injury prevention


11+ Manual

Do you would like to learn more about 11+, the injury prevention programme for amateur football/soccer, developed and studied by F-MARC? In this new 11+ MANUAL you’ll find: history, structure, key elements of the programme, why motivation and compliance are crucial in injury prevention, and tips how to teach the exercises.

F-MARC is promoting 11+ worldwide, within FIFA Member Associations (MAs) (as an example: Spain, Japan, Brazil, Italy, and other) and within FIFA Coaching Courses. The goal is to incorporate and implement 11+ in the coaching education at FIFA and MA’s level.

Authors of this booklet are: Mario Bizzini, PhD, PT (F-MARC research associate), Astrid Junge PhD (Head of Research F-MARC), and Prof. Jiri Dvorak (Chairman of F-MARC).
Graphic design and layout was realised by our collaborator and friend Cony von Grebel, of Von Grebel Motion, Zürich, Switzerland.
