Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world and it is still growing tremendously across people of all ages today. The goal of this research was to look at the history and manufacturing of the soccer ball since the beginning of its time in the early 1800s and the trajectory of a floater kick. A floater kick is when there is no spin on the ball. This is a difficult kick to attain due to aerodynamic drag and the magnus effect of a moving object. Another concept examined is the speed the ball travels at with no spin across a certain distance for a single participant. Additional concepts assessed in this study were the average velocity for one kicker across three segments and to see if a critical Reynolds number was reached in a floater kick.
