CONSISTENCY IN KINEMATIC MOVEMENT PATTERNS AND PREDICTION OF BALL VELOCITY IN THE FOOTBALL PLACEKICK
Keywords: throwing, kicking, striking
AbstractFootball games can be won or lost "off the foot" of a kicker. It may be a point after touchdown (worth 1 point) or a field go 1(worth 3 points). The keys to the success of a kick depend on the strength/power of the kicker's leg and the accuracy with which he can kick the ball through the uprights.
