SCANNING - How to Train it and Develop Game Awareness
See More, Think Quicker, Play better
The Soccer eyeQ methodology is a proven and successful coaching method to increase scanning, improve game awareness, train your players to think quicker and make better decisions.

This groundbreaking book is written by Kevin McGreskin (UEFA A Licence and UEFA Coaching Instructor), who noticed the problem that too many players focus intently on the ball, control it, and only then look up to see the options.

The Average Player's Limited Decision Making Process:


These players fail
to be consistently effective for a number of reasons, including:

  • Failure to see opportunities
  • Tempo of their play is too slow
  • Allow the opposition to react and defend effectively
  • Poor support in both attack and defence

The Proven Soccer eyeQ Training Methodology Process:

The Soccer eyeQ practices force players to scan more frequently and read the game situation by adding visual cues, which the players must spot and call out before receiving.

With the "picture" created, your players will:

  • Be quicker and sharper
  • Improve game awareness
  • Make quicker and better decisions in all situations
