You Will Need
* A soccer game
* A corner kick opportunity
* A soccer ball
Step 1: Place ball
Place the ball within the corner arc on the side of the field where the ball left the field of play.
Step 2: Have teammates spread out
Have your teammates spread themselves out in the general area where the ball will land—typically in front of the opponent's goal.
*Tip: Have a player position himself closer to you, just outside the penalty box. This gives you a passing option, in case the penalty box is congested or you feel your kick won't reach the goal mouth.
Step 3: Wait for whistle or signal
Wait until the referee blows the whistle or signals that you may proceed with your kick.
Step 4: Kick the ball
Kick the ball, trying to drop it directly in front of the goal, where your teammates have the best chance of putting it in the net.
*Tip: Try to loft the ball to give your players an opportunity to head it past the goalie.
Step 5: Be aware
Be aware of what happens to the ball after your kick—you may not touch the ball again until other players have contacted it.
Step 6: Join your team
Join your team on the field to assist in a goal-scoring opportunity.
David Beckham is known not just for "bending" in free kicks, but for his assists on corner kicks.
