The Complete Player
| || |
It is important for players to be allowed to have their own personality to achieve their goal – it can be stressful!
“The most important thing is to give your maximum”
The basis of technique are passing, control, shooting, tackling, heading, throw-in and goalkeeper.
This is a collective sport and your technical ability has to be joined into the game in many aspects.
Important areas for females are Aerobic and Anaerobic Capacity, Speed, Muscular Strength and Co-ordination. At the 2011 Women’s World Cup, the average distance covered by the 16 teams in the group stage was 10.215km (at different speeds). The average distance of a maximum sprint was 13.7m.
We aim to work on the individual physical training for different positions – taking into account the skills used in these positions as well as the types of exertion and distances – applying appropriate recovery time.
We recommend individual physical training based on the players characteristics, strengths and weaknesses during our training periods. We will test players and prepare a program for them.
The Football Federation Australia Curriculum will also be implemented within the program.
