MARK WILSON: "Hi! I'm Mark Wilson from United Soccer Academy. We are here today with Expert Village and we are taking a look at shooting techniques, and we are going to have a look at the advance technique of taking the ball on the volley. This is where we take the ball first time out of the air. It may be from across or it may be a loose ball that is dropping out of the air in front of the goal; and we want to try and strike the first time to score with. We are going to show a technique very simply here using our demonstrator. As you can see he covers his shoulders over the top of the ball. He has a pointed toe to strike the ball with the laces, his kicking foot is parallel to the ground and the power extension is going to come from the knee. We will just show you that one more time. Okay let's take a look at that live at full speed now, with our demonstrators serving the ball to themselves. One more time. So just a recap, we looked at volleying the soccer ball on a shoot. To do that we must cover our shoulders over the top of the ball to keep the ball down, we have to have our striking foot parallel with the ground, our power extends from the knee, our toe is pointed and we strike the ball cleanly with the laces."
