Technical Sense and its Impacts on Accuracy of Response and Economy of Effort in Professional Algerian Soccer Players

Mohammed Zerf, Hadjar Mohamed Kherfane

The aim of technical training is to strengthen and develop sports skills. The basic information is acquired from senses (visual, audio, locomotives and positional). The purpose of the study was to test professional soccer players’ dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting in complex, applied into two forms (with and without competitive activity) to determine the impact of the two situations on player’s technical sense. Material and methods. We studied the results of 140 elite male soccer players aged 20 ± 4, with body mass 77.9 ± 5.9kg and body height of 1.71 ± 1.55. The study took place in the OPAPS «PE Institute» laboratory in the University of Mostaganem during 2016-2017academic year. Results and discussion. According to our data a significantly more total time was required for soccer players in the situation two compared with traditional situation one in all parameters studies. These results were confirmed by the Paired T-test and correlation Paired Samples Test set and showed an inverted strongly significant correlation between these two situations. It was difficult for players to perform technical actions under pressures integrated into situation two. Comparing the total time and the time for performing each skill due to pressure situations we suppose that a coach needs a valid method to analyse the adequacy of training. The obtained results showed difficulty to perform technical actions under pressures integrated into situation two. We concluded that a coach needed a valid method to analyse if their technique components are on the right pathway compared to their purely physical variables. Our protocol test confirmed that a player’s acts to solve his problems require well-developed neuromuscular function which in turn demands form players to read the environment variables for better concordances as a strategy to improve his dynamic decision making including continual decisions concomitant with task-related trade-offs, found on its operational cognitive functions communication based on its visual processing, timing, reaction time perception, and anticipation. Conclusion. The study results gave accurate indicators for better playing strategy and comprehension which are necessary for the player during the match. We consider that further studies should deal with methods for judging players mental abilities associated with their actions.
