Your first RESWITCH training

To get started, your players need information about the importance of speed of action in football. A good example is the ball contact times of the 2006 World Cup with 2.9 seconds and the 2018 World Cup with 1.5 seconds. The ball contact time is the time between the first and last contact with the ball by a player. This already shows that footballers today have to perceive and decide much more quickly than just a few years ago.

1. Preparation

To teach your players the RESWITCH training method, place two bibs and two goal markers on the floor in front of the training group.

2. Introduce bibs & goal markers

  1. Ask the players what is special about the bibs? (different categories are shown)
  2. Ask the players what different symbols, numbers and letters they recognize.
  3. Ask the players what the different categories might be about (new team affiliations are always possible)

3. Explain the training method

Explain to your players that the players in the same category play together. They play on the goal that shows their category . In the color category, the “reds” play together and score goals on the goal with the red goal marking. With a switch, the team composition changes to the newly named letter, number or symbol category.

4. “Dry exercise” for thinking along

Give different commands and let the players think about whether they are playing together or against each other with the two shirts in front of them and which goal markers they should shoot at.

5. Training goals

Ask the players how the training method particularly challenges them? Which skills are the focus of the training? (The players are required to take their eyes off the ball with every SWITCH and correctly perceive the situation, make new decisions quickly and act correctly .)

6. RESWITCH Training

It's best to start with a small game at the beginning. With RESWITCH you have many options for designing your training. When you order a bib set, you will receive a detailed starter manual that will help you in your first training sessions.
