Hi! I’m Mark Wilson from United Soccer Academy.
We are here today with Expert Village and we are talking about shooting. The more specific
way we are now going to take a look on how we shoot using our head. So we are actually
heading our ball to try to create a scoring opportunity. It’s important that we get power
when we head the ball. Otherwise is going to be a easy ball for the goal keeper to collect.
To get power, when we head the ball, we have to use the right part of the head to strike
the ball. We want the ball to go down, we do not want the ball to go up. So if we look
at the ball here, as I head that ball, I want to use my forehead right around where my hairline
is. That is the hardest part of my head. I want to try to tuck my chin in and use my
shoulders or my neck muscles to strike the ball down towards the goal. Let’s show it
with our demonstrators and see if we can score some goals. And I showed my demonstrators, we can score
with not just with our feet we can also score with our head, using the power of our forehead,
neck muscles to strike through the ball.
