I’m learning to play soccer and I’m loving the journey so far.
Well like it or not, the answer is practice. Watching Youtube soccer tutorials helps as well. 😉
Seems the problem with adult rec soccer is most adults never practice, they only play games. Which is what I have been doing. You really just need to practice ball handling minimally in your house while watching TV and hopefully outside in some more relaxed environment than the high pressure adult rec games… LOL.
You can practice on basic touch skills here:

You need to be able to do some moves with zero pressure around an imaginary defender before you can do a lot of things on a live defender. I have allot of practicing to do!
Good luck to any of my fellow beginner adult soccer players and have fun!
