    Explanation
    When playing soccer, it is most important to be constantly moving to space. This means positioning oneself in areas of the field where there is open space, away from opponents, in order to receive a pass or create opportunities for teammates. By constantly moving to space, players can provide options for their teammates, maintain good positioning, and increase the chances of being involved in the game. This also allows for better ball control and decision-making as players can adjust their positions based on the flow of the game.

    Correct Answer
    C. Be on the ground
    Explanation
    When passing the ball to your teammate, it is generally recommended for the ball to be on the ground.

      The toe of your foot

    Correct Answer
    C. The inside of your foot
    Explanation
    When receiving a pass from a teammate, it is generally recommended to use the inside of your foot. This allows for better control and accuracy when trapping the ball. Using the inside of the foot provides a larger surface area to make contact with the ball, reducing the chances of it bouncing off or going in the wrong direction. It also allows for better manipulation of the ball, enabling the player to quickly change direction or make a pass to another teammate.

    Correct Answer
    A. Move to space
    Explanation
    Moving to space after passing the ball to your teammate is the correct answer because by doing so, you create open areas on the field where you can potentially receive a return pass or find yourself in a better position to support your team. Moving to space also helps to create passing options for your teammate and makes it more difficult for the opponents to mark you effectively. This allows for better team coordination and increases the chances of maintaining possession and creating scoring opportunities.

    Correct Answer
    B. Turn away from the opponents and find space
    Explanation
    When there are several opponents right in front of you while dribbling the ball, it is advisable to turn away from them and find space. This allows you to create distance from the opponents and potentially open up passing lanes or create opportunities for yourself or your teammates. By turning away from the opponents, you can also avoid losing possession of the ball or being tackled by the opponents. Finding space gives you more time and options to make a decision and continue the play effectively.

    What is the first and most IMPORTANT rule of good defense?

    • A.

      Steal the ball from your opponent

    • B.

      Keep your opponent on their half of the field

    • C.

      Always stay 5 yards from your opponent

    • D.

      Pressure ball

    Correct Answer
    D. Pressure ball
    Explanation
    The first and most important rule of good defense is to pressure the ball. By putting pressure on the ball, defenders can disrupt the opponent's attack and force them into making mistakes or giving up possession. This allows the defending team to regain control of the ball and prevent the opponent from creating scoring opportunities. Pressuring the ball also helps to limit the opponent's time and space, making it harder for them to make accurate passes or take shots on goal.
