Warm Ups

Warm-ups and cool-downs are two of the most important aspects of your training and match day routines.

It’s vital that your players warm-up and cool-down properly in order to maximise their performance and reduce the risk of injury. We tell you how and why warm-ups and cool-downs work and we suggest some activities that you might try with your team.
