Intelligent Soccer Training is designed as a follow-up to The Soccer Games and Drills Compendium: 350 Smart and Practical Games to Form Intelligent Players.
The 150 training exercises presented in this book are based on the basic requirements of modern soccer and deal with running (running, hunting, and catching), techniques (ball control, dribbling, ball processing, ball transfer, passing, and goal shot), group tactical behavior, varying game entry, and improving action speed and game intelligence.
The range of content presented here is geared to a wide variety of age and performance levels. Intelligent Soccer Training differentiates known training contents to present innovative and modern training forms in basic training, to develop new forms, and to deepen the pool of exercise and playing forms for the interested coach. With this book, the trainer will learn new exercises, modern forms of play, and additional variations to expand his repertoire to offer varied and motivating training.
The practice-oriented content is followed by a theory for training, which answers further questions concerning training and competition. Aspects such as talent definition, talent development, squad composition, teaching and learning path, game system, position specifics or training atmosphere are discussed in detail.
This book is a must to expand the coach’s, trainer’s, or player’s library of soccer training knowledge.
