Abstract
Small-sided soccer games allow increasing players specific practice time eliciting simultaneously phy- sical and technical aspects within a major tactical involvement. Youth players’ performance in ‘‘three- a-side’’ drills are used very often without knowing their real impact. Thus, the aim of the current study was to identify heart rate and technical responses to variation in pitch dimension (30620 m; 20615 m) and surface (grass; rough sand) in ‘‘three-a-side’’ drills performed by youth players (age 9.9+0.64). Each drill condition lasted for 15 min, with a 6-min period of active recovery. Heart rate was evaluated through heart rate reserve (HRR). Tech- nical an...
