Hi! I’m Mark Wilson from United Soccer Academy.
We are here today with Expert Village and we are taking a look at some shooting techniques,
and we are going to look how we take a chip shot. In order to take a chip shot, you want
to try and kick the ball over the top of the goal keeper to dip into the goal, so we have
to be aware of the goalkeeper’s positioning. When the goalkeeper is not in the goal on
his or her goal line, that is a opportunity for use to take a chip shot. The technique
behind taking a chip shot, it involves getting underneath the ball to create loft so that
the ball will then come back down and into the back of the net. Let’s show that with
Our non kicking foot is placed beside the ball, our kicking foot, with the toe down,
gets underneath the ball to create the chip that we require, over the goalkeeper and into
the goal. That is how we take a chip shot.
