Technique


Contact is critical to a successful punt. If your drop is good and your fundamentals are solid, you'll be in position to make great contact. Aim the the top of your foot to hit the "belly" of the football, directly opposite the laces. Don't stop driving your leg when your foot contacts the ball.

Steps


1. Grip the ball with your dominant hand as if you were giving a handshake, nestling it between your thumb and fingers.

2. Extend your arm forward as far as you can. Hold the ball horizontally, laces up.

3. Starting with your kicking foot, take two steps forward to build momentum, and then swing your foot out to meet your hand.
