To be honest with you, the most important thing when dribbling/running with the ball is that you keep it close to your feet at all times. I’m sure you know about Lionel Messi…..he is a master of this, if you watch him the ball is never more than a couple of inches away from his feet.

One way to improve this is by setting up a series of cones on the ground, and just constantly practice dribbling in and around them keeping the ball under control at all times. Using both feet, and getting used to keeping your eye on the ball to begin with, and then once you grow in confidence it will feel more natural and you can then begin to look up as you are dribbling.

It’s important also to mix up the way you set up the cones. Set up say 10 cones in a straight line……. 1 yard apart and just take it slow. It’s about keeping control of the ball first and the best way to do this is start off slow…….once you have mastered keeping the ball under total control, this will come naturally to you, and whether you are doing it slowly, or at full pace……it wont matter!

Then after that set them up in a zig zag formation etc. etc. just to get you going in different directions and getting used to using both feet.

I hope this is some help to you!!!

Good luck 😀
