Soccer Volley


To kick the soccer ball while it is still in the air. If kicked in front with the “laces”, it is called a “volley” or “instep volley“; if the soccer ball is to one side it is called a “side volley”; if the inside of the foot is used it is an “inside-of-foot volley” (this might be used close to soccer goal or for a short pass). A player should lock his ankle when soccer volleying so the foot is firm. On a front volley, proper soccer technique is to bring the foot to the height of the ball by raising the knee (so the portion of the leg between the knee & the ankle is vertical); the technique is different from a regular soccer kick. (See “Soccer Half-Volley“).
