Now what I want to talk about is passing.
Passing the ball is actually the most important part of soccer. It’s getting the ball to your
other players it’s feeding the whole field. So the best way to pass and short passes is
using the inside of your foot now a lot of people start out and they do it what I call
the hockey foot. The hockey foot is this (showing) that is not how you kick the ball. Because
all of your power comes from the hinge of the knee so when you come up to the ball you
bring it back hinge and your foot is turned. You hit with the inside of your foot right
here right when you come down so it may look like you’re going to hit it straight on but
you’re really going to hit it a little turn. The hockey kick is slower and less effective
and more awkward.
