In order for players to receive and turn in any direction, they have to learn to use many parts of their body to control and propel the ball, such as the inside and outside of both their feet, their chest, both thighs, and the sole of their feet. But many of our players have not developed the repertoire, flexibility and body control to manipulate the ball in a 360° range.
