Kicking/Passing – 5 | Youth Soccer Drills & Skills



1v1 Soccer videos are not designed to teach proper technique.

Instead, take advantage of the resources linked at the end of this post.  These resources are the best of what is out there.  These resources contain professional trainers and skilled players correctly demonstrating (often in slow-motion) the techniques you want to learn.

The purpose of 1v1 Soccer is to show parents how to modify effective soccer instructional resources for home use.  By applying these resources in the myriad of different ways demonstrated on this site, you can help your child win the 1v1 soccer battle.

There are many components to a properly kicking a soccer ball.  If any of these components are executed incorrectly the entire kick breaks down.  Some of these components include:

Soccer Hop
Down Swing
Placement Of Plant Foot
Shape Of Kicking Leg – V Shape
Shape Of Striking Foot
Ball Contacting Point
Eyes On Ball
Body Positioning
Shoulder Positioning
Impact Point
Follow Through
There is a soccer training DVD called Blast The Ball which is included with the Soccer University DVD training series.  Blast The Ball covers nearly every element of a correct soccer kick.  I strongly recommend this purchasing and reviewing this DVD to develop and master the various components of properly kicking a soccer ball. 

An Outside Foot Kick/Pass involves kicking the ball with the outside of your foot. 

The Outside Foot Ground Kick/Pass involves using the outside foot to kick the ball along the ground in a specific direction.  When passing to a teammate, this kick offers less control than using the inside foot, but can be completed more quickly and efficiently.  It also puts you in a better position to move around a defender after you complete the pass.  This kick demands striking through the center/top of the ball, keeping your shoulders over the ball, and a follow through that stays parallel with the ground.     

The Outside Foot Ground Kick/Pass – Stationary Ball involves learning how to properly kick a ball that is not moving along the ground using the outside foot.  A stationary ball allows you to focus exclusively on learning proper technique rather than worry about additional elements connected to a moving ball. 

The Outside Foot Ground Kick/Pass – Forward Approaching Ball technique involves learning how to use the Outside Foot to properly kick a ball that is moving towards you and keep it on the ground.
