SKILL TESTS FOR FOOTBALL
It is important to conduct skill testing in addition to
fitness testing to determine the skill level of the player, so
appropriate skill drills can be incorporated into the training
sessions, and possibly individualized training for those
lacking certain skills.
There are some standard soccer skills tests and also many
other variations that coaches use around the world.
