Hi! I’m Mark Wilson from the United Soccer
Academy. We are here today with Expert Village. We are taking a look at some soccer techniques.
We are going to focus on how the goalkeeper punts the soccer ball. This normally happens
after the goal keeper has made a save and wants to get the ball up the field to attack
and go to all position goal. This is how we break down the technique. The goal keeper
has made a save, we then want to try and punt out. It is important to get the power cause
we need to make the distance. To do that the arm has to extend with the ball, and we want
to try and let the ball roll off of the our finger tips so we can step through with power,
striking the ball with our laces. Let’s show that. The ball comes in, make the save, take
a couple of steps and then punt, and that is how a goal keeper deals with a punt to
clear the ball to clear the ball out of his or her box.
