Soccer Receive

(aka "Trap"). Receiving the ball used to be called "trapping" the ball, but today most people use the term "receiving". Receiving is a very important skill that every coach should teach. A player can "receive" the ball on a pass or a loose ball. The ball is usually received with the foot (inside, outside, top or bottom), but it can also be received with the chest, head, thigh, or any part of the body except the arms (the definition of "arm" is the movable part of the arm up to where the arm joins the shoulder). See "Trap" and "Hand Ball". I strongly recommend you teach "Passing to Space" and "Aggressive Receiving" -- Passing to Space is easier for beginning players and will result in much better ball movement, better ball possession, use of Open Space and "field vision". Aggressive Receiving is a better way to teach receiving and will result in a big improvement in your players and their ability to retain the ball.
