Top 3 Potent Sales Methods

Top 3 Potent Sales Methods

Soccer, or football as it is known across other regions of the world, is the most played and watched sport in the world. According to FIFA, the 2018 edition of the World Cup had over 3.5 billion views with the demographic ages 4 and older. With so many players involved in the sport, the field has grown more competitive with each passing day. If you are looking to delve straight into the sport and get on the field, there are some prerequisites you should know before you kick your first ball. 

Learn all the positions and select one that best suits you:

In soccer, there are three main areas of the pitch you play: defense, midfield, and attack. Within these areas, there are designated positions including center-back, central midfielder, striker, and so forth. It’s important to learn beforehand what each position entails and start off with a position you feel most comfortable in, 

Begin with simple skills: 

After you have learned the various positions of soccer, now comes the time where you apply what you learned onto the pitch. Take some time to understand the ball by kicking it about, while practicing some basic skills including ball control, dribbling, shooting, and passing. The skill that must be mastered first is ball control. While shooting and dribbling are more exciting than ball control, you may not be able to use any of those skills if you can’t control the ball or lose it too easily. 

Work on your physical fitness: 

Once you’ve become comfortable with the four basic skills listed above, it’s now time to focus on fitness. Since soccer includes a lot of movement on and off the ball with running, almost all soccer players at least run 5 miles during the 90 minute period. To have better stamina and endurance to do short sprints and run with the ball, it is essential to focus on short 100m sprints and endurance running such as running a 5k. 

Join pickup games in your community:

Playing soccer with your friends or locals in the community is a great way to apply all the skills you have learned thus far. Playing by yourself to master the 4 basic skills and increase your endurance is beneficial, but it is crucial to apply these principles with other people since soccer is a team sport.
