Eerikkilä National Training Center and Finnish Floorball Association are monitoring in co-operation the development of Floorball players and organizing coaching education for coaches and directors of coaching. The concept was established 2017 and it´s called MAAJOUKKUETIE, and a key area for it is to create a comprehensive development monitoring system of floorball players in different age groups and implement the coaching education based on those results.
The Development monitoring concept will enable the development of Finnish players according to training plan and to emphasize the correct direction of training in different age phases.The monitoring concept has been developed based on the floorball analysis and international requirements. This provides the option to compare the development of Finnish players to the floorball analysis and to the players of different age groups in other countries.
The concept includes tools for monitoring general motor skills, floorball skills, game vision, physical fitness, cognitive ability as well as psychological and social characteristics. Player background and training data is also collected. The data will be stored in a common database through which the development of an individual player can be monitored throughout the career.
In the long term, data collection will enable the option to chart the player path of future Finnish top players.
The aim is to develop the contents and methods of coach training. The know-how of coaches and operational theory will be elevated to a new level through the development of training. The training will focus on the development of activities in accordance with top-level floorball.
The premise for content development is an individual coaching philosophy. The player is at the core, and the entire content of the training process supports the comprehensive development of an individual player. Updated training focuses on the monitoring of the comprehensive development of the player, training programming, interaction and feedback.
Method development starts with the most effective learning processes, where the learners themselves are active and create new information and a higher-quality practical implementation. An electronic learning environment enables a learning process, which also allows the exchange of information and ideas outside the face-to-face training sessions, regardless of the time and the place. The cognitive learning material will be studied in an electronic learning environment, which allows face-to-face training to concentrate on high-quality implementation in the floorball rink.
Eerikkilä engages in floorball research in collaboration with the KIHU Research Institute for Olympic Sports and the UKK Institute.
Main areas of research:
- The comprehensive development of players throughout their careers (technical, tactical, physical, psychological, social)
- The development of the quantity and quality of training
- The development of individual and team play
- Injury prevention
- The development of the competence of coach
Eerikkilä shares research information with the field through annual seminars as well as national and international publications. In addition to this, Eerikkilä organises info events around Finland.
Electronic development and learning environment MyEWay
MyEWay is an electronic development and learning environment for coaching and coach training. The diverse properties of the MyEWay system can be utilised in comprehensive player development monitoring and development and in supporting different training processes. MyEWay enables efficient collaboration between players, coaches and directors of coaching regardless of time and place.
We have fixed video recording system in our Floorball arena. The system can be used to record matches and exercises from different angles. The material is stored on a video server, from where it can be transferred for use and further processing for use by coaches, for example via an external hard drive or electronic environment.
The camera system is supported by a technical unit where video libraries can be made from games and exercises using the iPad. These video libraries can be easily transferred to an electronic environment.
