Transcript: 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 some shooting techniques, and we are going to look how we take a chip shot. In order to take a chip shot, you want to try and kick the ball over the top of the goal keeper to dip into the goal, so we have to be aware of the goalkeeper's positioning. When the goalkeeper is not in the goal on his or her goal line, that is a opportunity for use to take a chip shot. The technique behind taking a chip shot, it involves getting underneath the ball to create loft so that the ball will then come back down and into the back of the net. Let's show that with the demonstrators. Our non kicking foot is placed beside the ball, our kicking foot, with the toe down, gets underneath the ball to create the chip that we require, over the goalkeeper and into the goal. That is how we take a chip shot."
