The art of goalkicking

Wheadon, David2022
The Art of Goalkicking is the must-have AFL player's guide to goalkicking technique and skill. One area of Australian football play that seems to fail consistently is the art of goalkicking. No matter how many shots at goal a team may have, you can be sure that one question will be constantly asked, at any game, at any ground: How is it that professional, highly skilled AFL players keep missing simple shots at goal? The truth is that goalkicking accuracy at the highest professional level has not improved for most of the last decade. In this guide, David Wheadon, one of Australian football's most respected skills coaches and analysts, covers all aspects of the art of goalkicking and draws on comprehensive statistics compiled through several seasons to explain how and why goalkicking accuracy can be improved. Detailed chapters range from game plans for greater goalkicking success to ways to teach players to improve in all methods of goal shooting. Wheadon even examines the remarkable success of the set-shot snap, the kick around the body made famous by Geelong star Steve Johnson. The Art of Goalkicking is the bible for coaches and players, as they strive to conquer this oft-ignored skill.
