Advice On Goal Kicks in soccer

The majority of Goalkeepers, managers and parents constantly ask me about how to take a goal kick, or that their goalkeeper needs help with their kicking.

My number one thing I would tell parents and managers is to let the goalkeeper take all of the goal kicks. Without practice you will never learn. Try to avoid letting defenders take the goal kicks.

At a younger age I would advise all goalkeepers to work on their technique and accuracy. Don’t worry if you can’t score a goal from a goal kick.

I will be posting a video shortly on how to take a goal kick.
