You should encourage your soccer players to talk to each other on the soccer field. There are some typical soccer terms that are used in certain circumstances. Some of these are:
“Soccer Time” – Means a defender is not nearby & the ballhandler has time to dribble or look for a pass. (i.e., don’t rush a play).
“Soccer Keeper” – The goalkeeper might yell this to let teammates know they should move aside & let him have the ball (i.e., so he can pick it up or catch a shot)
“Back” or “Drop” – Would be yelled by a “trailer” to let a teammate with the ball know that he has support behind him & can play the ball backward if needed.
“Soccer Carry” – Continue to dribble the ball.
“Pop It” – “Pass To Yourself”.
“Send it” – Send a Through Soccer Ball.
“Switch” – (See “Switch”)
- “Soccer Man On” (See “Man On”)
The most useful of the above in Soccer is “Keeper”. It’s hard to teach these. Perhaps the best thing is to introduce them by U-10 or U-12 & encourage talking in general. Small-sided games encourage talking & are another reason they are so beneficial. (See “Show For The Ball”).
Another soccer word for soccer dribble. (See “Verbal Signals“).
