Business visit to Ciudad del Futbol, home of the Real Federacion Espanola de Futbol (RFEF), Madrid on 15/3/11, where I had a meeting with Mr. Gines Melendes Sotos, head of coaching education at RFEF. Together we’re planning the launch of the 11+ countrywide campaign in Spain during September-October 2011.
„Health of the Football Player“ was the topic of the 20th edition (12-13/3/11) of this annual Italian Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Conference (with more than 1500 attendees), organized by S. Della Villa, (CEO) and Dr. G.Roi of ISOKINETIC Italia. The F-MARC team was actively present with several presentations, and the new 11+ poster specially prepared with the logo of the Italian Football Association (FIGC- Settore Tecnico) was distributed to all participants. The last day of the conference was specially dedicated to football coaches.
Together with my friends Nicola Maffiuletti and Franco Impellizzeri we were at the Istituto Padre Monti, in Saronno, in the north of Italy, at this prestigious one day congress (5/3/11), wich is organized yearly in honour & memory of Prof. Piero Mognoni, a former renowned italian physiology scientist. Title of my presentation was: „La prevenzione infortuni nel calcio: utopia o realtà?“
