How To Do A Soccer Volley – Tips To Better Your Soccer Volleys

How to Do a Soccer Volley Hey guys, Matt here from Epic Soccer Training.
Welcome to this video where I want to teach you how to do a soccer volley. OK guys. One of the big things that is harder
to start perfecting when you get better and really reach that next level is actually how
to do a proper soccer volley. So I want to teach you how to do a soccer volley right
now. So I’m going to pull Chas on here. Give him
some thumbs up. He’s pretty much working on one knee but that’s a whole another story
of tearing the what was it? MCL, PCL or something like that? He’s not doing well. But anyway, he’s going to teach us a little
bit of how to do a volley or what? Yeah, I guess I’m teaching how to do a soccer volley.
So what a volley is, just for the basics, I’m sure most of you guys know. So don’t worry
about correcting all this but anyhow, there’s like two different volleys you can do. One
is a full volley. One is a half volley. When people talk about a full volley and we’re
going to do more of a specific video on a half volley and one on a full volley full
volley is when you’re taking the ball straight out of the air before it hits the ground,
so anything like that. OK, ready. Half volley is actually when you let the ball
take a bounce. Preferably it’s like one bounce but anyway, so it’s kind of you take that
hop and that’s a whole another technique that you need to learn because that’s a lot of
timing but again full volleys as well, a lot of timing. So a good way to start out doing this with
a partner or go against a wall and learn how to do this, is actually to just drop the ball
and what you want to do is you know, let’s start off with doing kind of a full volley,
is you actually want to have your knee above the ball. The reason is because if you hit
the ball up here, see how your knee is not above the ball? Well when I do that, this
is what happens. The ball goes over Chas’ head and obviously if you’re going on target,
you want to keep the ball down because you just have about eight and a half feet right
there. So again, what you’re doing is take a step,
drop the ball and really get your feet over it, get your knee over it. What you’re going
to start doing probably is leaning forward and driving through because again you want
to keep the ball down and it’s kind of hard to just do it like that. But again, keep working on that. Go both feet.
I’m going to start rocking on that a little bit. So have them just go back and forth and
you see how it’s just that low-driven ball. Again, if it’s farther out grab that ball
too. If it’s farther out, what you want to do is let the ball drop. You’re going to get
that top spin so that’s how a lot of times when people are coming on to the ball, they’re
driving it over a wall. They’re over a player and it just dips down because you have that
top spin. So again what you want to do is work on just
that simple kick then get over it. Work on the form before you start doing the power.
Then what you want to do is, Chas, ball in hand, start throwing them at me at both sides.
Just have a partner throw it at you and really what that’s going to do is that’s what’s going
to help your timing. So again, you know the timing when you drop
it. You’re going to get that pretty quickly but when someone else is throwing it or the
ball is crossed, what you’re going to do is you’re going to want to get your ball, center
of the ball, kind of towards the top and really drive it through. So again if you’re using both feet, get your
arms out to balance and see, that one is a little high. There’s a little half volley
for you. So again, drive through and once you get good, then you’re going to be taken
them from oh, here’s a crossbar. You’re going to be taking them from farther out and then
we’re going to start getting into how to do a full volley when it’s crossed and your timing
on that and you’re going to need to come around. So again, this is the basic technique of how
to do a soccer volley. We’re going to get into more advanced stuff but this is the basics
you guys can work on. So go ahead. Leave me a comment. Let me know

  1. Hey awesome videos there..
    I would like to know what options should a winger keep on his mind when he has a defender running almost parallel to him.
    Coz mostly when u play as a winger u have ball at your feet with lots of free space, n the defenders just prefer to stay parallel to our run, so a video would do just great for improving the wingplay..

  2. hey man ive been looking at your videos for quite a time now and i love your tips and drills!!! and i went to that link in your description and i wanna become the best i can be!!! i wanna play varsity for my highschool so do you think i should buy it?? please give me an answer thank you!

