Football – A balance between speed, power and finesse


Football , or Soccer as it is called in the US, is truly the global game with an estimated 240 million people regularly playing the game.  Brazilian legend Pele called it “the beautiful game” and it is so true as all aspects of agility, balance and fitness are embodied in this game.   

On the one hand minimal (but logical) rules, an elemental appeal to the instincts of combatant and juggler, a minimum of paraphernalia. On the other an almost infinite range of tactical variations, of combinations between set plays and improvisation, of balances between technical finesse, speed, power and physical bravery.
