05 Nov Footy is better with friends: Beast Mode Soccer’s buddy passing series

Beast Mode Soccer, one of a dozen Players First partners to date, has quickly established itself as an exciting component of the growing platform.

Focused on the Players First pillar of Player Development, Beast Mode Soccer created the Players First Video Training Series as its springboard. The first episode was unveiled during the Players First launch event at Nike World Headquarters nearly three months ago. Four episodes later, including a progression of four cone drills, the training series hit its stride with a string of buddy passing drills.

First came buddy juggling. Simple enough, right? Nope. Fast forward to a month and a week later when demonstrators Brooke Elby (University of North Carolina) and Karina Crystal (Mexico national team programming) showed how to do “Brazilian toe taps” in what was certainly the most challenging drill so far.

Stay tuned next week for the start of a new progression, and the join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #P1soccer.
