How to coach an overhead kick

The skill to the overhead kick is all about balance and technique.

Get those right and you may have a chance of kicking the ball cleanly. It’s not an easy skill to perfect but your players will have a great deal of fun trying to do it.

Practise it on soft ground to prevent your players injuring their backs, but don’t let them overdo it.


How to practise it

  • Players throw a ball in the air.
  • Jump up using the kicking foot as a spring.
  • Then bring the kicking foot up and hands down to break fall.
  • They need to twist their bodies so they don’t land on their backs.
