Of all the soccer skills, dribbling is the first — and most fundamental to ball mastery. But young soccer players and seasoned players alike benefit from practicing different ways to dribble the ball. As young players develop, they’ll master dribbling with their dominant and non-dominant foot, running with the ball, controlling the ball and keeping the ball close in all sorts of situations — first on their own, and then with the pressure of a defender.

These 10 soccer drills help  players develop their dribbling skills as they move up and down the field.
