Trick Shot Series :: Top 3 Sports Tricks

Jun 07, 2013

Kidzworld is making a brand new series of sports stories about how to do your favorite trick shots. Sometimes learning how to do sports' skills is boring, so it's important to lighten things up and practice some trick shots every now and then. First, let's take a look at the top 3 tricks and how to do them:

No.1 - How to spin a basketball on your finger

Spinning a basketball on your finger is probably one of the coolest tricks of all-time. It is mesmerizing and if you learn how to do it, you will take your popularity level up a notch. The hardest part about getting this trick is figuring out how to spin the ball completely sideways. A lot of people never learn how to do this trick right because when they spin the ball, it spins diagonally and when the ball touches the finger, it just rolls diagonally down and falls off. So practice spinning the ball first... then try to put your finger under it when you see the ball is spinning completely sideways.

No. 2 - How to do the Michigan (Hockey)

The Michigan was named after a college player who picked up the hockey puck with his stick and shovelled it into the top-corner to score a huge overtime goal in a championship final. The trick has become popular and now everyone is learning how to do the Michigan, including Sidney Crosby who invented his own version. Here's how you do it...

  1. Bend over so your hockey stick is low to the ground (the lower you get the easier this trick will be)
  2. Put your hockey stick on top of the puck so the blade is completely covering the top of the puck
  3. Apply pressure downwards so the puck doesn't squirt loose
  4. Slightly tilt your stick so the puck tilts up onto it's edge
  5. Now drag your stick backwards with the puck remaining on it's edge
  6. Now turn your stick over and the puck should stick to the blade without falling off
  7. Now slow down the stick and the puck should be resting on top of the blade

No.3 - How to do the Rainbow Flick (Soccer)

There are so many trick to do with a soccer ball, but the rainbow flick is the all-time classic. This trick was invented to flip the ball over a defender, but it's also very cool just to pick the ball off the ground and give it to the coach or the referee when you want to show off to the cute fans in the stands. All you do is squeeze the ball between the side of one foot and the heel of the other and then you flip your heel bringing the ball up your other foot and then flick the ball right up.

Guys should be able to do cheer without being bullied. Some of my best guy friends cheer with me and it just makes the whole experience that much better. Other guys should be jealous because they don't get to help girls stretch or lift them up 20 ft into the air hahaha
