How To Do a Slingshot
The Slingshot is an attacking move great for getting past defenders in soccer.
1 - Push the Ball Back
2 - Pass the Ball Forward
3 - Take a Big Pass Forward
4 - Change Pace
5 - Turn Your Shoulders
Exercise to Practice:
You will need two cones and a ball. First lets start off getting your body use to how the slingshot feels. Set up two cones a small distance apart. From a standstill bring your leading foot up to the top cone, turning your shoulders towards the side and keep your non leading foot at the back cone, then do the slingshot motion and imagine pushing the ball back and passing it forward.
Now try it again. Make sure you turn your shoulders.
Once comfortable set the ball up by the top cone and do the slingshot with the ball, but from a stand still. After you do your move, accelerate forward and start over.
After you’ve done a few do the slingshot from a light dribble. As you feel confident, increase your dribbling speed. Have some fun!
If your pass forward isn’t going forward five to six steps in front of you, you are probably making contact near the base of your toe causing your ankle to be loose when you take your touch. Remember to lock your ankle, point your toe up and make contact with the middle of your foot, not the base of your toe.
Dribbling at a medium ish pace is a good time to try a slingshot. I don’t recommend being in a full sprint and trying this move. It’d probably be called an ACL if you tried it going 100 miles an hour!
