How To Bend a Soccer Ball

Learn how to bend a ball with these key points plus slo motion tips!


Key Points:

1 - Stand at a 45 degree angle.

2 - Take a mental photo of your target.

3 - Place your plant foot slightly behind the ball.

4 - Make contact with the base of your big toe.

5 - Have a low back swing and follow through high.

6 - Rotate your body to your target and lean back.

7 - Think technique not power.


Exercise to Practice:

An exercise to practice is a statUP test called the Becks. Download the statUP test on iOS or Android or sign up at statUP and search for their test called the Becks.

Here is how it works. Set up a cone 25 yards on the end line from the middle of the goal. If you are younger player have the distance be 15 yards and do the Becks Jr test on statUP instead of the Becks. Then take 3 strikes trying to bend the ball in the goal. If it goes in, it’s a hit. If you miss, it’s a miss.

Keep taking the Becks statUP test over and over again so you can track your improvement over time. Remember small improvements daily equal big improvements over time. statUP helps you see those small improvements daily.



What’s Wrong:

If your ball isn’t curving much you are probably not wrapping your foot or you are not rotating your body. If your foot makes contact with the ball, but you don’t wrap your foot until after the ball has left your foot then it’s too late. It’s too late! Wrap your foot as you are making contact with the ball.


Bonus Tip:

Film yourself in slo motion. Set up a camera to film your swing and then critique yourself.
