Borussia Dortmund’s version includes a machine that shoots balls automatically towards the player in a ​​14 square meters area. The athlete is placed in the center of this area being the balls thrown in his direction at different speeds with a random variety of heights and angles. Then the player must receive the ball, look up in order to identify which of the 64 targets have their lights on, try to hit it with the ball as quickly as possible and return to the starting position to receive the next ball. This process is repeated successively during the training session. The coach receives all the data by computer.
