How to Play Soccer : Passing Techniques in Soccer for Beginners

December 9, 2019

Okay next let’s talk about passing. That
is the fundamental part of the game. It is what you are going to be working on most.
There are two types of passing, short passing and long passing. Let’s first talk about
short passing. What you are going to want to do is get over the ball just over the ball
head to where you are going to pass the ball. You don’t want to be looking down; you want
to be looking where you are going to pass. Okay, your left foot or right foot planted
next to the ball and then move through real easy like that. The second type of pass is
a long pass for this type of pass you want to get a little loft on the ball get it in
the air so you are going to do a few things differently. Instead of being over the ball
like this when you strike it I want you to lean back slightly just a little bit when
you come through that way the ball is gonna just naturally float over. Let’s take a

    Over the top short passing style. Waste of time making the move so timely and letting your leg go so high.

  • Reply John Ervine October 10, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    theres more than just 2 types of passing, you don't always have time to use the inside of your foot, he doesn't talk about using outside of your foot and using your weaker leg to open the field up.

  • Reply Benjamiin91 June 30, 2009 at 1:57 pm

    Okey dude, I've played football all my life, and when you pass the ball, ofc you want to look at the player, but you have to look at the ball too, and when you kicked the ball in the air, you don't do the same as when you do a short pass. I don't know what's called in english, but u shoot longer up the foot. And if you want a straight forward pass. Use your wrist while leaning a bit backwards.

    Power, technique and practice.

    I recommend u guy to play football instead of watcin these vids.

  • Reply John Smith August 2, 2009 at 5:17 am

    you also need to make sure that your trying to pass at least 10 feat past the player you want the ball to go to, that way it gets to them quicker

    @butterpants87 any sport that uses an extension of your body i.e tennis, hockey, naturally requires more technique. however, soccer requires more finesse and aerobic endurance.

  • Reply getasimbe July 24, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    @butterpants87 ok so where exactly is the way more finesse. unless you're making 40 yard lofted passes in hockey, i don't see where you get this from. and i do watch hockey a bit too, and i admit it's more difficult than soccer. i think many sports are more difficult than soccer, and i play soccer.

    Wrong. that's not proper technique. I coach 13-17 year olds and 95% of them can't pass properly. Here's how we try to break it down.

    1. have the plant foot pointed to the target. This is basically what will make the ball go where you want it to go
    2. pick a surface to hit with (inside for beginning)
    3. get your chest behind the ball and parallel to the plane thru the ball
    4. hit foot (toe is pointed up ward and knee is locked)
    5. strike the ball
    6. transfer of weight (break the plane)
