1 Movement Analysis of Kicking A Soccer Ball Kendra Alberts - Kyleah Bowder - Kelsey Timmerman
2 Introduction Kicking a soccer ball is situational. Depending where you are on the field or what your objective is, the kick may be different.The different kicks might differ in force and distance based upon technique.Examples: cross, shot, and goal kicks compared to a pass in a combination play.
3 Mental PreparationPlayers are constantly thinking “what is next” --- Head is up.Mental preparation leads to ball set up.LacesInside of footBall set up leads to body preparation.
4 Types of KicksLaces Kick- Toe down, power in knee flexion. Used for crosses, corner kicks, goal kicks, and shooting.Inside of Foot-Ankle rotated out, toes pointed up. Used for passing, and finishing (shooting).
5 3. Cocking of Kicking Limb Laces KickSix Stages1. The Approach2. Foot Planting3. Cocking of Kicking Limb4. Swing5. Ball Contact6. Follow Through
6 Stages-Laces Stage 1: The Approach This stage is consecutive to the mental preparation.Set play: Run up at an angleShot: AnticipationCross: Touch to the outside of the foot kicking the ball to create an angle.
7 Stages-Laces Stage Two-Foot Planting Determines the direction of the kickDone in the sagittal planeResult of knee extension in stride and plantar flexion. P. Flexion may proceed into dorsiflexion based upon circumstances or stage of the kick.
8 Stages-Laces Stage Three: Cocking of Kicking Limb -Power producing movement.-Knee Flexion is the main component-Plantar flexion in the kicking foot-Hip extension-Possible hip abduction.This movement stores up force and energy that will transfer over to the swing phase.
9 Stages-Laces Stage Four: The Swing Knee extension Hip flexion Plantar flexionThis is an explosive anaerobic movement.* Torque and moment arm play a major role in this movement. The longer the limb and shorter moment arm, the more speed will be generated. The smaller the limb and bigger the moment arm, the greater the strengthCheck torque and moment arm
10 Stages-Laces Stage Five: Ball Contact Knee Extension still taking placeContinuation of hip flexionPlantar flexionSome dorsiflexion in planted foot
11 Stages-Laces Stage Six: Follow Through Continuation of ball contact Knee ExtensionHip FlexionFoot begins to relax-Then the reverse happens-Hip Extension bringing leg back down-Athlete lands on shooting foot
12 Laces-Upper Body There is minimal movement in the upper body. Most movement done in the frontal plane.Lateral flexion in the torsoArm abductionArm adduction
13 Inside of the footThe stages of using the inside of the foot are very similar.However there is more movement done in the transverse plane.Eversion in the footLateral rotation in the knee
14 Main Muscles Quadriceps Hamstrings Gluteus Max and Min Periformis AbdominalsPsoasCalvesAdductors of the leg
