5 Edited his own DVD Creation of the Football Game. Most of the exercises shown on this DVD are originally designed by Zupan and have been practically tested in different activities and matches on the national level. All exercises correspond to national-level demand, where a team must be synchronised and coordinated in a very short period. Exercises are adapted to both phases of the game continuous attack and counterattack. As part of Zupan s An Ace in the Feet project we traditionally organise Football Training Centres for young talented football players (8 19 years) and special camps for young goalkeepers called Lock your gate twice a year (in summer and winter). We are now monitoring the development of 40 young Slovenian football players some of whom are very talented In October 2012 he started a football programme in cooperation with the high school centre in Koper for those students who want to become professional football players From his camps he has selected several talented young players with whom Zupan also works individually Representing some special young talents (U-11 16) in cooperation and agreement with their parents Working with parents of young talented footballers so they can give their children proper support Branko Zupan has made two of his own innovations to improve football training: 1. A multi-purpose football training device which offers many possibilities for focused and specialised football training Photo 3: Multi-purpose football trainer device Photo 4: Practising headers Photo 5: Practising volleys 5

6 Zupy Gym: A multi-functional modular sports hall with a special programme for football players Photo 5: Outside appearance of the hall Photo 6: Part of the hall interior Zupan carries out and develops his work in three important areas: 1. HIGH QUALITY PHYSICAL AND TECHNICAL PREPARATION, in Slovenia he cooperates with various experts from this area Faculty of Sport of the University of Ljubljana, Institute of Kinesiology - University of Primorska) Zupan has investigated and developed various football game systems and models. Technical practices contain many elements of Coerver s work method, because that method can bring a player s technical preparation close to the level of South American technical skills. 2. HIGH QUALITY TACTICAL AND STRATEGIC PREPARATION FOR THE TEAM AND SELECTED INDIVIDUALS: In the area of tactics Zupan has developed an interesting football game model for U-19 and U-21 national teams in Slovenia. In designing the football game, he applied a work method that encourages the tactical and technical progress of players. His work method has produced very good results. He has developed the special strategic and tactical preparation of individual players and the whole team. Such strategic preparation seeks to activate sensory energetic processes within an individual, facilitating their much better sense of the whole space (field) and their enhanced cooperation with other players during a game. This form of strategic preparation should occur before training with the intention of ensuring the most effective tactical part of training. In the tactical part of training, Zupan synchronises the team in a way that enables players to change their playing positions and become ever more universal. He practises this tactical form through the 1: 4: 3: 3 system, which can be modified during a game depending on the opponent's weaknesses or playing style. 3. THE HIGH QUALITY REGENERATIVE PREPARATION OF FOOTBALL PLAYERS is the third area of Zupan s work, striving to make the best of an individual s regenerative training. 6

7 Branko Zupan s professional work is based on an approach that enables the high quality development of a player s true potential throughout the training process, and above all an extremely good analysis of an individual and his skills and therefore a quality selection process. Zupan s complete system of work yields excellent results because he is able to achieve a very high level of synchronisation of all players of a team within the optimal time and therefore improve the the way they play football and match results. Photo 7: Zupan s Slovenian U-21 national team celebrating after they defeated Scotland in 2005 Branko Zupan wishes to work with very ambitious professionals who want to learn how to adopt a winning mentality and achieve their best!
