Soccer (Kicking) Cues

PE Central

Trapping a Soccer Ball

Suggested Grade Level: 4-6

Move your feet quickly so you get your body in front of the ball

Relax the body part you are going to trap the ball with (i.e., inside of foot, thigh, etc.)

Give with the body part you are trapping with

Pretend the body part is a pillow or something soft. You don't want the ball to go very far from you after it contacts your body
