To examine the prevalence of disordered eating (DE) in elite male and female soccer players and the influence of perfectionism. Using a cross-sectional design, elite male (n = 137) and female (n = 70) soccer players and non-athlete controls (n = 179) completed the clinical perfectionism questionnaire (CPQ-12) and the eating attitudes test (EAT-26) to assess perfectionism and DE risk, respectively. Male soccer players had higher EAT-26 scores than controls (10.4 ± 9.9 vs. 6.8 ± 6.7; P = 0.001), b...

Purpose To determine whether training duration is a predisposing factor in potential maladaptations in talent development programmes that promote early specialisation in elite youth soccer. Methods Training times and type of 184 elite soccer players, from the under-9 to under-21 age groups (age 9.4 to 18.4 yrs; stature 1.38 to 1.82 m; body mass 32.2 to 76.2 kg) were recorded. Results Total training time progressively increased between the under-9 (268 ± 25 min/week) and under-14 (477 ± 19 min/we...

ABSTRACTThis study examined if subjective wellbeing in soccer players was affected by match location, match result and opposition quality before a match (PRE), 1 day after (POST-1), and 3 days after a match (POST-3). Eleven professional male soccer players from the under 23 squad playing in the Premier League 2 division completed a wellbeing questionnaire before and after 17 matches. Match training load (session-rating perceived exertion) was not different, regardless of the location, result, or...

Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to record normative isometric maximum voluntary force (MVF) data at baseline and after an 8-week training period using the isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP) for English Premier League academy players and a maturation-matched control group. Methods: In total, 155 English Premier League academy players across under 9 to under 21 age groups and 93, maturation-, weight- and height-matched control participants performed an IMTP. In total, 142 and 62 of the ...

Maturation status is a confounding factor when identifying talent in elite youth soccer players (ESP). By comparing performance of ESP and control participants (CON) matched for maturation status, the aims of our study were to establish the importance of acceleration, sprint, horizontal-forward jump and vertical jump capabilities for determining elite soccer playing status at different stages of maturation. ESP (n=213; age, 14.0±3.5 yrs) and CON (n=113; age, 15.0±4.4 yrs) were grouped using year...

Elite youth soccer player’s performance depends on a multitude of factors (Stolen et al. 2005). Muscular force production capability is of likely importance due to the frequency of powerful actions that occur within match play (Faude et al. 2012). Little is known though of the training undertaken at elite youth soccer academies to increase muscular force production capabilities particularly across maturation groups. There is also little evidence around the nature, or genetic influence on this va...
