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 improves your football skills and makes you two-footed. SenseBall also improves the performance of all sportspeople for whom speed and precise 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 encourages muscle memory, which will improve your football performance. Such muscle memory won't happen without strict and structured guidance.
In addition to the sports benefit, 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 most injuries, 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 allow quick adjustment of the length of the string to player height.
The ball is especially conceived for intensive use. Its size 3 (a circumference between 58 and 60 cm), makes the player concentrate and eliminate aggressive, wild kicks. So, the player’s coordination and capacity for learning increase notably. The ball contains no PVC, which does not comply with European REACH standards, but rather just TPU, a more environmentally friendly alternative.
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 of how to perform the task and the details to focus on, either as a player or a coach.
Thanks to its design 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 access the SenseBall exercises wherever you are (football field, gym, schoolyard, garden, terrace, beach…), we have developed a mobile application, accessible through a link in your private account. You will thus be able to view the exercise videos in complete freedom.
Our experience has shown that young players love training with the SenseBall football ball and 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 precepts.
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 included video conferences allow you to be introduced to the key concepts of CogiTraining and to master the principles of SenseBall so that your players can optimize their use of it.
