  • Love for the game (this is the most important ingredient)
  • Soccer boots
  • Turf shoes (if you plan to play indoors)
  • Soccer ball (at least one)


Make a schedule and try to designate at least 30 minutes of your time towards practicing soccer every day.

Put on your shoes, get your ball and run to the field.

Since you have run to the field, you are already warmed up.

But you should still stretch to avoid injuries.

Now start off by feeling the ball with your feet and get used to moving the ball with your feet. You will have problems balancing but its’s totally normal. With enough practice you will be comfortable with the ball under your feet.

Use BOTH of your foot to control the ball, as playing with just one foot will make you “one footed”; One footed soccer players are extremely predictable in the field.

Practice to pass, dribble and shoot the ball everyday as these are the basics of the game.

If you follow these instructions, you should have the basics of the sport down within a month.

Learning the basics is the most important step to become a good player


Drink lots of water and eat healthy food. Drinking will replenish the lost water from playing and eating healthy will improve your performance in the field. Welcome to the “beautiful game”
