7 Soccer Shooting Tips


Visitors: 2,673

Have you ever wondered what to do to get a better soccer shoot? Well, if your practice often and regularly you will surely increase the skill of your shoot. However, there are some tips that you should know that will help you increase the skill of your shoot. Let's start to look at these:

  • More leg muscles - By getting more leg muscles you will be able to shoot harder and also prevent serious injuries. Keep in mind that you are not after some bodybuilder leg muscles. Instead, you want your leg muscles to be flexible. It is therefore important to combine your leg muscles training with regular ball training.

  • Kick the ball properly - A good soccer shoot doesn't just mean kicking the ball with power. What is more important is to kick the ball properly.

  • Try different shooting methods - When practicing on your shooting skills, be sure to try out several shooting methods like, volley, instep and full volley. To become a good soccer player you will need to master more than just one shooting method.

  • Analyze -After every soccer game, bring a note block and write down how many shoots you had on the goal, how many goals you scored, how many of these went outside and so on. Analyzing your game will surely help you avoid making same mistakes in your upcoming games.

  • Practice with a goalkeeper - Try to practice on your shooting skills with a goalkeeper. It is much more fun having a goalkeeper standing in the goal (comparing to shooting at an empty goal). By having a goalkeeper standing in the goal you will also be able to increase your shooting skills better.

  • Watch pro matches on TV - A good exercise which will help you reveal your own mistakes. Bring a block and write down what the pro players are doing during the shooting moment.

  • Never feel satisfied - Don't feel satisfied just because you have a good soccer shoot. Always try to improve it no matter how good it is. The biggest mistake you can do is to lie down and skip your practice.
