Soccer Moves

Kidzworld has the 411 on how to do all the sick one-on-one soccer moves. This time around, we teach you how to lose your defender with the scissors move!

The Basics

Without good one-on-one moves in soccer you will have trouble scoring the ball. But before you can go out there and juke your opponents with fancy dribbling moves, you must get the basics down first. You must be able to handle the ball with all parts of your foot. You must also be able to control the ball, even when you are running or changing direction. Always protect the ball and be aware of the defenders around you. Try to keep your head up so that you can see where your open teammates are.

The Scissors

Once you are a good dribbler then you can start learning some basic one-on-one moves. This is important, because sometimes you have to be creative in order to get past your defender (especially if they're good). The scissors move is one of the basic, but very effective one-on-one move in soccer. From grade school to the pros, this move is used frequently to fake out the defense. The scissors move makes your opponent think you are going one way, when you are really going the other. Here are the steps to master this deadly move.
  • When you are dribbling towards a defender, make sure you just dribble with your left foot. Make sure your keep the ball close to you as you dribble, so you will have maximum control.
  • When you are confronted by the single defender, plant your left foot firmly on the ground next to the ball. Wind up your right leg as if you were going to kick it with your right foot.
  • Swing your right foot completely around without touching the ball. When your right foot lands, it should be parallel to your left foot.
  • Tap the ball with the outside of you left foot and start heading left with the ball. If this was done right, you will break free from your defender and your defender will be wondering what just happened.
  • Remember to keep accelerating after you make the move. You want to make this move fluid so that the defense won't have time to recover. Once you master this move, you can expand it to a variety of different versions of the scissors such as the double scissors, the reverse scissors and the scissors turn. But that is for another day, for now just focus on mastering this move so you can start scoring more goals!

    Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
