Eight football players in the school team were asked to perform side volley shot at three different kick elevations (on the floor, at 1/2 of the knee and at knee).Two high-speed cameras were used simultaneously to shoot the lower limbs of the players when they performing the foot volley with two different sizes of footballs, and then analyzed relevant kinematics parameter, using the motion images. The study suggests that the footballs used in futsal and eleven-a-side football show no
