The Punt is used to either kick for touch or to shift the focus of the game to another part of the field normally deep into the opposition territory.

· Take the ball in front of you and turn it 45 degrees while dropping the front part of the ball 45 degrees
· Place your kicking foot hand underneath the ball with the other hand supporting the ball
· Non kicking foot points towards the point that you want to kick the ball towards
· Ball falls from your hands in line with the kicking foot
· Toes are pointed with foot hard
· Feet, hips and shoulders are in a straight line

Kicking leg must follow though. Aim for a target beyond where you want to kick the ball
