Soccer Study Guide
Soccer History Soccer is the oldest team sport in written history. Greeks played a soccer game called Harpaston. The Romans adopted it and introduced it into England. The English game is considered to be the soccer game we know today.
The Game Soccer is a game played by two teams. Each team has 11 players. The object of the game is to score goals. This is done by moving the ball through the goal with any part of the body except the arms, hands, or shoulders. The ball is moved about mainly through kicking or passing from person to person.
Dribbling- moving the ball down the field using the inside or outside of the foot. The ball stays with in one to three feet of the player.
Instep Kick- The most powerful kick. Good for kicking a long way.
Inside of the foot kick-Good for kicking accuracy and short passes.
High Kick- Contact the ball low, lean back, follow through high.
Low Kick- Contact the ball high, lean forward, follow through low.
Trap- Stop the ball and get control using the feet, legs, or chest. In all these cases meet the ball and pull back to stop the ball.
Heading - Keep the eyes open and on the ball. Keep the mouth closed. Make contact with the forehead, near the hairline. Nod the head in the direction that the ball is to go.
Throw in- Two hand throw, straight over the head, both feet on the ground.
Goal Kick- sometimes called a fullback kick. If the ball goes out over the end line off of the offense, the ball is put back in play by the defense at the goal box. No one except the goalie and the defense are allowed in the penalty area until the ball clears the penalty box.
