Could you be a kicker in football if you play soccer?

you could, but the kicking technique of kicking a football on a stand and a soccer ball on the ground is different. in football you need to tilt your foot as far out as you can to get maximum distance, but in soccer if you kicked a hard ball as hard as you could like that you would probably break something. in soccer you need to make you foot curve around the ball for accuracy. you would have the power but not the right kicking technique.

How do you kick a soccer ball high and far?

1) its not really on just kicking the ball and see how far or how high its thrown. I think that its really the practice you have and how good you are at soccer. Because you can spend years of your life practicing soccer but if you just dont like it or not good at it, you can't do anything about it. And if your life its soccer and that is what you only talk about it with your friends, by having little practice you can really become a high soccer star. 2) A ball can go really far but its all in the technique. The most crucial things are when kicking the try to get up under the ball, curve your run like shown. Also, a good angle is abt 45 degrees or somewhere in the middle of 0-90. If your foot hits on top of the ball it will dig into the ground. If you hit it too low it will just go up, but not far.

How do you kick a soccer ball far?

Always try to kick the ball with the side of your foot, this also gives you more control over the ball and where you want it to go. Kicking the ball far into the field is just a technique you have to practice, you won't be able to kick it far the first time, you just have to keep practicing. Or try to kick it with the top of your foot, the laces of your cleats or tennis shoes, whatever your wearing, hope this helps and good luck with soccer.
