Kicking fun for beginners - Perfecting the Kick
Rating: 4
from 7 members ratings

A solid kicking game should be part of every team's attacking strategy. That's why this U10-U14s plan aims to improve your players' ability to kick from the hand using the 4 key kicking principles below - to increase both their confidence and skill levels so they're prepared to kick in a game.

The 4 kicking from hand principles:

  1. Keep your eyes on the ball
  2. Point non-kicking foot in the direction of the kick
  3. Point the ball in the direction of your kick
  4. Stand strong on your non-kicking leg and follow through

What's in the Session?

This plan works on grubbers, punts and box kicks in a series of conditioned games. To do this we start with a simple kicking warm-up which will allow you to coach the key points of kicking.

Once players have perfected the basics we then move onto mini-games which will help your players to learn when to employ the kick and to see how accurate kicking can help your side in the right sort of situation.
