Shooting



The leg should be slightly bent, with the toes pointing down and the ankle held firm.

Try to keep your non-kicking foot in contact with the ground as it will keep you steady, and aim to make a solid connection with the ball.

If you try to bring your kicking leg through too quickly, you will find it difficult to control the volley.

Strike the centre or top half of the ball with the instep and keep your head over the ball to keep your volley down.

Follow through in the direction of the target.
