505x200_WCFS

Soccer Fitness Inc. has been privileged to have been a part of the past three World Congresses on Science and Football, since the 6th edition in Antalya, Turkey, 2007.  Earlier this month, we received confirmation that the abstract from our study ‘Effectiveness of Treadmill and Ground Based Over-Speed Training on Sprint Time and High Intensity Running Ability in Youth Female Soccer Players’ has been accepted as an oral presentation at the 8th World Congress on Science and Football, to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, May 19-23, 2015.  This study was conducted using our own unique and revolutionary harnessed high speed running treadmill protocols. In the study, our protocols yielded significant improvements in acceleration and jump height in soccer players.

The Congress is aimed at academics, sports medicine professionals, fitness coaches, and soccer coaches with an interest in sports science.  We will be providing more information about the Congress, including biographies of the presenters and summaries of some presentation topics, in the weeks/months ahead.  Anyone who is interested in registering is encouraged to visit the official website:
