Scientific Validation Programme in Partnership with

Training Regime One - Close Control

Validated to improve close control by up to 73%

Continually pass the ball against the Angled Rebounder for 30 seconds or until either a misplaced attempt or mis-control. May be half volley or full volley from 1.5 metres

The test measures how long the player can continuously volley or half volley the ball against the surface and how many successful attempts are made.

Continued application of this test measures and improves close control, reaction and repetitive muscle memory. Difficulty can be increased by:

Using weaker foot
Alternating between feet
Increase the distance to the rebounder
Increasing the tempo and strength of the attempts

The following Key skills were assessed: Results - % Increases from Each Group Monitored over the 9 Week Period:

Training Regime Two - Passing Accuracy

Validated to improve Passing Accuracy by up to 29% average

Pass the ball 10 times using either foot from a 3 metre distance. Repeat for both the Curved Ramp and the Angled Rebounder, ensuring the ball is returned successfully to the player after each attempt.

The Accuracy is measured by the % of passes successfully returned and brought under control for both exercises.

Continued application of this test will improve the basic technique of performing a ground pass and lofted pass which is a basic skill in the game, both feet can be measured under separate tests and the dif culty can be increased by implementing the following adaptations:

Use just the strongest foot
Use just the weakest foot
Alternate between both feet
Use the outside of each foot as above
Move further away from the unit
Variation on any of the above and change tempo

The following Key skills were assessed: Results - % Increases from Each Group Monitored over the 9 Week Period:

Training Regime Three - Speed of Touch

Validated to improve close control by up to 73%

Pass the ball from 2 metres away into the Curved Ramp using either foot and then control the return using either foot, chest or thigh. Complete 10 attempts and control the ball to the stationary position within a circular area of 2.5 metres in diameter of standing position

Time the speed of ball control to rest and how many controls remain in the target circle. Aim to improve both speed and percentage of accurate controls.

Continued application of this test measures and improves ability and speed of control when making and receiving a controlled pass in a de ned area. Difficulty can be increased by:

Using weaker foot
Alternating between feet
Increase the distance to the rebounder
Reduce the diameter of the target circle
WConcentrate on weakest method of control
Variation on any of the above and change tempo

The following Key skills were assessed: Results - % Increases from Each Group Monitored over the 9 Week Period:
