The importance of the research was to develop the physical capabilities to serve the skill side of the players and to form appropriate, rapid and sudden motor programs, as well as to improve the work of muscle memory for the purpose of performing the dribbling skill economically, with effort and with high efficiency. The objectives of the research were to prepare neuromuscular activation exercises in multiple axes in physical abilities, muscle memory, and accuracy of the dribbling skill. Soccer for applicants, and to identify the effect of neuromuscular stimulation exercises on muscle memory. The researchers assumed that there were significant differences between the pre- and post-tests of the research group in physical abilities, muscle memory, and accuracy of the soccer dribbling skill for the applicants.
The research community included the clubs of Wasit Governorate participating in the Iraqi League, the second division in football, which numbered (3) clubs (Al-Hay, Al-Kut and Al-Numaniyah). The total research community reached (52) players distributed among (3) clubs (Al-Hay 16 players, Al-Kut 18). The researchers selected their research sample in a simple random way by drawing lots among the three clubs, and Al-Kout Club was chosen. The study was conducted at the Olympic Stadium of Al-Kout Sports Club for the period from 22/3/2023 - 1/6/2023.
The researchers identified the physical and skill abilities that serve the current study, which are the instantaneous ability of the legs, rapid strength, and the dribbling skill, and conducted tests for them and applied neuromuscular stimulation exercises for performing the dribbling skill, which targeted the lower extremities. The exercises were within the cycle of lengthening and shortening in an unbalanced manner, as the exercises were according to work axes, taking into account performance using a method of strength training of different amounts, which was applied to a part of the body. After completing the exercises, the researchers conducted post-tests, extracted their results, analyzed them statistically, and discussed them to reach the conclusions and recommendations that came out after conducting the research.
