Shooting



Make your mind up early and keep your eyes focused on the ball as you get into the line of flight.

Use your arms for balance and imagine a strike zone in front of you.

Keep your head still and judge where you think the ball is going to arrive.

Plant your non-kicking foot on the ground. Leading with the knee, bring the kicking leg through.
