Your guide to the four dimensions of Soccerkinetics


What is Soccerkinetics about?


Soccerkinetics is an innovative, creative and neuro-centered soccer training, in which basic techniques, such as passing, goal kicking or dribbling, are enhanced by a cognitive, coordinative and / or visual dimension. Thus, the training is designed to more than meet the requirements of a modern football player.



What does Soccerkinetics Training actually mean?


In Soccerkinetics training there are four dimensions:

We combine all these dimensions with the fourth dimension - the basic techniques in football: passing, dribbling & scoring.

This results in the Soccerkinetics formula:

The Cognitive dimension

Coaches often justify the defeats of their own team by saying that their players have made the wrong decisions in many situations. That is not an excuse either. However, by incorporating cognitive elements, you or your players can make the right decisions more often!

In general, skills such as anticipation, attention, creativity, speed of action and game intelligence are more important than ever for outstanding footballers. Only a few players are able to solve complex game situations well and quickly. That is why the demand for players who show a high speed of action and playing ability is getting louder and louder. There is still a lot of room for improvement, especially in amateur football. Many experts assume that cognitive training will gain immense importance in football. Soccerkinetics specifically incorporates elements of the cognitive dimension into the training to unlock the dormant potential of your brain.

The Coordinative dimension

Coordination is the interaction of different perception, control, regulation and motoric elements to an orderly, purposeful sequence of movements.

For you as a footballer, it is important to develop your coordination skills to the highest level. Why? Any form of purposeful movement depends on coordination. So, generally speaking, anyone who trains their coordination trains their ability to carry out high-quality movement programmes and to adapt them to the situation. In the context of coordination we speak of 7 basic skills:

These are:

  • Ability to differentiate - how hard do I play the ball?
  • Orientation ability - where am I on the course?
  • Responsiveness - how quickly do I react when a ball is deflected?
  • Coupling ability - how fluid are my movements?
  • Rhythm ability - how clean is my sprinting technique?
  • Conversion ability - how quickly can I adapt to a wet lawn?
  • Balance ability - how stable am I in duels?


In the training packages of Soccerkinetics you will find numerous exercise videos, which address and specifically optimize a variety of these coordination skills. In addition to certain movement tasks from the field of differential learning, your coordination as well as your technique in soccer will be stimulated by the Changing Game Device and neuroathletics training, which will lead to unexpected improvements.


The Changing Game Device

In the Changing Game Devices, the principle is to continuously change your game device, i.e. the ball you are training with. This allows you to achieve greater improvements in your technique more quickly.

Now you might ask yourself, why all this? Let me ask you a question in return?

Which country has consistently produced the best technical footballers over the last 60 years?

Whether it's Pelé, Zico, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho or now Neymar - Brazil has always managed to produce the most technically skilled players. Why is that so?

A decisive factor is certainly the circumstances in which many Brazilian footballers have grown up. For most of them, a high-quality football and a level, beautiful turf was the exception. Instead, Brazilian youth players found themselves in environments where they played with rifles, tennis balls or old leather balls. At the same time, they played on completely different surfaces. Sometimes on grass, sometimes in the sand, then again on asphalt. These constant new conditions, to which the players had to adapt again and again, have trained their technique extremely well. The background to this is that the players are constantly confronted with new challenges due to the changing conditions. A tennis ball is much smaller than a football and at the same time bounces differently. When playing on sand the ball can always bounce. Accordingly, full attention and concentration is required. In contrast, football on asphalt is much faster. These constantly new challenges and deviations from the norm reflect what is known in sports science circles as differential learning. Learning effects are not created by constantly repeating patterns or movements, but only by creating so-called 'differences'. Accordingly, it is not surprising why these players have an extremely strong technique.

In this respect, the following balls are suitable as change game devices and should be used regularly in addition to "normal" football:

The Visual dimension

Our eye influences almost 90% of our perception. We are affected by 11 million sensations per second. With Soccerkinetics you become a 360° player. You improve your perception, expand your field of vision and keep your overview on the court. Your eyes are the key to success.


The Eye Patch

Augenklappe Fußball
Eye Patch Football

You cover your dominant eye with the eye patch. Aside from the fact that it's new and fun for most players, the weak eye will have to work hard to keep track. The background is that three-dimensional vision, the view into depth, is erased. This requires a stronger concentration to make friends with the room. Furthermore, the radius of the field of vision is limited. If you remove the eye patch from your dominant eye in the last third of the training, you will clearly feel and enjoy the difference.

  • Your eye-hand-leg coordination as well as your ability to balance benefit greatly from training with the eye patch
  • You gain in stress resistance and concentration when you cover your dominant eye
  • You expand your field of vision and optimize your spatial perception and peripheral vision
  • You're forced to look over your shoulder

Eye dominance test:

To do this, stand upright and concentrate with both eyes open on a distant target. The body should be aligned so that both shoulders are equally far away from the target.

