Player Monitoring and Youth Soccer - Soccer Parenting Association

Player Monitoring and Youth Soccer

In this interview I ask:

  • Can you tell us about Player Monitoring and how it can affect our kids?

Dr. Toby Brooks discusses:

  • How far player monitoring has come from the initial core temperature and cortisol levels analysis to the FitBit and Fuel Band to companies like Dr. John Cone’s Fit for 90.
  • How player monitoring can allow coaches, performance coaches and athletic trainers to understand athletes like never before.
  • How player monitoring supports Periodization.
  • The balance between player monitoring and building a rapport with the players.
