Background: Sporting success puts high requirements in terms of physical stress, it causes a major threat to an athlete’s health. Therefore, there is a need for effective training methods in order to reduce the number of contusions and sports injuries. For this purpose a method of intellectual training in the mastery of motor actions (playing technique) of young football players is recommended.

Material/Methods: The influence of intellectualization on the training process and the state of health was studied in young football players (16 years old), students of the Sports School in Cracow. Continuous research was conducted from 1996 to 2001. A group of 92 players in two groups: 46-experimental group, 46-control group was examined.

Results: Research has shown that the intellectualization of training, which reduced the volume of the body load by 14%, has a positive impact on the effectiveness of training and helps to reduce the number of injuries during sports training.

Conclusions: Intellectual training is beneficial to the effectiveness of young football players’ technical actions. The intellectualization of the training process reduces the physical burden, and exposing the aware action affects the condition of lower limb injuries in young players.

Key words: intellectualization, training, effectiveness of teaching, sports injuries
