Your child LOVES soccer and wants to get better. However, you are a newbie who didn’t play soccer growing up. You are not alone, this is a challenge I and millions of other parents face every day.
So the choice is yours; pay an expensive trainer to work with your child on the fundamentals or invest some of your own time.
Even if you are lucky enough to afford private training, your child will benefit tremendously if you also help them along the way.
Also, is the trainer able to drive to your home for a five-minute session or play 1v1 against your child after school?
Don’t worry, Anytime Soccer Training puts everything you need in one place. So whether your child is a beginner or headed to an academy; we definitely have you covered.
Follow these simple steps and use our free or premium resources to get started.
#1 Find the Right Tool
Searching Youtube for random training videos is just not enough.
The problem is that:
- The videos are random and from different sources
- This means the formats are inconsistent
- They are rarely 100% follow-along
- The skill levels vary
- They don’t follow a logical progression
- They are often too long and include too much unnecessary talking
- There is no way to track your progress
Youtube is GREAT for inspiration and ideas, but your child needs a learning system that is easy to follow and goes step by step.
The Anytime Soccer Training videos are easy to use, 100% follow-along and give you everything you need in one place – and BTW, you can utilize every tip below for free (forever) by clicking here to join.
#2 Start with Ball Mastery
Players who are comfortable, confident, and creative with the ball are the players who possess the ball more and improve as a result. Ball Mastery is a great place to start because the sessions are relatively simple, and require little space and no equipment.

#3 Incorporate Aerial Control
Juggling improves all aspects of a player’s game including their first touch, balance, coordination, and aerial control. Another often overlooked benefit is that aerial training improves shooting and finishing techniques.
The problem is that team training is not enough and most players don’t practice juggling at home enough.
