Learning how to kick a soccer ball correctly takes determination, persistence and practice! The only things you’ll really need to get started are a soccer ball, cleats (if possible to help avoid slipping on the dirt or grass), a large clear area to practice and, of course, strong legs.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
·Never kick with your toe – you will lose control of the ball and you might seriously hurt yourself.
·Wear soccer cleats if possible for the best ground traction.
·Do not over-pump the ball – it makes it more difficult to kick.
·Give the ball more lift by making sure that the ball is under your foot and you are leaning over it when you kick.
·For the best distance and height on the ball, don’t stand directly over it when kicking it, although you do need to kick the ball straight on and stand as straight as possible, while lifting your foot slightly. Make it go higher by leaning back just a bit.
