Hey guys. Matt here from Epic Soccer Training.
I want to take you through the basics of how to curve a soccer ball. OK, guys. Welcome to sunny California, North
Hollywood. We’re in Glendale right now shooting this. Beautiful weather out. I wish the wind
was going this way but it’s not. So I’m going to show you how to curve a soccer ball and
how to kind of do it the right way. When you think of curved soccer ball, you’re thinking
more of just going left to right or right to left. We’re going to get into more bending
which is kind of going to have that top spin as well. But the basics of how to curve a soccer ball
is simply like passing. It’s the same fundamental. So you want to hit the ball with kind of like
right on this part of your foot and you kind of want to bring your foot around. So a normal
pass, if I was passing you a normal pass, would be just straight through the back of
the ball and forward. When you’re thinking of bending or curving a ball, you’re going
to kind of come out and you’re going to hit on the outside of the ball so you’re going
to put that little spin on it. And if you just touch the ball simply with a normal pass,
it’s going to have the backspin but when you curve it, it’s going to kind of have this
little left to right or right to left spin, whichever foot you are. I’m a lefty so I’m
going to show you a little bit here. So what I want to do with curving and again,
you can do some curving on the ground. It’s a little bit of a short field here so bear
with me but you’re going to come like onto the ball at kind of an angle so you want to
come at a 45-degree angle. When I’m just simply passing the ball, I’m coming on more straight.
But for a curve, you actually want to get more of an angle. See? And it will have that curve on. You’re not
going to see a whole lot of curve because we’re pretty close to the goal. Let’s see
if I can kind of get in the air a little bit. See? So you will see a little bit of curve
again and the wind is kind of going against us here but that’s the basics is you want
to be able to hit it with the inside of your foot on the very, very outside of the ball
and then you want to bring your leg around. You kind of want to bring your leg almost
across the body because that’s what’s going to give it a little bit of curve here. So again, it’s going to be hard to tell but
you’re going to see that spin and that’s what’s going to be good. So here we go, Chas. See,
he has got a little curve there or a little bit of spin. Again it’s going to be almost
impossible to tell this quick unless I blast one. So again, you’re going to see that little
spin where it’s going to kind of tuck it away. When you’re doing more bending, that’s when
you’re going to actually get more of that curve that’s going to go from up all the way
down right or if you’re a righty, it’s going to go up and then down to the left which I’m
going to explain a lot about. But a lot of the problems that people have
with how to curve a soccer ball is they’re not getting enough power on it and what they’re
doing is they’re actually hitting the ball too far over on the outside of the ball where
you want to hit it here and you want to follow through and push it. So when you follow through and push it, it’s
going to have that little kick. Again when you’re passing the ball, when you’re reaching
a high level and playing professional soccer like I did, you want to make sure that you’re
actually getting a lot of speed on the ball. I would say that’s one of the main things
where people mess up is when they get to higher levels, they’re not used to the quickness
of pace and part of the quickness of pace is having very, very driven balls or having
some that have a lot of a I guess a lot of power behind it. So even if you’re doing a simple pass, you
should put a little nice trap, Chas. You should put a little bit of a power behind it and
the same is true with chipping and the same is true with curving. You want to make sure
that you’re not just giving it like this little curve like that. You actually want to make
sure that you got some pretty good pace on it. So again, that’s just kind of how and that
works for shots too because one of the things that I like doing is I like bending the ball
away from the goalie. Sixty-five percent of all goals are scored by placing the ball.
It’s something I teach in my course but you don’t always need to go crazy. But a curve
is good for that type of shot or bending it around the side down the field to your forward
that’s coming on to it. So again, that’s just the basics of how to
curve a soccer ball. We’re going to teach you some other stuff as well. So make sure
