FIFA 11+ soccer program

The FIFA 11+ warm up program was designed by FIFA’s Medical Assessment and Research Centre (F-MARC), the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center and the Santa Monica Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Research Foundation. Evaluations have shown a reduction in injuries as a result of this program. The 11+ focuses on strengthening of the core and leg muscles, and in addition, static, dynamic and reactive neuromuscular control, coordination, balance, agility and jump technique are improved.

The program manual outlines each exercise and contains visuals explaining the correct form, field set up and teaching techniques. For more information about the program, visit the FIFA 11+ website.