  4. Hey Epic Soccer Training, ive only just got to ure channel and its epic! its really good and really usefull. I was wondering if u could do some videos (u might have already but i havent checked) on the position CDM (centre defensive midfield) This is the position i play, i actually play CM but i usually play more of a defensive role because im one of the key tacklers in the team. But if you could do some videos on that then it'd be awesome!

  5. I subscribed today because your videos are helpful.

  9. Hi,

    I'm 17 years old and my biggest dream is to be a professional footballer. Im training very hard:

    3 times a week I train in the gym for strengt and muscles. (squat, bench press and more…)
    2 times a week I train with my Football team.
    1x a week I play a Football match.

    And I try to touch the ball at least 30min-60min a day. (jugling, passing to wall, shooting).

    See below for more…

  10. My team sucks, most of them are nerds. We lose every game and we dont even play high in the division. Can I still get better? And maybe be one day a professional football player?

    Also I have to say that I mostly dont make the good decision and so I loose the ball. But I dont know how I can train on that with this team?

    Please I need advice…

  11. Can you teach me how to do a rabona because when I try it I can't swing my leg all around my back leg and then I end up kicking the ball with the inside not outside of my foot.

  12. show us how to do a volley when it's crossed please! or when it's coming from behind like someone is giving you a lobbed through ball

  13. I have to practice with a wall. Haha I practiced with my cousin and he hurt his ankle. Not a lot of football fans around here.

  14. Yo 😉 I know of some players that is incredible when it comes to hitting it on the volley 😉 Steven Gerrard is the best example 😀 He has scored many FANTASTICK (Volley) goals!

  16. Guys, improve your soccer skills doesn't need to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I'll give you some advice right now. Search a training program known as Zumlaxoc Training Program (search on google). Seriously, thanks to Zumlaxoc Training Program I've improve my soccer skills. I probably should not even be mentioning it cause I do not want a bunch of other folks out there running the same "game" but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I'll share the wealth haha.

  17.  Hi Matt.I am 15 now and I just had 2 years of high school soccer training.I play soccer a lot but I had not been trained earlier when i was very small. do you think there's still a chance i can be a pro player?I feel that i am better than the players in our team but obviously those who are in clubs are much better than me. pls tell me what i can do

  18. Hello Matt, I just turned 14. I'm shorter than the average size however I am strong and have pace. I play as a winger (I prefer playing on the right flank) and I've had many experiences in football,for example: last season, I've trained and played with an under-16 football team (when I was 13) and I play with the school team. I'm the best player in my year. I have many qualities such as:
    Good attitude, I'm disciplined , dedicated to do as much as I can, learn numerous skills, fast, strong, high CV fitness, a good communication between team mates, and many more. But, the thing that puts me down a lot of times is the fact that scouts or managers judge me by my size because they look for tall players and my chance is more smaller than tall players. Is there any other way I can make scouts or managers choose me instead of the taller player. Thanks for reading, please reply.

  19. I've really learned alot from this video , as a ST(striker) in my team all of my team is putting hope on me to make the win so now i can work and improve my volleys and make the win 

  20. I am going to be trying out for my high school varsity team. I have been player soccer for 8 years and but I had to take 2yrs off because I torn my lcl and broke my patella in half and I'm really not sure what they are going to be looking for if you could give me some heads up of what you think they will do/ask for so I can start improving… Try outs are in December!

  21. As specialist, I do believe Spovelax Training Program can be great way to improve your football skills. Why not give it a shot? perhaps it's going to work for you too. 

  22. I like your videos, they are helpful and even though I know how to pass and shoot and stuff like that your videos help me see better ways to do does things and get better. Are you still making videos because I would really like to learn how to do a full volley because ive messed up alot during game tryin to do one.

  23. can you show me where I must hit the ball, because when I try to make side volley, everytime I kill a bird 🙂

  24. Hey I want to know the do you hit the ball with the side of you like or hit it from the shoe laces? Please help me
