Mind & Body Training
Soccer can be quite complex. It certainly entails more than just running fast. When you talk about speed in your game, here are some of the attributes that will make you a better player…
Quick acceleration/deceleration in short distance or over 10-15 yards
Overall speed, endurance, strength and power
Speed in possession of the ball
Quickness of feet and stability
Lateral speed, the ability to quickly change direction
The ability to execute skills quickly
Last but not least… speed of thought
Speed in soccer does not only relate to body movement, but also the speed of thought. We know that improving your cognitive speed will allow you to react to situations on the pitch faster, compete with higher levels of confidence and provide an advantage over the player next to you.
