Teaching kicking from the hands

 

  • Place hands on hands on the ball
  • Step forward and allow ball to fall from hands note: ball should not be thrown in air
  • With toes pointed at the ground  strike the ball with laces along the kick line
  •  Keeping your head down follow through with your Kicking leg in the direction of the target

PROGRESSION: once a child is comfortable with this technique there is a natural Progression to the punt kick

For this the child should release the ball with one hand while holding out the other arm for balance

 

Teaching Handpass Technique 

  •  Place hands on hands on the ball
  •  Turn ball to hold on one hand 
  •  Strike the HANDPASS with a closed hand making contact with the ball with the base of the thumb
  •  allow your hand to follow through in the direction of the pass

 

NOTE: It is important that the hand holding the ball does not move as this leads to inaccuracies and the development of a poor technique
