The Pons Method exponentially revolutionizes the Tactical Periodization work in a team.
The “Tactical Periodization” is a Training Methodology used in football that arose more than thirty years ago from the head of Professor Vítor Frade, now years later the “Pons Method” was born, which is this Process that acts as a key tool for understanding of the game model by the team, after this pandemic, becomes more valuable, because we have realized the importance of making the game model understood in a fast and effective way.
The two methodologies, one more global and the other more individual and by groups, help to understand that football and the “game” that a team produces cannot be understood from Classical Scientific Thought (analytical and decontextualizing) given its globality, unpredictability and non-state. -linear, decides to search in Theories more appropriate to the types of problems that they pose, reaching Systematic Theories, which together with certain recommended Methodological Principles end up configuring the “Tactical Periodization” and now the “Pons Method” in addition to helping the Tactical periodization, offers a very high efficiency and productivity in training, in addition to revolutionizing individual training and the rehabilitation of the injured player, acting as an intermediate method between the rehabilitation and physical trainer and the return of the player to group training.
Both the “Tactical Periodization” and the “Pons Method” are Training Methodologies whose main concern is the “play” that a Team intends to produce in the competition. That is why the Game Model is assumed as a guide for the entire Process, producing a modeling through the Principles, Sub-principles and Sub-principles of the “Game” that make it up, achieving a specific and quality adaptation by respecting the Methodological Principles that sustain it.
Training must take on extreme importance at a tactical level, dealing with all the aspects that the Coach wants to occur (Game Model) within the field of play at the different moments that Football has.
The Principles are general behaviors that the Coach wants to occur within his “game.” The Sub-Principles will be more specific behaviors that will occur within that general behavior. Therefore, the exercises should be the simplification of the “Game”, from simple to more complex structures, through Principles and Sub-principles, which would come to make up the intended Game Model.
The Pons Method as well as the Tactical Periodization work together, in this way, the exercises that seek to organize a Team must simulate moments of the competition, and this simulation has to be translated into exercises that in their own essence do not decontextualize what is or will be the competitive reality. That is why the greatest number of players must be made to think in the same way when faced with a given situation, that is, to have a clear objective from day one, and for them the Pons method will always act as an introductory model, so individual, in groups, or in groups, helping to understand more easily and more quickly, the model of the coach’s game.
The “Tactical Periodization” always works the principle of specificity, not giving rise, therefore, to analytical and decontextualized exercises and they were because a method such as the pons method had not been discovered, because the tactical periodization rejects physical or technical training separate from the Game Model, precisely because they alienated him, led to an unspecificity in the Process with its subsequent consequences. Why? because it had never been thought of an individual or group training method, by lines, focused as a whole.
That is to say as the tactical periodization. It is a method of helping the adaptation of tactical periodization in a team, thus helping to understand the game model, the tactical factor being the predominant factor, but working at the same time other principles and sub-principles of training.
