One of the most popular soccer tricks is the rainbow. To do a rainbow, you need to be able to keep the ball in the air while you move your feet. This can be difficult to do at first, but with practice you’ll be able to do it easily.
How to do a rainbow in soccer
Here’s how to do a rainbow:
- Start by kicking the ball up into the air.
- As the ball starts to come down, quickly move your foot from one side of the ball to the other, making sure to keep your foot underneath the ball.
- When your foot makes contact with the ball on the other side, quickly kick it back up into the air.
- Continue this motion until you’ve made a complete circle with the ball.
- As you get better at this soccer trick, you can try doing it with two balls. Start by kicking one ball up into the air, and then as it comes down, kick the second ball up. Keep alternating between the two balls until you’ve made a complete circle.
The benefits of making a rainbow in soccer
Doing a rainbow in soccer can be a great way to show off your skills. But it’s also a useful trick to know because it can help you keep the ball under control when you’re dribbling. If you can do a rainbow while you’re running, it’ll be much easier to keep the ball close to your feet and avoid losing possession.
Rainbow drills for improving your skills
If you want to improve your soccer skills, try doing some rainbow drills. Here are a few drills that you can try:
1. Rainbow dribbling
This drill is great for improving your ball control and dribbling skills. To do this drill, start by placing a row of cones or other markers on the ground. Then, dribble the ball around the cones, making sure to do a rainbow kick each time you reach a cone. As you get better at this drill, you can try increasing the number of cones, or adding obstacles such as other players or balls.
2. Rainbow passing
This drill is great for improving your passing accuracy. To do this drill, have two players stand in front of each other, about 10 yards apart. One player will start with the ball, and will pass it to the other player using a rainbow kick. The player receiving the ball should try to control it with their first touch, and then pass it back to the other player. The players should continue passing the ball back and forth, using rainbow kicks, until they’ve made 10 passes.
3. Rainbow shooting
This drill is great for improving your shooting accuracy. To do this drill, set up a goal with two cones or other markers placed about 10 yards apart. Then, have one player start with the ball and try to score by shooting between the cones using a rainbow kick. The player should try to make as many shots as possible in a minute, and then switch with the other player.
4. Rainbow juggling
This drill is great for improving your ball control skills. To do this drill, start by kicking the ball up into the air and then catching it with your foot. As you get better at this, try doing it with two balls, or even three balls. You can also try doing this drill while you’re moving, such as running or dribbling.
5. Rainbow relay race
This drill is great for improving your coordination and speed. To do this drill, set up a course with cones or other markers placed about 10 yards apart. Then, have two teams of players line up at the start of the course. The first player from each team will start by dribbling around the cones, and then passing the ball to the next player in line using a rainbow kick.
