Tactical Periodization - A Proven Successful Training Model

Learn the Tactical Periodization Method used by some of the World's Top Coaches

  • Improve all attributes (technical, conditioning & decision making) in every tactical practice
  • Accelerate your players' tactical understanding of their positional roles & responsibilities
  • Players will react quicker, be sharper, and make better decisions in all tactical situations

This groundbreaking book written by Juan Luis Delgado Bordonau PhD and José Alberto Mendez Villanueva PhD is a complete blueprint for Tactical Periodization, providing coaches with the tools to organise the whole football training process - from one specific training practice, to full season planning.

Tactical Periodization is a proven successful football coaching method. All training is driven by tactical training. It allows you the coach, to improve all other attributes (technical, conditioning and decision making) at the same time, within every single tactical practice.

The Benefits of Tactical Periodization:

  • Helps you accelerate your players' understanding of their positional roles and responsibilities in an efficient way, which ultimately improves the team's tactical performance
  • Assures your players are always prepared tactically, mentally and physically for competitive matches
  • Your players (and team) will react quicker, be sharper, and make better decisions in all tactical situations
Jose Mourinho

“It’s all planned and researched so we create these training sessions that are harder than a game. It gives us confidence knowing we have trained to a greater intensity.”

Jose Mourinho

The " Game Model" guides the entire training process. Training must “model” the game through specific practices (specificity) that include all the tactical game principles designed by the coach. You will learn the principle of performance stabilisation, so you can maintain your team’s high performance levels throughout a full season.

Jose Mourinho

“For me, training means training in specificity, creating practices that allow me to enhance my principles of play.”

Jose Mourinho

Accelerate your players' tactical understanding of their positional roles & responsibilities - Players will react quicker, be sharper, and make better decisions in all tactical situations

Vitor Frade "The Father of Tactical Periodization"
Vitor Frade

Manuel da Costa (Vitor) Frade is the creator of Tactical Periodization. He is known in Portugal, Brazil and Spain as one of the world's greatest experts and thinkers when it comes to football methodologies.

Vitor revolutionised football coaching by combining all phases of the game, making sure that the tactical dimension is at the forefront of every training session - there is no need for specific physical, tactical or technical training.

The "Game Model" guides the entire training process.

This philosophy is based around getting the players to think, learn and develop, to make the right decisions based on the coach's style of play. This leads to performance stabilisation throughout the season.

Italian Academy Training Sessions for U11-14
A Complete Soccer Coaching Program from the Academies of the Italian Serie ‘A'

This FULL COLOUR book contains 12 complete soccer training sessions detailing over 80 practices and progressions as used in the academies of the Serie ‘A’. Each session focuses on technical or tactical elements of training and are structured “from simple practices to more complex game situations”. This outlines a complete program of training across the 12 sessions.

The 12 sessions (over 80 practices) cover the following attributes:

Technical training; passing and receiving, quick combination play, possession, ball control and dribbling, 1 v 1’s, feints and moves to beat, crossing, finishing, shooting and heading, football specific conditioning with and without the ball, coordination, acceleration, speed, and agility training.

Tactical training; game situations, tactical small sided games, phase of plays, creating space and improving game intelligence, possession play, attacking combinations, Psycho-Kinetics (Think and Act Quickly), quick transitional play, defensive positioning, set plays, build-up play from the back and more.

Most of the practices cleverly structured for “global training” which means working on more than one attribute at the same time. This is valid for all players, with drills and exercises for specific roles (Attackers, midfielders and defenders).

There are also numerous variations for many of the practices, meaning that the 12 sessions can be repeated again and again providing great practices for any coach to produce academy level training sessions.

    Foreword by Vicente Del Bosque
    Vicente Del Bosque

    I think this book can be considered a prize for the years of work done by professionals working in the Football Schools of the RFEF (Spanish Football Federation). All of them are very good coaches, but what is more important in my point of view, is that they are great educators.

    I have the opportunity to see the work that is done with the children in the schools of the RFEF live. I am proud to observe the treatment of the students. As well as teaching them all the technical skills they need and how to position themselves on the pitch, they are instilled in the values of fellowship, teamwork, discipline, and respect for their coach, teammates and opponents.

    Eduardo Valcárcel

    I am the Director of the School of the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (Spanish Football Federation). For many years, I have had the great dream of creating a book to include all of our football practices we use at the Spanish Football Federation. It has not been an easy task, because in it I wanted to capture the work of many coaches who, with love and dedication, give every day, so that the children can progress and learn in the best way possible.

    The Football School of the Spanish Federation currently has more than 800 students aged between 4 and 15 years old. We take into account the application of the methodology of learning by age, so that the child ends up being an athlete and a professional football player.

    Throughout the season, we practice these exact types of activities, because we consider it fundamental that the children learn and understand the practices perfectly, and little by little, work on variations that make them more difficult, forcing them to strive for the perfect execution.

    One hundred percent of the work done today, is undoubtedly one of the great and most profitable changes of all these years in football. Developing players need to train while always using the ball - with it the work will always be much better and more fruitful. This is my best advice, to always have players using a ball in your sessions from beginning to end, for all practices.
