Maybe you are asking what exactly is a passing pattern and how will it make my team better? Passing patterns are designed patterns which players execute in a pre-set order. The patterns can range from very simple to very complex. The 20 Professional Soccer patterns in the book can be adjusted to fit many levels. These are the same patterns that FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich FC use in training. The most important thing to remember when training passing patterns is “The Secret Is In The Details”. What I mean by details is as follows; firmness of the pass, proper timing and movement of the receiving player, proper body position of the player receiving the ball, proper technique of the passer and receiver, eye contact with receiver before passing the ball, using correct passing and receiving surface, establishing a rhythm of play with teammates, executing the drill at a challenging level and always remaining focused. If you want your team to improve their passing ability then this is the book for you. Pay attention to the details, make sure the patterns are trained under the deliberate practice guidelines and keep it fun.

This book focuses on how to incorporate dynamic exercises into passing patterns for fitness and technique. Today's modern passing patterns often contain a physical element that is intended to build fitness, strength, coordination, quickness or agility. Equipment such as speed rings, miniature hurdles, coaching sticks, medicine balls, balancing foam, exercise balls, mannequins, boxes and speed ladders are all elements you can use to create dynamic exercises. In this book I provide 15 passing patterns from professional and college teams for you to study. These patterns will give you a basic foundation so you can construct your own dynamic passing patterns exercises. The patterns can go to goal or be self-contained. Keep the following in mind when teaching a passing pattern: pass with the inside of the foot and control with the inside of the foot, play to the proper foot of the receiving player, be sure body position is correct for receiving and passing, pop-off the mannequin or cone to receive the ball at the correct time "coordinated timed movement with the passer", be sure to have eye contact with player receiving the ball before passing (don't just pass the ball to pass it if the receiving player is not ready), play firm quality balls to feet and keep the rhythm and tempo of the drill quick and realistic. When working the dynamic part of the pattern be fast, powerful and sharp in all movements. Passing patterns can even be used as mini-fitness circuits. Adjust the number of players in the pattern to give more or less rest or more or less time for exercises in-between the passes. Adding physical exercises like push-ups, squats, lunges and much more can easily be done. In this book I concentrated on speed work but feel free to adjust the patterns for the desired physical and technical outcomes. I recommend inside of foot passing and receiving but if you wanted to change the technical emphasis feel free. I would recommend all players be proficient with inside of the foot passing and receiving before adding other passing and receiving techniques. It is helpful to time the patterns in order to make it possible to better measure the total workload of the players. Monitoring workload is very important in terms of the week's periodization training plan. You can easily change the distance of the pattern, the number of players, the dynamic elements and the time trained to reduce or increase the workload. I hope you enjoy the book and get some good use out of the patterns.

This book contains the best possession drills I have used in my 20+ years of coaching. The training sessions come from Barcelona FC, Everton FC, Arsenal FC, Wigan Athletic, Liverpool FC, Stoke City, Valencia FC, Sporting Lisbon FC, Inter Milan, Ajax FC and many more famous clubs. Coaching possession is about teaching decision-making, guiding players to become problem solvers, helping players understand the importance of positioning and placing players in training sessions that challenge them. One of the most important aspects of possession training is the number of meaningful touches a player gets. A competitive possession drill should demand player's play on the edge of their ability to be successful while receiving many touches. The tempo of the drills should be high, forcing quickness of thought and speed of play. In the modern game players must be able to play under pressure without losing the ball. Players and teams that can hold the ball under pressure know how to save seconds on the ball. Playing possession soccer is all about positioning and coordinated movement. Without proper positioning keeping the ball would be impossible. Positioning and coordinated movement allows players to create overloads all over the field. Creating a numerical advantage is critical to unbalancing the opponent, keeping the ball and scoring goals. Focus on the details when training your team. Make sure you are providing an environment for maximum learning and growth. There will always be debates about possession soccer and whether controlling possession means winning more games. I personally believe players and teams that possess the ball well have more tools and options to break their opponents down. Possession training makes players well-rounded, skillful, composed, gives them the ability to find soccer solutions on the field and increases passing accuracy. Teams with higher passing accuracy win more games. Teams with overwhelming possession (over 65%) win more games as well. "45 Professional Soccer Possession Drills" will be a valuable tool for developing your players' possession ability.

Basketball is now over a century old. Cages to Jump Shots offers an unforgettable glimpse of its exciting and eccentric early years, beginning in 1891 when James Naismith drew up the first rules, through decades of growing popularity and professionalism, and culminating with its fundamental transformation in the 1950s, when the twenty-four-second shot clock and team foul limit were instituted. Along the way we learn about all those who were drawn to the game?players, officials, owners, and fans?and why so many came to love it. ø Drawing on extensive research and a host of interviews with veteran players, Robert W. Peterson vividly recreates the rough-and-tumble basketball games of long ago and shows why basketball has become such a celebrated part of American life today. This Bison Books edition features an updated appendix of early pro basketball teams.

Sustainability is a key framework for analyzing biological systems—and turfgrass is no exception. It is part of a complex that encompasses turfgrass interactions with different environments and the suitability of different turfgrasses for specific environments. In addition to its biological role, turfgrass—in the form of lawns, green spaces, and playing surfaces—brings beneficial sociological effects to an increasingly urbanized society. This book presents a comprehensive overview of current knowledge and issues in the field of turfgrass research and management, including the genetics and breeding, the diseases and pests, and the ecology of turfgrasses, and will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers.
