    Usage of 'kick'

    He put his foot gently on the stick, rolled it onto his foot, kicked it up and caught it very deftly.

    Can someone please tell me if the above sentence is correct and well-formed? I am not sure about the use of kick here.

    I hope you can picture what I am trying to say here.
