Striking Accuracy – App Lesson

Problem Statement: Is kicking with the inside, outside, or the top of the foot more accurate for hitting a target from 15 yards?

 

Students write a hypothesis.

 

Step 1: Students will get into groups and practice kicking a ball and striking a target on a wall from 20 yards away. The groups will be formed by typing students’ names into the Team Shake app.

Step 2: Students will test their hypothesis and break down recordings of their kicking motions noting which approach was more accurate as a group for hitting the target. Students will reflect on their kicking motion, accuracy, and power using the Coach’s Eye Video Analysis app.
