Hey, I’m Chris Murray, and I’m going to demonstrate
to you on how to chip a soccer ball. The trick with chipping a soccer ball, is that your
foot needs to get completely underneath the ball. In order for that to happen, you need
to aim for the bottom part of the ball, letting your foot get completely underneath it, so
that it will come up in the air. The difference between chipping your soccer ball, and striking
the ball for power, is that when you strike the ball for power, you usually aim more towards
the center of the ball, letting it stay lower to the ground, and having more power on it.
When using the chip in soccer, usually you use it when there’s a player in front of you,
and you need to pass the ball to your teammate, that’s on the other side of him, or if the
goalie is off of his line, you could chip him from wherever you are on the field, in
order to score. Chipping the ball is not a very hard skill to learn. It just takes practice.
When practicing, just remember to aim for the bottom part of the ball, letting your
foot get completely underneath it, so that the ball can come up in the air, and that’s
how you chip a soccer ball.
