Book Description

20 Feb 2003

Science and Soccer provides a comprehensive and accessible analysis of the physiology, biomechanics and psychology behind the world's most popular sport, and offers 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
  • talent identification.

Science and Soccer represents a unique resource for students and academics in sports science and physical education. It should also be essential reading for all professional support staff working in the game, including coaches at all levels, physiotherapists, club doctors and sport psychologists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Advance Soccer Progress 6 Aug 2004
By M. Robert Steers - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fairly academic look at the world of soccer. Covering everything from psychology, physiology and diet. For those coaches out there who need that extra edge this is highly recommended. However it would not be ideal for those coaches just starting out, or with a youth squad.

The book bravely covers a lot of ground, and so can provide some sound insight into some parts of the game that are left out of standard coaching manuals.

It would not, however, suit readers who want to know particular information about the changes in biology during a game or other in depth science such as that.
