The goal of the course is to introduce the students with the history, rules and organization of the football competition and structural and biomechanical (kinematic and dynamic) characteristics of technical-tactical elements in football.
2.2.Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course
No enrolment requirements.
2.3.Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
Students will acquire a high level knowledge which will enable them a conduction of the most complicated propositions in the field of selected sport (football) at all levels. They will acquire knowledge on the results of scientific researches about the structural and biomechanical characteristics of the sport. Students will be qualified to apply acquired knowledge and skills in all forms of practical activities.
2.4.Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)
Students will be able to: understand the position of the football game within the different sport classifications, explain and demonstrate basic knowledge about football techniques, basics of tactics, indentify influences and contributions of particular motor knowledge and skills on performance in the football game or game segments and on the other hand the influence of football training and game on complete anthropological status.
