Overhead kick
Around the Academy:

Overhead kick
Step One

Get into line with the flight of the ball and keep your eyes on it throughout.

This skill is all about timing.

Most of the time you will be attempting this trick, the ball will be coming at you fast from a tricky angle so a good connection is vital.

Don't try and kick it hard, just kick it clean - the movement of your body will generate the power.
