What is SenseBallMuch more than a football training ball
The partner that makes you a better player
SenseBall is much more than a football training ball. SenseBall is NEURO STRATEGY, a complete football partner that allows improving your football skills and becoming two-footed. SenseBall also improves the performance of all sportspeople for whom speed and agility of leg movements are essential (basketball, tennis, skiing, handball…).
With SenseBall, you train your brain, not just your muscles. This thesis developed within the Department of Psychology of Lund University (Sweden) provides evidence that four weeks of synchronized metronome training improved the participant’s motor timing and synchronization abilities, and showed influence on skill performance in soccer players.
Repetition of specific soccer movements with our insights regarding kinesiology, biomechanics, cognitive neurology and neuro psychology will install the correct information in your brain. Respecting brain timing will improve your soccer performances. With no strict and structured guidance, it will go wrong and won’t work.
In addition to the sports aspect, it should be noted that CogiTraining and the practice of SenseBall, by developing and organizing the brain, enhance learning at school. Within our research into sports studies in association with the University of Leuven, we have seen that after practising our method for a year, on average children’s results at school had improved by 10% and their general behaviour had slightly improved (calmer, better concentration).
Finally, SenseBall has the advantage that it can be used during a rehabilitation period. For numerous cases of injury, the player can keep his muscles toned and refine his technique, indoors or out, with less risk of aggravating his injury.
THE FOOTBALL TRAINING BALL
Its ergonomic handle means that SenseBall can be just as easily used with your right or your left hand. The handle is conceived to also allow quickly adjusting the length of the string to player height.
The ball is especially conceived for intensive use. With a circumference of 48 cm, the size of the ball makes the player concentrate and eliminate aggressive, wild kicks. So, the player’s capacity for learning, his perception and coordination increase notably. The ball contains no PVC, which does not comply with European REACH standards, and so it contains just TPU, which is more environmentally friendly.
50 EXERCISE VIDEOS
The purchase of SenseBall includes 50 online exercise videos in your private account. These videos get increasingly complex in accordance with the specific needs of each player. Each exercise contains an in-depth explanation on how to perform the task and what you must pay attention to, either as a player or a coach.
Thanks to its conception and the online exercise videos, a player who practises with SenseBall makes an average of 500,000 touches of the ball in a season, whereas it is calculated that a professional footballer, in all of the matches and training sessions in which he participates, makes a maximum of 50,000 touches of the ball per season.
A MOBILE APPLICATION
In order to practice SenseBall wherever you are (football field, gym, schoolyard, garden, terrace, beach…), we have developed a mobile application. A link in your private account gives you free access to this application. You will thus be able to view the exercise videos in complete freedom.
Our experience enables us to note that young players love training with the SenseBall football ball. that traditional warm-ups, that they sometimes find boring, can be advantageously accompanied or substituted by a SenseBall session. After fifteen minutes’ practice they will already have touched the ball between 1,000 and 1,500 times.
A COMPLETE DIDACTICAL PROGRAM
We want to guarantee that there will be a neurological effect in the brain during the learning process. This is why during all the training sessions a number of didactical and organisational principles need to be respected.
Our SenseBall drills respect many biomechanical (posturology), kinesiological, neurophysiological and cognitive neurological advises.
By following the step by step methodology we provide you with in your private account, you will achieve your goals and get the best out of your skills.
2 VIDEO CONFERENCES WITH MICHEL BRUYNINCKX
The purchase of SenseBall includes two video conferences of one hour each on SenseBall and CogiTraining. Michel Bruyninckx, the designer and promoter of SenseBall and CogiTraining, is often asked to deliver seminars around the world. In its last annual convention, the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) invited him to explain in full detail the principles and benefits of the SenseBall practice and CogiTraining method.
If you are a coach or technical coordinator, these two video conferences included in your private account allow you to master the principles of SenseBall for an optimised use by your players and to be introduced to the key concepts of CogiTraining.
