Side Scissor Kick

The side scissor kick is a great finishing move in the air for advanced players who are willing to commit. It’s useful when there isn’t time or the right angle to get your head on the ball, but want to try to score. First you need to start the wind up early and swing your non-kicking leg towards the ball. Then kick with a smooth stroke and let the momentum come from having a firm foot. If you have the courage to get some air, and you can put the timing and technique together, this can be an impressive weapon in your arsenal during set pieces and other penalty area opportunities.
