SCANNING - How to Train it and Develop Game Awareness: See More, Think Quicker, Play better (Paperback)
The Soccer eyeQ methodology is a proven and successful coaching method to increase scanning and improve game awareness, to provide your players with the tools to make better decisions.
Pep Guardiola: "Taking the right decision in the right moment. That is the most difficult thing in football."
You will learn how to train scanning and game awareness through innovative training practices. Your players (and team) will take in information quicker, create a picture of what's around them, create an essential habit, and greatly enhance their decision making skills.
Too many players focus intently on the ball, control it, and only then look up to see the options. The Soccer eyeQ practices use simple constraints which force players to scan more frequently and read the game situation. With the "picture" created, your players will be quicker, sharper, and make better decisions in all situations.
The top players in the world scan the most and this is your chance to develop your players and improve their game awareness to scan like the best; De Bruyne, Mbappe, De Jong, Xavi, Fabregas, Iniesta, Henry, Lampard, and Gerrard.
Xavi: "Think quickly, look for spaces. That's what I do: look for spaces. All day. I'm always looking. All day, all day."
The Soccer eyeQ methods can be easily added into your training sessions to increase scanning, making players faster and more effective in training and matches.
