PENALTY KICKS - Winning Soccer Skills for Ages 10-13. USA National Team Coach Kristy Hartofilis demonstrates how soccer players can master the penalty kick. By placing a cone on each side of the goal inwards of the post, a target area is created. Players should aim for a low and hard shot between the cone and post on either side. Practicing penalty kicks is a great way for players to ...improve their shooting and finishing, and gives them the confidence necessary to capitalize on a penalty opportunity in game. Even though shooting is a skill practiced in many different ways, it's important that players rehearse the penalty kick scenario as the dynamics and pressure of the situation are very unique, and having a team well prepared for penalty kicks can be the difference between a win and a loss.
