Hi guys, I need some tips for place kicking! Our season starts soon and Iâ€™ve been practising during summer. Iâ€™ve never kicked before, but am keen to start. Iâ€™ve got a lot of tips off the net, but am still struggling, mainly with power. When I strike the ball, it gets plenty of height and spin and is fairly accurate but doesnâ€™t go very far. Iâ€™m not 100% sure if Iâ€™m hitting the ball in the right area i.e where the sweet spot is (where is it!?). What is it about the kick that gives you the power? Basically the distance I am getting from where the ball is kicked to where it first bounces is 35m, which isnâ€™t really enough. Basically giving me a goal scoring kicking distance of just over 30m.. any tips would be appreciated. Also what kind of distance should I be aiming for to be an OK kicker for a club side.
