  • Step forward and allow ball to fall from hands note: ball should not be thrown in the air but dropped
  • 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 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 onthe ball
  • Turn ball to hold on one hand
  • Strike the ball on HANDPASS marker 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
