First Touch

YSI's First Touch Program is geared towards recreational and new soccer players to the sport who are still learning the basics and need that extra training to sharpen their skills.

Each session of our First Touch Program will have a component that works on developing basic motor skills. We will focus on players running, cutting and changing direction with the ball at their feet.  We will also help young athletes to develop reaction speed and acceleration without the ball.

The basic skills that our coaches will be teaching are:

  • Ball control and First Touch 

  • Passing and Receiving 

  • Dribbling

  • Running with the ball 

  • 1v1 Attacking and Defending​​

  • Shooting

  • Turning

  • Shielding

  • Crossing

  • Finishing

Future First Touch sessions to be announced soon!
