Hi. I’m Jyler Noviello, and I’m going to teach
you how to do a half volley in soccer. A half volley in soccer would occur when you’re trying
to score a goal. The ball could get crossed into you, and it actually bounces before it
gets to you, and you want to hit the ball as it’s about to land on the ground after
a bounce. When doing a half volley, it’s very important to strike the center of the ball.
If you don’t hit the center of the ball, the ball could go anywhere. So if you hit the
ball on the top, the ball would go down. If you hit the ball too low, the ball would go
too high. You have to strike the center of the ball as it’s about to hit the ground in
order to do a good half volley. So now I’ll actually demonstrate, in slow motion, how
you would do a half volley. The ball would actually hit the ground first. And then as
it rises up, you want to hit it before it hits the ground the second time. So as the
ball hits the ground, you want to come hit it in the center before it actually hits the
ground. So now I’ll show you.
And that is how to do a half volley in soccer.
