The app guides your through the process of setting up the kick so that the app is capable of accurate detection. You will firstly start by selecting if you are right or left footed and then the app provides a frame overlay that you must position the ball over your resting soccer ball. Once setup its all up to the kicker and the app to track the overall speed, angle and estimated kick distance. It even records your kick and replays it back to you in super slow motion.
The app makes it possible to showcase a variety of Biomechanical concepts and would also work well included in a Football (Soccer) Unit. Your students could work together to see how the speed of their kick alters with various situations such as with their opposite foot. A FREE app well worth checking out.
