Using the dominant and recessive feet very well provides important advantages for the football players while playing football. Because of this; the importance of bilateral skill trainings for lower extremity in football has increased and footballers? using both of their feet very well has become necessary for them. 40 girls and 40 boys who have never involved in a football club exercise in Edirne have joined our exercise. The purpose of our project is to investigate the affects of the football skills which are gained after trainings between unilateral football training programmes and bilateral training programmes. A Renewed Waterloo Foot Choice Survey has been used to evaluate the students? tendency on foot choice. Three students from experimental group and one student from control group have joined the basic technical training programmes and their values of wall pass,dribbling, keepie uppie, shot on target have been compared. When pre test ? post test and post test permanency values after the trainings were compared, a significant difference was found between wall pass, cannon-ricochet and dribbling values (p<0.05). No significant difference was found when wall pass, dribbling and well directed shot to the target permanency values were compared (p>0.05). As a result of data obtained, scientific tests performed before the trainings planned to give football education to 11-12 age group children were repeated after trainings continued for two months; and when development scores of control and subject group students were compared with each other, it may be accepted that the football technique training given has provided a positive contribution to technical development process of the students and the development occurred is permanent as a result of this contribution.
