How to Get in Shape for Soccer Tryouts
Determine what position you want to play.
Understand the major requirements for each position.
- Striker(forward) or fullback(defender) should work on playing on one end of the pitch(field) to work on offense or defense.
- Halfback(midfielder),needs more stamina than a striker or a fullback because you have to play at both ends of the pitch.
- Goalie needs better reflexes, and need to be able to anticipate where a shot is going.
Work on every skill in case you need to play a different position.
Work on these exercises for strikers and fullbacks:
- Short sprints, such as to midfield and back.
- Push-ups to strengthen your muscles for throw-ins.
- Hop to work on your jumping and to strengthen your legs.
- Work on juggling the soccer ball,if you are trying out for striker, to work on ball-handling and shooting in different situations (1-on-1, 2-on-1, etc.)
- Work on running backwards, for a fullback, and how to tackle properly. To tackle is to make legal contact to separate the ball from the carrier.
Work on exercises for halfback(midfielder) that include longer sprints, juggling, shooting, tackling and running backwards.
Work on goalie drills that include shuffling, having someone roll/throw or kick balls at you to stop, and working on getting back to the goal before he shoots.
All positions should work on passing and basic dribbling.
