Penalty Kick

Penalty Kick

5) Penalty Kick-
Key Points: The kicker places the ball high on the grass. Do not let the ref place the ball in a divot in the ground. PK’s are live balls. Shoot outs are not live balls. We move on PK’s to fight for position. If we are on defense we box out the opponents to keep them from getting a rebound. The kicker does not kill the ball, but hits it firmly and follows through towards the goal. Our Right and Left forwards move with the kicker to get into the right and left zones to center any rebounds. Midfielders help free the forwards. The kicker follows through and covers the zona rosa.
