iStage 3 - Handling the Ball

Teaching Material of the Month: Using hands to increase motion dynamics in football

The use of your hands during a football game may not only decide whether you receive a yellow or red card: It also influences your ability to move and react dynamically. In this teaching unit the students examine the impact of the hand positions on the physical activity, acceleration, power, energy and performance of a football player. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:

This and other teaching units of the brochure 'iStage 3' are available in
Czech, English, French, German, Hungarian,
PolishSpanish and Swedish.
