Introduction

Name: Paul Collins Candidate Number: 7000 Sport: Football Analysis Of Skill Proficiency In Football Skill: Shooting Preparation: My standing foot is correctly positioned by the ball. All my weight is on my standing foot, leaving my striking foot to swing freely Execution: I strike the middle of the ball with the instep of my foot, however I don't strike the middle of the ball, I tend to hit the bottom of the ball. This causes the ball to lift. Recovery: I follow through with my striking foot toward the target and transfer my weight through rotation giving me greater power. Result: Generally I strike the ball with good power and line, however the height tends to not be very good, because I hit the bottom of the ball causing me o sky a lot of my chances. ...read more.

Middle

When passing I should again position my standing foot by the side of the ball, however the type of pass I need to use determines which part of the foot or ball I use/hit. Execution: I strike the ball cleanly and use the correct part of my foot to produce the particular pass intended. For instance I use the side foot for shorter passes and the instep for longer driven passes. Recovery: I transfer my weight through to generate the power and my foot follows through onto the target to produce accuracy. After passing the ball I support it well and continue my involvement in the move towards goal. Result: My passes generally have enough power to reach the intended target, so they are not usually intercepted and are accurate. ...read more.

Conclusion

Recovery: I generally manage to maintain balance and also follow up rebounds that may come out of my header. Result: I often miss the target because I connect with the wrong part of the ball. In practise only 40% of my headers were on target. Skill: Dribbling Preparation: I tend to dribble in the correct parts of the pitch and at the correct times. I am balanced and my weight is over the ball. Execution: I keep the ball close to my feet and use both the in side and out side of my foot to keep control of the ball. I have a wide range of skills to beat the opponent for all types of situations. Recovery: I maintain balance well and know when to release the ball after the dribble Result: I often manage to beat the player and produce a good ball at the end of it. ...read more.
