Periodization In Soccer

 




Understanding and implementing a true periodization model in youth sports requires.....well a doctorate in sports medicine, specializing in periodization!  However, with the science of periodization coming in to the mainstream, the information coming down to the youth culture is invaluable.  

If you're not familiar with periodization, it's the systematic planning of athletic or physical training. The aim is to reach the best possible performance in the most important competition of the year. It involves progressive cycling of various aspects of a training program during a specific period of time.  


  We've copied several articles and studies that are intended to help educate parents, coaches and players on the science of periodization and it's influence on the youth soccer culture.
