Description

Written specifically with the sports science/physical education student and soccer coach in mind, "Science and Soccer" provides a view of the application of sports science and coaching skills to soccer. The book offers a comprehensive and accessible analysis of the science behind the world's most popular sport, and important guidance on how science translates into practice. Fully revised and updated to include new scientific research and data, it examines every key facet of the sport, including: players' anatomy; physiology; psychology and biomechanics; coaching and training; nutrition; injury prevention and rehabilitation; soccer surfaces and equipment; match analysis; growth and development in youth players; and talent identification. "Science and Soccer" provides a resource for students and academics in sports science and physical education, and it should also be useful professional support staff working in the game, including coaches at all levels, physiotherapists, club doctors and sport psychologists.
