It took a few tries, but my 6-year old has figured this out and it is helpful practice! The other day she brought it to soccer practice to use while waiting a while for the other kids to arrive and the other kids and parents expressed interest in how cool it looked and where to get. I was sold when my kiddo told me, "but Mom it's hard to kick with my left foot." Of course the coaches try to help the kids learn to use both feet, but "figuring out" on her own thar one side needs more practice, and then having a tool to work on that on her own is worth all the $.
We haven't watched the training videos yet, but I think that will be a great next step.
After a few uses it's holding up just fine. My child is able to strap the ball in and get belt attached on her waist. It cinches tight enough to stay on, but the end of the strap does flap out quite a bit since her waist is small (a very slender 6 year old).
Now my sons can play with their soccer balls in our yard. Thanks! We live on a very busy road and our cozy home is situated on a hillside so playing soccer here was out of the question. My son can now practice various skills and we need not worry about the ball going out into the street.
I purchased two of these soccer trainers for my son’s. They have been using them nonstop for the past four days and loving them, both are seven years old and new to soccer, so this is really helping them learn technique without having to run after the ball every five seconds. I super recommend for younger kids!!
Now onto the be careful part, for seven years old, there’s no worries in using this product. They don’t have enough power to injur themselves. However when dad who has played soccer all his life, uses it to show them how to punt, if you kick it really hard it’s going to fly back at you really hard (duh) resulting in the most painful jammed thumb of my life! So just bare that in mind. Use this for skills training not cranking up the power! If only I had it on video, would win America’s funniest lol.Yes I know you’re thinking well duh you moron, but when you’re playing around with the kids sometimes you don’t think of it .
Bought this for my son and he loves it! Great quality!
Lovely but of kit for my son. He loves going on it every now and again.
I was worried of ths string breaking but its actually quite strong, so great product overall.
I saw my friend's kid use this at soccer field. I think it's good to try. My son loves it so much. Will definitely get another one for outdoor.
Helpful and fun
I got this for my son who plays soccer. This really motivated him to practice and he can do it by himself without having to chase down a ball. What’s even better is that it takes the work out of it and it just becomes play. Once some of the neighborhood kids saw him playing with it they wanted to use it too. I think every soccer league should get these to help with practice. It’s super adjustable and fit my super skinny son and easily adjusted to fit the much heavier boy in the neighborhood. You really can’t go wrong with this if your kids enjoys soccer.
This was exactly what I was looking for. My nephew loves soccer but has a small yard and was constantly kicking it over the fence ;). This allows him to practice his big kicks without fear of loosing his ball. He is having a great time with it. Definitely recommend for backyard use and or at a soccer field (it's nice not to have to chase the ball). Ideal for kids who want to be outside to play but maybe don't always have someone to play with.
Five Stars and kids love it!
The soccer trainer fits our soccer ball at size 5 perfectly. Kids took it out and practiced with it and they all loved it!
Awesome for kids to practice kicking soccer balls without chasing them as much.
BTW, The product shipped much quicker than expected and is exactly as described.
Hours of fun!
My six year old loves this. His brother has no interest in soccer and this keeps him entertained without having to get his brother involved. The waistband is adjustable enough that he can wear it or I can.
Great practice tool for kids!
Got one of these for both my 8yo daughter and 11yo son. Fit both of them well. Both started using them right away. Only had them a week, so I don't know if they have improved their soccer skills much yet, but they both are eager to get outside and practice with them!
Best thing ever!!
Bought this for my 8 year to practice with in our back yard without it flying over the fence every 5 minutes. He works on juggling, juke moves, passing, throw ins- you name it. I love this thing and I'm sure our neighbors do too now that they don't have to return our soccer ball every time he practices. He also gets more practice time with the ball since he doesn't have to chase it every time he works on something. Highly recommend!!!!
Perfect for an avid soccer player!
Holding up great to almost daily use by an avid 11-year-old boy. Lets him practice to his heart's content even by himself, but personally, I love watching him! Great to get "other foot" training.
Solo Soccer Trainer
I bought this 3 weeks ago and my grandsons love it i no longer have to worry about them running out in the road to get their footballs also they love not having to chase the ball but have so much control over the ball and it fits comfortable best thing they have had this summer
Very helpful easy for training and good control on my daughters technique just got my second one delivered THANKS!!!!!!

Perfect. Very fast shipping. Thank you seller.
After few weeks of use, maybe 5-10 times, still in one piece. I was sure it would brake, but seems to be good enough quality.
Good comunication , servis, and price
