Additional Testings for Teams
Reasons why Clubs Evaluate their Athletes
1. Talent Identification and comparative results.
2. Injury reduction and prevention – Maintain mental health and confidence.
3. Grassroots - Biological and chronological development.
4. Highly applicable from 12-19 years of age - To determine the correct training methods for each age group in accordance to exercise physiology and player development.
5. Dealing with growth spurts and adapting to the demands of modern soccer.
6. To monitor improvement and identify issues affecting performance levels.
7. Compulsory for all female athletes as studies show high rates of ACL injuries. (Athlete triad, hormonal variations, bone density etc.)
Performance: Various protocols of power, strength, isometric exercises in all movements including single leg asymmetrical force outputs.
Support: Customized performance training programs.
Biomechanical: Soccer specific protocols on mobility, stability, knee, hip, ankle, injury predictor and components effecting change of direction, dribbling, passing, shooting etc.
Support: Customized Daily Injury prevention programs for each athlete. Growth spurts are a main factor for loss of speed, balance, stability, coordination, strength, and technical ability. (Number 1 reason for players not reaching full capacity)
Fitness Test: A soccer specific test will determine the fitness levels, maximum speed, aerobic capacity etc.
Support: Data will provide us with the correct workloads of training which will include intensity, aerobic, anaerobic, maximum speed, distance, volume, and time.
Speed: Various speed tests specific to soccer.
Support: Data will show us which factors need to be improved to increase speed. (Strength, range of motion, balance, asymmetrical imbalances etc.) Comparative results and accepted norms per age group.
Agility: Change of direction with and without the ball.
Support: Data will show us if decision making and change of direction is influenced and affected by cognitive ability or human performance factors.
Technical Ability: A protocol of skill exercises which are fundamental to on field performance. Skill is influenced by balance, coordination, strength, mobility, technique etc.
Support: Corrective training sessions which include improving driving,dribbling, screening,recieving, 1v1 etc
For All Sports
Step 1: Create a baseline through soccer specific fitness, ergometric, skill, and cognitive testing.
Step 2: Identify areas of improvement using data driven science and Artificial Intelligence.
Step 3: Individual performance & skill programs based on results.
Duration - 40 min Per athlete - 120' min per team (20 athletes)
Where- Portable or on location
Why - Baseline and Talent Identification
Objective data provides us with non-human error when analyzing speed, biomechanics, cognitive, skill ability, and fitness components. The biggest problem that young athletes face when trying to perform at an elite level are the effects growth spurts have on skill, speed, and decision-making abilities.
The main reasons for the regression of performance levels over a period of time are the incorrect training loads and insufficient models of training which effect the whole development process, Growth spurts effect strength, stability, mobility which in turn effects additional performance related aspects if not trained correctly and periodically.
