Soccer is one of the most played and most loved sport on the planet. But soccer requires practice. Practice in defending goal posts, receiving short passes, receiving long shots, getting ball throws for header practice and so on. One coach needs to train 11 players and each player needs ball practice. So here we design a machine that can shoot soccer balls with high speed and very high accuracy for efficient soccer practice.

Our machine makes use of 2 x high torque motors with attached pulley wheels for throwing balls. Both motors are rotated in opposite directions so as to drive the ball in same direction with dual speed. These motors are powered by a battery to deliver high power output. This setup of rotating motors is mounted on a trolley with a stepper based arrangement. This arrangement allows user to dynamically adjust vertical angle of the ball shooter.

The system mounted on a trolley with castor wheels allows for easy movement of the system over the ground. Also the castor wheel based trolley allows for easy 360 degree movement for changing shooting direction at any instant. The soccer ball holder allows to hold 2 balls in queue at a time. A trigger is that controls a servo based arrangement is used to trigger the ball to be shot.

Thus the soccer ball shooter uses mechanical system to shoot soccer balls with variable settings on the soccer field.
