Abstract

summary: The frequent use of balance exercises aids in the protection of athletes from possible injuries. We suggest that coaches include sport-specific balance exercises into a daily soccer-training routine. We recommend the use of devices such as mini-trampolines and balance boards with the combination of certain soccer abilities to be more interesting to the players.
