What Research Tells the Coach About Soccer.
Reilly, Thomas
A complete profile of the average (male) soccer player is established through the study of ten topflight soccer teams in the United States and abroad. Statistical averages for team age, strength and muscular power, body size and composition, agility and flexibility, lung capacity, and various other physical and physiological characteristics are given. Sociological and psychological profiles of soccer players in general are examined. The demands of competition in differing field positions are discussed, and suggestions are given for training routines to develop overall endurance as well as motor skill. References are included.