The arms are stretched out and raised, and the hands are brought together/over each other in such a way that the target can still be observed in a concentrated manner through the hole that has been created.

Now put your hands on top of each other so that this hole gets smaller and smaller until finally only the target is visible.

If one closes the right eye and the target is still visible, there is left dominance.

Control by closing the other eye: The target is no longer visible.

Alternatively, you can look through the hole created with your hands and look at the tip of someone else's nose. The eye of yours that the person sees through the hole is your dominant eye.


Training recommendation:

  • As a rule, the dominant eye should be covered
  • But you can also change from time to time to train the one-eyed vision with your dominant eye
  • After a period of 7 minutes, the eye patch should be removed for a few minutes
  • That is, rather train several sets with the eye patch than a long time in a row
  • In case of dizziness, stop the exercise immediately and remove the eye patch

Die Red-Green Glasses

Rot-Grün Brille Fußball
Red-Green Glasses Football

The red-green glasses ensure that one eye only sees red, while the other is permanently polarized green. To understand the training effect of red-green glasses, it is important to know that the right half of the brain sees with the left eye and the left half of the brain sees with the right eye. Ideally, with the red-green glasses, you almost take in the surroundings as you would without this aid. If this is the case, you can assume that the brain hemispheres are acting and working equally. If, on the other hand, you see predominantly red or predominantly green areas in spatiotemporal constancy, then one half of the brain is more dominant than the other. The training trick is to look through the red-green glasses during the exercises until the two complementary colours do not take or give each other anything visually.

  • The interaction of your eyes improves
  • Your two halves of the brain work together in a more balanced way



Training recommendation:

  • Regularly put on the red-green glasses the other way round. So that once the right eye sees through the green lens and the left one through the red side. In the next exercise the left eye should look through the green lens and the right eye through the red lens.
  • In case of dizziness stop the exercise immediately and take off the red-green glasses

Pinhole Glasses

Pinhole glasses are glasses with holes. It is therefore often referred to as pinhole glasses. Pinhole glasses are used for visual relaxation and can be part of an individual, naturopathic eye training. We all know that our physical performance deteriorates if we move too little or only one-sidedly and do not pay attention to our body.

Only with our eyes do we not seem to "see" this, although they are constantly overstrained and also extremely one-sidedly burdened by our modern information society and the increasing flood of data through computers, television and print media.

This is where the pinhole glasses come in. If you look through the pinhole glasses, you will see an image consisting of many individual segments that can be focused very sharply. These are put together by your brain with increasing mobility of the eye muscles to form an overall picture.

  • You can put on the pinhole glasses during the Soccerkinetics exercises to stimulate your brain even more. The brain has to produce a sharp image on the many focused single segments
  • For prevention and general relaxation of the eyes, it is also useful to regularly include the Grid Glasses in the multidimensional exercises
  • Overall, wearing pinhole glasses has a significant calming effect on your retina
  • Your colour perception and light tolerance will improve


Training recommendation:

  • At the beginning of the training, 5 minutes wearing time has proven to be useful
  • In case of dizziness stop the exercise immediately and take off the pinhole glasses

TPRO-Dribble Glasses Football

The dribbling glasses prevent any view downwards. You are forced to dribble the ball without seeing it. The T-PRO dribbling glasses force you as a footballer to keep your head up while you control the football, so that you can overlook the field.

  • Because of the obstructed view of the football, you train with the dribbling glasses the recognition of game situations
  • Your playing intelligence and ability to play improves with the dribbling glasses
  • The dribbling glasses improve your reaction time to defenders and increase your confidence on the pitch


Training recommendation:

  • There are no time restrictions for this element. You can wear the dribbling glasses as long as you want
  • Since the view downwards is blocked, you should always check your field for obstacles, holes, etc. before you start playing

Strobe Shutter Glasses

Strobobrille Fußball
Strobe Shutter Glasses Football

Strobe Shutter Glasses are shutter goggles that partially deprive the wearer of the goggles of visual information. This happens by the lenses becoming alternately dark and light again. Your brain has to learn to do what it wants when wearing the glasses, without complete visual information.

  • The lack of visual information makes your brain more efficient, because it has to learn to execute the movement correctly and to anticipate situations in competition better
  • If you then train without strobe goggles, all visual information is now available again. This increases the speed of reaction
  • The quick perception of your surroundings improves immensely


Training recommendation:

  • After a duration of 7 minutes the strobe should be taken off for a few minutes
  • That means, rather train several sets with the Strobe Shutter Glasses than a long time in a row
  • In heavy rain it is not suitable to train with the Strobe Shutter Glasses
  • In case of dizziness stop the exercise immediately and take off the Strobe Shutter Glasses
