The methods of coordination abilities improvement of football players of 14–15 years old


In modern football the main volume of competitive activity is carried out in probabilistic and unexpected situations which demand from athletes the manifestation of resourcefulness, speed of reaction, ability to concentrate and switching of attention, spatial and temporary accuracy of movements, their adequacy to suddenly changing external conditions. All these qualities in theory of physical education and sport are connected with the level of development of coordination abilities that causes their priority in efficiency of training and competitive activity of football players. The skill level of the football player in many respects depends on his ability to coordinate the movements and to be guided in space. It allows to win time, to remain in force, play the game at high speed, combinationally and productively. The importance of movements’ coordination and spatial orientation in activity of modern football players constantly increases. It is connected with need to work in the conditions of rigid single combat, in unusual situations, at deficiency of time and space. Younger and middle age is optimum for development of coordination abilities (up to 14-15 years). Therefore, the pedagogical influences aimed at the development of coordination of movements and spatial orientation give bigger effect if systematically and purposefully to apply them at this age.
