot
  • Alternating between both feet
  • Using the outside of each foot as above
  • Increasing the distance from the unit
  • A variation on any of the above

 

Validated to improve Passing Accuracy by up to 29%


 

Touch

Test

Pass the ball from 2 metres away into the Curved Ramp using either foot and then control the return using either foot, chest or thigh. Complete 10 attempts and control the ball to the stationary position within a circular area of 2.5 metres in diameter of standing position.

Measure

Time the speed of ball control to rest and how many controls remain in the target circle. Aim to improve both speed and percentage of accurate controls.

Benefit & Result

Continued application of this test measures and improves ability and speed of control when making and receiving a controlled pass in a defined area. Difficulty can be increased by:

  • Using just the strongest foot
  • Using weaker foot
  • Alternating between feet
  • Increasing the distance to the rebounder
  • Reducing the diameter of the target circle
  • Concentrating on weakest method of control

Validated to improve the speed of touch by up to 45%
