Getting Players to Look Up

on

I recently read a very interesting article where a 4th division Brazilian side recorded a higher pass completion rate when they played against top-flight Fluminense. And the secret? Shower caps!

Using the caps [instead of bibs in training] improves peripheral vision. It stops players from getting unnecessarily fancy – it makes them look up to see where their team-mates are instead of just running around like crazy. Edson Souza.
