The Science of Kicking "Kicking for Distance and Acuracy in Australian Football".
Written by former international sporting representatives and presently leading forensic movement and sport analysts Geoffrey Hosford and Don Meikle

The Science of Kicking uses applied anatomy and biomechanical theory to explain every technical aspect of the punt kick. Included are the drop punt, the torpedo punt, the checkside punt and the stab punt.
With 120 pages, and more than 100 photographs and diagrams the ‘what, how, and why’ of this critical skill is explained. The book includes detailed coaching practises and exercises.
It is written in an easy-to-read format so that every player and coach at any level can understand the theory and practice of the punt kick.

‘For more than one hundred years there has been an absolute dearth of pure and applied information related to kicking for distance and accuracy in Australian Football. It was with much joy and interest that I read ‘The Science of Kicking’, for it fills beautifully the gaping chasm of validated knowledge available on this critical subject in our great game. For those learning and coaching this difficult, complex skill, this book will provide the best possible resource available’.

David Parkin, academic, ABC commentator, former player and AFL coach
