The main objective of the SOCCERMAT® training method is the development of key sports skills for playing soccer. Among those skills are: balance, proprioception, flexibility, speed, strength, sensomotor coordination and rhythm.

The SOCCERMAT® method should be used to complement the other training routines traditionally used by coaches to teach soccer skills.

Boys and girls from seven-years-old and up use the SOCCERMAT®

Creativity

One of the priorities of the SOCCERMAT® is to stimulate creativity in the soccer player.
This is achieved through a two-step process:
First, the player learns to innovate by combining together the different SOCCERMAT® sequences he/she has learned.

The "modular" structure of the SOCCERMAT® sequences makes it possible to "connect" them together, as all sequences were designed to have the same starting and ending point.

The second step allow a more advanced player to creates sequences of his own, using the basic elements of motion in the SOCCERMAT®

Symmetry



Several of the SOCCERMAT® sequences were designed in duplicate, once for the right leg and once for the left leg, so that both legs can be exercised equally and developed at a comparable skill level.

In a game situation, the soccer player who is skillful with both legs, doubles his possibilities, since he has learned to perform successfully with both legs.

To teach the sense of rhythm to soccer players, different "rhythm tracks" have been included in the Instructions DVD. A metronome can also be used.

Soccer players should be sensitized to three elements of rhythm: beat, accent and pause.

Rhythm should be understood from the viewpoint of four factors: the soccer player's body, the ball, the rival and the teammates.

By observing the best soccer players in the World, it becomes evident that they are "masters of rhythm" .




Skills Levels


The SOCCERMAT® sequences are classified into three Skills Levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

Using the Evaluation Forms provided in the Instructions DVD, the coach can determine how a player measures up against specific personal and team objectives.

Group Dynamics


Group exercises can also be implemented within the SOCCERMAT® method. The main advantage of group exercises is that they are generally more challenging than individual ones.








Warming up



As with any physical activity, it is highly recommended to warm up before starting to exercise.


Using the SOCCERMAT®, coaches may design warm-up routines for the different muscular groups such as: feet, ankles, calves, knees, thighs, hips, waist, back, shoulders, neck, arms, forearms and hands.




Other Practice Formats



Several contiguous SOCCERMAT® can be used so that the player develops skills on wider spaces.

A small soccer goal can be placed on one of the sides of the SOCCERMAT® for the development of additional sports skills.

Also a training mannequin may be used.

Additionally, plays can be designed and practiced that cover the whole field with several players.

 
 



Multiplataform


The SOCCERMAT® sequences can be displayed on a TV, a desktop computer, a laptop, and also downloaded to i-Phones, i-Pods, cellulars and other portable devices, making the SOCCERMAT® Method 100% portable.
