    I think my kicking style is quite effective and accurate. For some reason, I cannot kick more than 30m. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips on how to kick further? Thanks in advance

    Stretch hamstrings and increase thigh/hip strength.

    L Jetta and Hartung can both kick upwards of 60m.

    Technique is as important as strength.

    Lower ball drop so you'll get a better chance of really connecting with the pill.

    Yep. I don't even bother at training anymore, I just kick back the balls from the square.

    I know the feeling, 10 years as a full back. Never kicked a goal in my playing days. Goal kicking is over-rated anyway

    I've recently gotten back into training to play seniors next year. Haven't played footy since I was 15 and I'm 24 now. Next too no physical activity for the last 10 years outside of 1 season of cricket and basketball which were both 4 years+ ago. Been about a month and a 1/2 now and when I came back I could only kick 25m. Just from kicking it every second day or so got it back up to 30. I'm right on the cusp of 35m now and started weight training yesterday (**** I'm sore) so hopefully it will continue to improve. Only thing I can think of that might help if you wanted to try it assuming you dont do it is kicking the ball with your navicular bone. It almost feels like your kicking it on the inside of your foot or your ankle but from what I've seen it's a very good place to kick the ball from. Good luck friend.

    Car accident ended my season last year, hit in the right knee and I still can't run 3 months later, looking at another two months of nothing strenuous on my knee. Quite worried about how my kicking will be next year.
