Rethink your Drills, Improve your Skillz
SPORT, IT’S ALL IN THE MIND
Everything that you do on the pitch, is more than just the performance of movements and techniques. This is because both the quality and the speed of your actions are largely decided in your head. With every action, your brain goes through 4 phases:
Firstly, you gather information through your senses. For example, the position of teammates and opponents, distances and free spaces. The majority of this information is collected via the eyes.
This flood of information must then be processed, organized and interpreted at lightning speed, giving you the basis upon which to make decisions quickly and correctly.
Only then is the action physically executed, as your brain activates all the muscles and joints involved in the movement.
„THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GOOD FOOTBALLER AND A GREAT FOOTBALLER IS DECISION MAKING. DOING THE RIGHT THINGS IN THE RIGHT MOMENT“
JÜRGEN KLOPP, FC LIVERPOOL
At SKILLSHIRTZ, we are convinced that in order to reach an athletes full potential, all four phases of the action process must be trained and developed in a targeted way.
Conventional training approaches tend to focus only on the last phase of the process, i.e. action and movement. Perception, processing of information and decision making are often neglected.
At SKILLSHIRTZ, we develop sessions, exercises and training tools that specifically train and improve the cognitive abilities of athletes, concentrating in particular on the first three phases of the action process.
