It’s that time of the year again, with travel teams, summer workouts, swollen ankles and GOALS!
And with school out, kids are kicking it into full gear with soccer tournaments, practices, and even summer camps.
For those kids who want to get a leg up on their competition -- either their teammates or their competitors -- KSAT Kids now offers some soccer skill videos thanks to San Antonio Sports. These videos can help your child develop their best Pelé skills.
In the videos, Coach Michael Lahoud will teach the basic skills of soccer, including dribbling techniques, passing and shooting.
Coach Michael was a 2007 NCAA Champion at Wake Forest University and a former MLS player for Chivas USA and the Philadelphia Union.
The drills can be done anywhere, and often by using household objects like water bottles or cones in addition to a soccer ball.
Those interested can click on the video above to view both an introduction and a warmup to get started. The multiple videos below are grouped into the different skills to better help your child develop.
Be sure to tune into GMSA at 9 a.m. on weekdays on KSAT 12 for more KSAT Kids content.
