Abstract

ABSTRACT: SOCCER COACHES HAVE BEEN INCREASING THE USE OF SMALL-SIDED GAMES IN SOCCER TRAINING. THESE SMALL-SIDED GAMES SHOW A SIMILAR EFFICIENCY AS TRADITIONAL RUNNING METHODS (WITHOUT THE USE OF A BALL) IN DEVELOPING PHYSICAL FITNESS IN SOCCER PLAYERS. MOREOVER, SMALL-SIDED GAMES ENABLE THE DEVELOPMENT OF BOTH TECHNICAL SKILLS AND TACTICAL ACTIONS. HOWEVER, THERE IS LITTLE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE PROPER ORGANIZATION THAT IS NECESSARY FOR SMALL-SIDED GAMES TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED EFFECTS IN SOCCER PLAYERS. THIS REVIEW AIMS TO SUMMARIZE THE PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS ON SOCCER PLAYERS PROMOTED BY SMALL-SIDED GAMES AND TO DEVELOP A METHODOLOGICAL SCHEMATIZATION FOR ORGANIZING SMALL-SIDED GAMES.
