About

This study is being conducted for a master's dissertation. Our goal is to determine if there are physical performance benefits to performing the FIFA11+ soccer warm-up program in adult female soccer players over an eight week period. This topic has been studied primarily using male soccer players. The performance effects in adult female soccer players is currently unknown. This warm-up has been shown to reduce non-contact injury rates in soccer players aged >13. If performance benefits are demonstrated in this study, in addition to the reported injury reduction benefits of the FIFA11+ warm-up, program adherence and player performance could improve.

Inclusion criteria

  • Must be between the ages of 18 and 45
  • Must play a forward, midfield or defender position

Exclusion criteria

  • Mustn't play a goal keeper position. The physical demands of this position is drastically different than all other soccer positions. The training effects from practices and games are unique and may therefore influence the effects the FIFA11+ has on players of this particular positions.
  • Mustn't have an illness or injury preventing them from participating in soccer practice, games, and testing procedures. Injury or illness would likely result in poorer physical performance outcomes relative to healthy participants.
  • Mustn't miss a physical performance testing session. Pre- and posttest data is required to determine if there are changes in performance metrics in relation to both the intervention and control groups.
  • Mustn't be pregnant or of childbearing potential for the duration of the study (10 weeks). The PI and Co-Investigators are not familiar with each participant's reproductive health and history or how pregnancy may affect each participant's response to either the intervention or control group. It is therefore decided that participants that are pregnant or of childbearing potential will be removed from the study.
