Hi I’m Vasili Uspensky, former VCU goalkeeper
and CoachUp Coach. And this is the punt. This is Patrick. Patrick is fighting for a
spot on his varsity squad. And today, we’re gonna work on the punt. The punt is a kick
used by keepers primarily on counter-attack. It’s not the most accurate, but it’s gonna
give your forwards an opportunity to strike while the opposing team is nearby. You wanna hold the ball in the opposite hand
of your kicking foot. You wanna hold it out in front of you, give it a light toss, and
then kick through it. Make contact with your laces, slightly below the ball. Drive through
the ball with your foot and go nice and long. You can hear that. Sounds good. It actually
was good.
