How To: Strike A Soccer Ball

At StriveFar our goal is to inform, enlighten, and to educate.  If we can add a bit of humor and levity, BONUS!

Here is Coach Nick “Macca” demonstrating the proper way to strike a soccer ball. In these photos Nick is clearly wearing Nike soccer boots but this not a StriveFar endorsement.

Step 1: Sideways run-up


Step 2: Arms start to engage on run-up


Step 3: Aggressive & big step next to the ball


Step 4: Correct arm and foot placement before contact


Step 5: Connect with toe knuckle


Step 6: Follow-through with ankle locked and toes pointed down


Step 7: Kicking foot swings through instead of going to ground for extra power


Step 8: Land on kicking foot

  1. Nice work Macca, and remember to keep your head down over the ball whilst you strike it and then, like you say, make sure you have a great follow through and you’ll be bursting nets all over the place!!!
