eFUNiño - Innovative training control via LED-equipment in soccer
Training’s effectiveness depends in big parts on the optimal fit of the training’s demands and the players’ performance level. For effective training of perception and quickness of action constant, controlled adaption of the training environment’s complexity is needed. In football the main path of perception is the visual. That is why, coaches should be able to vary selectively the visual cues of the training environment during perception training depending on the performance level.

Innovative and intelligent LED-equipment offers possibilities for adaptions of the environment’s complexity in real time. Goals and vests, with attached LED-lights can be used to change team membership or goal constellation during training in real time. This demands players‘ constant vigilance and cognitive flexibility. The adaption can be applied manually or be controlled via smartphone app. Using such applications, the coach is equipped with more capacity for observation and coaching.

During the workshop, following content will be shown:
1. Training control at mini-football (FUNiño) with the help of LED-equipment
2. Driving of different game scenarios without external verbal advice
3. Presentation of complex training goals with different light scenarios throughout the vests and goals (e.g. diagonal play, training with spatial restrictions)

For the setup, the following devices are needed:
- Mini soccer field (25x30 meters)
- 4 mini goals (2 m wide)
- 8 volunteers to play (8 to 9 years old children)
- LED technology (brought by the FAU team)
- 1x 220V socket close to the field

The workshop’s duration is 90 minutes.
