Hi, my name is Guillermo Gomez, I coach soccer.
Today, I’ll be talking to you about how to shoot a soccer ball. So, first of all you
want to concentrate on your body mechanics that is very important. You want to point
your toes down and lock your ankle, that’s very important. Then you have your supporting
leg which comes right next to the ball. As you approach the ball you want to actually
fix your eye on the spot, normally on a spot, on the ball. Normally that’s through the middle
of the ball, so it would be the the equator line. OK, and then as you come forward your
kicking leg, your knee comes over the ball that will give it some power, and you move
your upper body forward. OK, finally, OK, so you have your supporting foot, you’re looking
at the ball when you’re kicking it, knee over the ball, kick the ball on with this motion.
And that’s how you kick a soccer ball.
