Ways to Get Into the Game

Everyone has those games where they're struggling or things just don't seem to be going right. You're just not at your best and in a bit of a funky. How do you get out of that and get into the game?

Let's look at some ways to break out of a slump and get involved in the game.

1.  Ask for the ball all the time. Put yourself in a position to receive the ball. Show that you want the ball and are there to help your team. This keeps you in the game and on your toes.

2.  Get the ball and give it. Try making a pass with the intention of getting it back. Seek out the ball and than play a few simple passes just so you get some touches on the ball. Spread the ball around and find the open player. Pass and move.

3.  Take people on. Dribble at people and go by them and take a shot or lay the ball off to a teammate at the last minute. Be active, not passive. Don't dribble in your defensive third but wait until you have a defender isolated and there's space behind the defender. Put yourself in a position to dribble at someone. This gets us to our next tip below.

4. Make a dangerous run. If you make a diagonal run across the field and into the attacking third it forces the defense to watch you and opens up areas for your teammates. And if you're open, and get the ball, you have the space and freedom to try something, since your in the attacking third.

5. Get stuck in. If you're not playing well, and feel like an outsider and not involved in the play, make a touch tackle and win the ball.

6. Don't take criticism personally. Consider whether someone’s advice or feedback could help you improve your game. They're usually just trying to motivate you.

7. Play with emotion. Try to pump up your team and get them going by encouraging them. And then sometimes you have to yell and scream and get into the game that way. Don't get a yellow or red card, but maybe even get upset at the referee or the linesman.
