Running Intensities in Elite Youth Soccer by Age and Position
Duthie, GM, Thornton, HR, Delaney, JA, Connolly, DR, and Serpiello, FR. Running intensities in elite youth soccer by age and position. J Strength Cond Res 32(10): 2918–2924, 2018—The purpose of this investigation was to examine differences between the peak running speed, acceleration, and metabolic power of elite youth soccer across a range of age levels by position. Ninety-six elite junior soccer players were assessed between 2015 and 2017. Ninety-six elite junior soccer players (at time of match: age, 15.8 ± 0.9 years; body mass, 69.1 ± 8.0 kg) were assessed during 61 games within the 2015, 2016, and 2017 season, for a total of 441 individual match observations (4.8 ± 3.3 matches per player, range 1–13). Participants were classified by age group: under 15 (U15, n = 121, 14.7 ± 0.3 years), under 16 (U16, n = 176, 15.8 ± 0.3 years), or under 17 (U17, n = 144, 16.7 ± 0.4 years), and according to their playing position: Attacker (ATT), Defender (DEF), Mid-Fielder (MID), or Wide (WIDE). Participants wore global positioning system units during each match, where speed (m·min−1), acceleration/deceleration (m·s−2), and metabolic power (Pmet) were established. A 1- to 10-minute moving average was applied to establish the intercept (c) and slope (n) of running intensity variables as a power law y = cxn relationship. Linear mixed models were used to examine differences in the intercept and slope betwe...

CONCLUSION: Use of VR facility tours as an alternative to in-person tours of affiliate training facilities during a residency interview day is a viable and innovative option that can save time and money and favorably impact the applicant's impression of the program. More research is necessary to assess whether VR tours can replace in-person tours at the main teaching site, however, while social distancing measures are in place, VR tours may become necessary for programs moving forward.

Authors: Roberts V, Malone K, Moore P, Russell-Webster T, Caulfield R Abstract Our personal views about the challenges of continuing to deliver peer teaching during a pandemic. We are a group of 4th year medical students who are part of a student society which has delivered structured, highly formulaic peer-led teaching sessions for the past three years. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the reduced access to our normal clinical teaching highlighted the importance of peer-led teaching sessions. We wanted to continue with our peer-taught sessions but knew we would have to devise a new format to make our teaching accessi...
