Simeon’s Answer

Aside from the obvious need to practice and be excellent at the actual soccer skills themselves, you'll want to seek out teams and coaches that will take your soccer development seriously. It usually isn't enough to get this kind of assistance being a part of the school team. You'd need to be on private clubs and teams that will give you the chance to experience intense competition, even during the off-season. To be even more hard-core about improving, you could have someone take video of you playing competitive soccer. Make sure not to have it zoom in on you too hard; you'll want to have an idea of how the players around you are positioning. Review the video with someone who knows soccer and ask for honest feedback. Being good at soccer is more than just shooting and ball control. You'll have to understand how to read the flow of players on the field and see weaknesses in both teams in time to deal with them. Resist the urge to blame your mistakes on others. Lastly, don't forget to analyze your decisions when the ball is nowhere near you.

Mitchell’s Answer

To play soccer all you need is a ball and a soccer goal. When just getting started you can make up a field with goals using cones. It’s a good idea to practice dribbling the ball. The idea is to control the ball so your opponent can’t get it and you can kick it in the goal.

To play just get a ball and use 2 garbage cans as your goal. I had a friend that used to use a small ball and started doing tricks while kicking it around to be able to handle the ball. I would try YouTube and search for something like How to handle a soccer ball.

Practice and practice and practice some more. My son played soccer for 8 years. He would grab the ball as soon as her got home from school and dribble it around the yard. He set targets up and kicked the ball into targets. He found friends also interested in soccer and practiced shooting the ball back and forth. Argelys's suggestion of finding You Tube drills is great.
