Kick Wall

A kick wall is a must for any soccer player. Technique is so important. Key components of technique include being able to properly pass a soccer ball with the right amount of weight and receive a ball with the correct touch – a wall provides a great tool to work on perfecting these elements of the beautiful game.

When practicing alone, using a wall can be a game changer for players who want to own their development. Learn more and make your own kick wall.

Every young soccer player should have a rebounder, back stop or wall of some sort to knock the ball against. Growing up, I remember going down to the school and smashing the ball against a brick wall on the playground area. Really, soccer fields showed build in walls near the field or park for kids to pass and shoot against.

“I’d use that wall – hitting the ball with both feet, seeing how long I could return the wall’s passes without losing control.”

“Most of the time I was by myself, just kicking the ball against the wall, seeing how it bounces, how it comes back, just controlling it. I found that so interesting!”

Dennis Bergkamp – Dutch National Team, Ajax, Inter Milan, Arsenal
