FootworX - Special FX for your feet!

 

Record and measure your foot skills to become a better soccer player.

USA has developed a unique and innovative system to record and measure technical ball skills for players of every age and ability. There are currently 19 FootworX skills to master and test yourself on. Every time you complete the test, simply record your scores with USA and find out how skillful you are compared to other players that take the test.

Learning the skills are easy. Simply follow the test requirements for each activity and begin the path to ball mastery!

FACT: All travel teams trained by USA perform the FootworX skills at the beginning of every training session.

  • Skills will be performed in 5x5yd grids.
  • Each skill will be tested for 20 seconds.
  • Record FootworX scores on our player test sheet or complete an entire team test sheet.
  • Enter each player’s score into USA’s FootworX database to see how they compare.
  • USA recommends practicing the skills at least twice per week and testing 3 times per season.

Toe Taps
With the ball remaining stationary you must touch the top of the ball with the sole of your feet using alternate feet as many times as possible. You must start again if you lose control of the ball. Each touch on the ball counts as 1 point.
Box Balls
Using the inside of your feet, tap the ball back and forth between your legs as many times as possible. You must start again if you lose control of the ball. Each touch on the ball counts as 1 point.
Scissors
With the ball remaining stationary you must perform a scissor around the ball using alternate feet. You must start again if you touch the ball at any point. Each completed scissor with either foot counts as 1 point.
Sole Rolls
Each player works either side to side or top to bottom in their grid. You must always face the same direction whilst performing this skill. Each player must role the ball sideways with the bottom of one foot then stop the ball with the inside of their other foot. This must be performed in a walking motion ensuring you touch the ball with each foot before it lands on the ground. You must start again if you lose control of the ball or do not complete the skill as described above. Each time a player reaches the side of their grid they score 1 point.
Drag Backs
As above but each player must use the sole of their feet to move the ball backwards. Again you must take a touch on the ball with each foot before your foot touches the ground. You must start again if you lose control of the ball. 1 point is scored each time you reach the side of your grid.
Ball Maneuver 1
Outside, outside: Player must use the outside of their feet to maneuver the ball side to side. Using your right foot touch the ball to the right using the outside of your foot twice. Repeat using left foot. A point is scored each time the ball changes direction. You must start again if you touch the ball with the inside of your feet or you lose control of the ball.
Ball Maneuver 2
Outside, outside, inside: Each player must use this sequence to maneuver the ball side to side. Using your right foot, touch the ball to the right with the outside of your foot twice and then touch the ball with the inside of your right foot in the opposite direction. Repeat with your left foot. You must start again if you lose control of the ball or you do not use the correct sequence. 1 point is scored each time the ball changes direction using the inside of your feet.
Ball Maneuver 3
Inside, inside, outside: Each player must use this sequence to maneuver the ball from side to side. Using your right foot touch the ball to the left using the inside of your foot twice, then using the outside of your right foot touch the ball in the opposite direction. Repeat with your left foot. You must start again if you lose control of the ball or you do not use the correct sequence. 1 point is scored each time the ball changes direction using the outside of your feet.
Ball Maneuver 4
Outside, outside, Cruyff: Each player must use this sequence to maneuver the ball side to side. Using your right foot, touch the ball to the right with the outside of your foot twice and then perform a Cruyff turn back through your legs and onto the outside of your left foot. (To perform a Cruyff turn, extend your right foot around the ball and then push it back towards your left foot using the inside of your right foot.  Repeat with your left foot. You must start again if you lose control of the ball or you do not use the correct sequence. 1 point is scored each time the ball changes direction using the Cruyff turn.
Juggling – one bounce alternate feet
Each player records how many juggles they can achieve. The ball is allowed to bounce once between each touch. A point is only recorded when the player uses their feet. A player can use other body parts i.e. head, thighs etc but these will not count towards their score. The player must alternate feet to record a score. For example you cannot complete three juggles using the same foot. If a player loses control of the ball or use the same foot twice they must start again from zero. The highest score in the time allowed is recorded.
Juggling – no bounce alternate feet
As above but the ball is not allowed to bounce. Again points can only be scored using your feet and the touches must alternate from left to right foot. You must start again if the ball bounces or you use the same foot twice. The highest score in the time allowed is recorded.
Dribbling – preferred foot
Players dribble in a figure of 8 formation around 2 cones set 5 yards apart using their preferred foot. There are 4 positions during the sequence that a player scores a point. Each time the player successfully dribbles around one of the end cones is 1 point. Each time the player dribbles the ball across the center of the area between the two cones they score a point. 4 points will be recorded in total each time they successfully complete the sequence. Players must start again if they lose control of the ball, the ball touches one of the cones or they touch the ball with their non preferred foot.
Dribbling – non-preferred foot
Same as above but the player must use their non preferred foot.
Turning – inside of the foot
Players complete the same sequence as the dribbling exercise. Each player is only allowed to use the inside of their feet when dribbling around the end cones. Players must start again if they use the outside of their foot when turning, lose control of the ball or hit a cone.
Turning – outside of the foot
As above but players must use the outside of their feet when turning.
Samba Touches
Similar to toe taps. Players must touch the top of the ball with the bottom of their right foot, then the bottom of their left foot (same as toe taps). The third touch must be made by bringing your right foot around the back of your left foot and touching the ball. You then repeat the sequence beginning with your left foot. The ball should remain stationary. Each touch is 1 point. Players must start from zero if they lose control of the ball or do not complete the sequence correctly.
Lace Touches – non-preferred foot
Players must push the ball forward with the laces of their non-preferred foot then stop the ball with the sole of their non-preferred foot before it completes one full rotation. Each touch with your laces is recorded as one point. Players must start again if they lose control of the ball or use their preferred foot.
Lace Touches – preferred foot
As above but using your preferred foot.
Lace Touches – alternate feet
As above but players must use alternate feet to perform the exercise. Players must start from zero if they lose control of the ball or use the same foot twice in a row.
