Shooting



When the ball is in ideal range, whip your kicking leg off the deck into the back of the ball, bringing your other leg back down quickly.

At this point, your upper body should be almost horizontal to the ground.

If the ball is flying too high, your body is probably too upright. It is the scissor movement of your legs that creates the power.
