In this clip we are going to talk about shooting.
There are many different ways you can shoot the ball. But we are going to focus on two.
One is using the instep of your foot. And this is basically used for placement. This
is so you can put the ball to the left, to the right, maybe a little up in the air, and
up into the corners or what-not. We are also going to be talking about using your laces.
And what this does is it generates a lot of power. It might not be as accurate but if
you kick it with your laces and get good contact on it, the goalie has a lot less time to react
to your shot. So a shot that is not as accurate can still get by the goalie whereas using
your instep is much more accurate pinpoint, but just not as much power. Now when kicking
with your instep, what you want to do is approach the ball with your foot opens so you can direct
the ball corner to corner. When you kick with your laces, you want to make sure that you
land on your kicking foot, as demonstrated. Along with shooting with your feet, you can
also use your head. Now you can use either the front of your head or the back of your
head; it doesn’t really matter. Also, beyond using maybe just like your legs obviously,
you can use any part of your body like in here: your chest, like the very upward top
part of your shoulder; and you can’t use any part of your arms, so pretty much where your
shoulder starts you know you can’t really use any of that. But like I said, top of the
shoulders and your head and anything down here can also be used to score.
