The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between pelvis and kick leg rotation strategies during soccer instep kicking. Twenty semi-professional players performed kicks for maximal speed and accuracy. A strong relationship was shown between pelvis transverse rotation (i.e. speed of rotation of kick side hip towards the ball upon impact) and kick leg (i.e. thigh-knee angular velocity ratio upon impact) strategies (r = 0.760, p
