The Influence of Situational Variables on Ball Possession in the South African Premier Soccer League

Introduction Over the years, performance analysis has grown drastically and has a vital role to play in the modern game of soccer ( Carling et al., 2005 ). Preparing soccer teams to play at the professional level is a multifaceted process because it is reliant on numerous individual and team-related characteristics. For many years, the most successful soccer teams in European competitions have adopted a style of play based on ball possession (also known as an indirect playing style), allowing them to dictate the play by controlling the game ( Bradley et al

Analysis of Tests Evaluating Sport Climbers’ Strength and Isometric Endurance

Introduction Sport climbing is becoming increasingly popular. Climbing can be performed for recreational purposes or as a competition, on both natural rocks and indoors. The growing interest in this form of physical activity makes it easier to organize sports events that quite naturally, involve the implementation of relevant training methods that prepare climbers to compete and win. As in any other sport discipline, the factors determining top performance must be precisely established to increase the effectiveness of athlete recruitment, selection and

Rethinking Monolithic Pathways to Success and Talent Identification: The Case of the Women's Japanese Volleyball Team and Why Height is Not Everything

et al., 2014 ) or alternative approaches to expertise ( Kulasegaram et al., 2013 ), TIDS programs aim at the early signalling of features suggesting potential for achieving expert performance levels ( Leite et al., 2009 ). The reasoning is that early identification of talent may assist sport systems in providing them with greater support and training conditions from an early stage, hopefully translating into optimal performance later on ( Pankhurst et al., 2013 ). TIDS programs therefore follow a backwards logic: first, they identify the factors behind success at
