Hi. I’m Chris Murray, and I’m going to show
you how to head a soccer ball. In soccer, a lot of the times, you’re required to use
your head in order to pass or even try to score a goal. When you use your head, you’re
supposed to use the front part of your head, your forehead- right here. And one major tip
that I learned when I was a kid was always keep my eyes open and my mouth closed. Keep
my eyes open just so I could see where the ball was going. And my mouth closed just in
case I don’t swallow any bugs. When you’re defending, you want to head the ball up and
away, as high up in the air and as far as you can. So if the ball is coming towards
you, you’d get underneath it and head it out. If you’re trying to score a goal, you want
to try to head the ball down and into a corner, so that it would make it harder for the goalkeeper
to react. When you head the ball, you want your arms up for balance and to protect yourself
as you jump in the air. With your arms up like this, you want to try to pull yourself
forward to create power on the header, to act as if you were pulling yourself through
a window or something like that. And those are just some tips on how to head a soccer
ball.
