Shooting Mechanics specializes in shooting anatomy. We’ll deconstruct and review every aspect of shooting in detail: visualization, approach, plant foot positioning, setting the frame, angle of release, turning radius, rotary momentum, follow-through, and critical velocity.
Next, think mechanics, mechanics, mechanics–the same mechanical principles that govern the movements of all athletes. The same mechanics that NASA used to land a spacecraft on the moon timed to within a fraction of second!

Shooting on the run
Scoring goals is not just a matter of Ready, Set, Go. You have to practice all three things together on the run if you are serious about putting the ball in the net!
Finally a “finish” players enjoy
A fun and inspirational class using a state of the art 12’’ thick dive mat, teaches secrets of specialty finishing including: bicycle (overhead) kicks, scissor kicks, banana kicks, in-swingers, corner kicks, and set pieces from outside the box!
Perfect Penalty Kicks
A class designed to guide players through the process and pressure associated with penalty kick taking. Everything from stepping up to volunteer for this high stakes moment to choosing the correct corner and technique and cadence is reviewed.
Free Kick Curving
Swerve it. Curve it. Spin it. Dip it. Players will learn the centrifugal force, the critical velocity, torque, and correct point of contact
It’s not quite a shot, and it’s not quite a pass, yet you’re far in the corner on small patch of grass! This class details
Volley & Half Volleys
Sometimes you have to reach out for the ball bravely with a spirit of abandon, but there is a sure-fire technique for the brave who understand that connecting with the ball out of the air, before it lands, or at that awkward moment when it’s on its way up, is the only way to score. Volleys–the V stands for Victory!
