Dear Coach,

Welcome to our bi-weekly Success in Soccer eNewsletter which includes
coaching and training tips to assist you with your coaching. Enjoy!


Shooting/Finishing

 


The excitement of shooting/finishing
Everybody that has played the game of soccer knows what kind of great
feeling it is to put the ball in the back of the NET. Scoring a goal is
probably the biggest reward when playing the game and the payoff for all the
hard work. 
Although the sequence of movements of shooting with the instep foot is quite
straightforward, but because of its importance and the small contact surface
on the foot it must be practiced often during training to become a precise
shooter.

Teaching finishing techniques
The ideal method of teaching finishing techniques can be broken down into
two main parts: explanation and demonstration, which we'll describe in this
newsletter, followed by observation and correction.

Technique: 

*	Plant leg: cushioning bend at knee and ankle 
*	Kicking leg: swinging from hip and knee straight whip-like from back
to front 
*	Plant foot: place next to ball (hip width apart and toe lined up
with front of ball) 
*	Kicking foot: flex ankle, follow through and keep foot flexed after
contact 
*	Kicking surface: shoe laces, little bone on top of foot 
*	Upper body: lean over ball, lift opposite arm for balance, keep head
down

Explanation and demonstration
Once all players are assembled and focused on the coach, the coach can begin
with explanations and demonstrations.
The coach's explanation must be clear and easy to understand. Long
monologues are to be avoided at all costs! Children learn best by watching,
so it's good to move quickly from verbal explanations to a visual
demonstration. A clear and technically correct demonstration is
indispensable! The coach should also make sure that all players have a clear
view of the demonstration. For example, when demonstrating the instep kick,
the standing leg should not block the view of the kicking foot.
