Online Course: Constraints-led Model of training Soccer

  • Are you looking to improve the quality of your training sessions?
  • Do you want to build more effective tasks in your exercises?
  • Do you want to create exercises with higher transfers to the practice?

In this course, Luís Vilar, experienced coach and researcher, will explain you step-by-step everything about the state-of-art Constrain-led Model for Soccer Coaching. You will learn how to build training tasks manipulating the objectives, the rules, the difficulty and complexity in order to obtain better and more sustainable results.

At the end of this course, you will understand how training methodology meets the practice and how to design tasks based on this breakthrough model allowing you to produce exercises with greater transfer to the match situation.

This course issues a conclusion certificate that enables you to use the model at a proficient level!

    A very informative and useful course!

    This is a very interesting course that enables us to understand deeper how practices can be designed with the intent of developing a particular technical-tactical, psychosocial or physical component by manipulating the training variables (number of players, number of goals, time constraint, size of the practice area, etc.). The instructor also shows how practices can be more realistic and that a positive transfer to the game becomes more achievable. The scientific details described at the end enables the coach to categorize practices according to their difficulty and complexity.

    Great Training Methodology foundations

    This course as great curriculum, that will help anyone from football that needs to understand better training methodology and with that improve and develop better training task design.

    Great course

    This course is extremely interesting. They provide a new way to perceive all information regarding soccer, such as the importance of action fidelity when design small-sided games (or different tasks), how to maintain the coupling between perception-action, and constrain players' actions. I hope to see other courses like this! Great job!
