Geir Jordet’s (PhD football psychology) study of Premier League players has shown that players with a high frequency of scanning/awareness prior to receiving a pass, increase their likelihood of a successful forward pass substantially. More on Norwegian researcher (Geir Jordet) and Xavi.
This skill can be trained by Be Your Best™ Cognitive Training. Particularly pre-orientation and awareness during the last highly important seconds before receiving a pass. Alongside with fast optimal decision-making. The training scenarios are tailor made or replicas of `turning points` from real UEFA Champions League and FIFA World Championship games, while the cognitive benchmark is the world’s best players.
Other Be Your Best™ mental performance areas includes cope with success, handling pressure, cope with adversity and self-regulative learning.
You want the fun competition through Be Your Best™ leaderboards and high-score list. You want to follow individual, team and club improvements. But most of all you want real cognitive metrics like top teams have in the physical and technical area.

After using Be Your Best™ for 3-4 months, 20 players from Norway U19 national team answered in March 2018 that they believed their cognitive performance on the pitch would improve because of the VR-training.
They scored an average of 4,6 out of maximum 5 (on scale 1 no improvement to 5 substantial improvement). 10 days later they beat Germany U19 5-2, one of the world’s best U19, thus knocking out both Germany U19 and Holland U19 whilst qualifying for the U19 UEFA European Championship 2018.
When you are investing money and time in improving on the pitch, you want it to pay off. Our approach is based on research, building on what evidence has demonstrated most effective.
