4. Practice makes permanent
No matter the level of the player, there is always room for technical improvement and it is often hard for the player to know themselves what needs correcting and what they should be doing differently. If a player unknowingly repeats an action or a touch on the ball with bad form, then they will find it difficult to correct this. However, in a 1-on-1 coaching environment, the coach is able to spot bad technique quickly and correct it. This means that mistakes can be explained to the player in detail, so that they have a better understanding of the correct form and work on repeating good habits. Learn and refine new techniques – Technical football is an area that is often over looked in team training but it is a vital component of a soccer player’s makeup. 1on1 soccer training and individual soccer practice is great for mastering skills that can be difficult to master in a game situation. Learning core ball mastery, first touch, turning techniques and ball striking along 1v1 domination are examples of where 1on1 soccer training will really benefit the footballer.
