How to Kick a Soccer Ball : How to Shoot a Soccer Ball with Power

September 8, 2019

Hi! I’m Mark Wilson from United Soccer Academy.
We are here today with Expert Village and we are going to take a look at the mechanics
of shooting a soccer ball. The first thing that we are going to look at, we are going
to look how we shoot a soccer ball maximizing power. When we do this we strike using our
laces. Let me just demonstrate with a stationary ball here. Our non kicking foot is placed
to save the ball, and we have our arm out here, our knee over the ball, and as we follow
through our toes pointed down, we strike through the middle of the ball, and we line on the
kicking foot. It is important and we will just show that again, it is important that
we follow through, because that is where our power comes from. So again non kicking foot
will save the ball, arm out here, that gives us balance, and we strike through the ball
and we land on that foot to max out power. Let’s show that with our demonstrators. A
nice powerful shoot. We see that one more time. So two powerful shots from our demonstrator
there. Her head is over the ball, we have our non kicking foot beside the ball, and
we strike through using our laces through the middle of the ball to maximize power,
and we land on a non kicking foot. And that is how we have a powerful shot in soccer.
