Jonathan Bornstein: Clearing With the Head
This is an important defensive soccer skill to master. Some important points to remember when heading are to use your forehead and not the top of the head and to keep your stomach tight to get power behind the clear. Stay low and get under the ball before exploding toward it with the center of your forehead to clear it away from the front of net with power. You can practice this skill repeatedly by having a partner or soccer teammate toss the ball high in the air in front of you for you to go attack it with your head.
